Dangerous Jobs and The Injuries They Cause

Many jobs in Los Angeles and throughout the country can be extremely dangerous. But what most people don’t understand is that any job can result in a workers’ compensation claim. Accidents happen when we least expect them and in ways that we can never anticipate. Regardless of how big or small your accident was, you have a right to file a workers’ compensation claim. Oaks Law is a law firm experienced in getting you the compensation you deserve for your work injury. Some examples of work injuries include:

Auto Accidents: 
If your job requires you to operate your motor vehicle, and you are injured in an accident while driving as part of your job activities, you can file a workers’ compensation claim to be compensated for your injuries.

Back Injuries: 
Many jobs come with a risk of back injury. Any position that requires lifting, standing for extended periods of time, pulling, and carrying can cause back injury. Many delivery persons, warehouse workers, nurses and caregivers, and construction workers suffer back injuries in the course of their employment.

Shoulder, Knee, and Elbow Injuries: 
Workers who routinely use their arms, especially lifting their arms above their heads, are susceptible to serious shoulder and elbow injuries. Similarly, the knee joint and its surrounding muscles and tendons can suffer serious injuries from years of stress or from a single wrong move. These injuries often affect painters, carpenters, construction workers, police officers, and any other physically demanding job.

Catastrophic Injuries: In some cases, there can be catastrophic injuries, from explosions, falls, machinery malfunction, and other dangerous accidents. These injuries happen most often to factory workers, construction workers, warehouse workers, miners, and other high-risk occupations.

Exposure Illness and Injury: 
An often overlooked source of job-related injury is illness as a result of exposure. Asbestos, mold, chemicals, and smoke can all cause serious and often fatal illnesses, often times may years after the exposure occurred.

Regardless of the type of work injury you have sustained, you need medical help and a great lawyer immediately. Some problems associated with an accident may not be present until days or weeks later, but it’s important that you visit your physician as well as document recurring symptoms.

Recovering the Damages You Deserve

If someone else is to blame for your injuries, you have the right to seek compensation for the full amount of damages you've suffered. These damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, as well as pain and suffering. You must bring forth your claim within one year of the accident date. Not filing your case within one year will bar you from recovery.
