Office injuries may lead to serious injury. Call a skilled Chicago personal injury lawyer today!
Injuries can occur at any given moment and just about anywhere. Many people commonly believe that injury only occurs in conspicuously dangerous settings and places. However, personal injury is not limited to car accidents or truck accidents; countless injuries happen in the workplace as well. Work-related injury is in fact very common. Although your occupation may not pose any obvious danger or threat, the possibility of injury still exists. This is especially true with office injuries. Typically, office injuries are the result of repetitive tasks, but they may also be the result of occasional lifting, poor air quality and more. One of the most common types of office injuries is carpal tunnel syndrome, an injury often caused by repetitive wrist motion. Required work-related travel and defective office equipment are also common factors of serious injury. If you have been injured in the workplace or suffered an office injury, you may be entitled to compensation even if your employer does not offer worker’s comp.
