Many people erroneously believe that work injuries can only occur in occupations that pose significant peril such as railroad work or construction. In truth, work injuries can occur anywhere, including the office. Office injuries happen far more frequently than reported. Working long hours at a desk every day can lead to a number of injuries. Carpal tunnel is one of the most common types of office injuries that results from the repetitive use of a keyboard. The continued repetition of the same wrist and finger movements can lead to this type of stress injury. Furthermore, office injuries may result from faulty equipment, defective office furniture, slip and falls, work-related travel, poor air quality, and numerous other hazards. If you suffered an office injury, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation and/or other worker benefits. This is may be true even if you believe the accident was your fault. Therefore, it is imperative that you seek the legal advice of an experienced personal injury lawyer.
