Although most of us associate workplace injuries with potentially dangerous occupations, such as jobs in the construction or industrial sectors, the fact is that workplace injuries can occur in almost any sector of employment. Workplace injuries are fairly common.
For example, repetitive motion injuries do not occur “all of a sudden,” but, over the course of time, these types of injuries can significantly inhibit a person’s ability to perform their workplace functions. Doing the same activity all day, every day could lead to joint problems or back problems, for instance. Then, there is the reality that a worker may suffer an injury in a fall at work – or from something falling on them.
In the best-case scenario, a worker who suffers an on-the-job injury may need to take a few days off to recover and will then be able to get back to work. However, in the worst-case scenarios, workers suffer significant injuries, like brain or spinal injuries, that might permanently impact their ability to return to work and earn an income. When this occurs, injured workers need to know their potential legal options.
At our law firm, we work with Ohio residents who have been injured on the job. We understand the delicate position these individuals are in from a financial perspective – unable to work and earn an income, thereby leaving their family’s finances in a lurch.
