Common Causes & Types of Work Injuries

After you have been involved in a workplace accident, it is important that you seek medical attention and report the injury, in writing if possible. Having a detailed account of the accident and proof that you reported the incident can prove beneficial later.

Workplace accidents can come in many forms and the injuries can vary significantly. Accidents may be caused by heavy equipment, elevator, forklifts, or even simply a lack of maintenance or training.

A few examples of common injuries suffered on the job include:

  • Broken bones
  • Back injuries
  • Amputations
  • Paralysis
  • Neck injuries
  • Severed nerves
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Brain injuries

How Do Third Party Injury Claims Work?

In some work injury cases, a third party can be held responsible for your accident and a separate personal injury claim may be filed against them. Some common examples of third party negligence claims include the following:

  • Defective manufacturing or designs in work equipment
  • Being hit by another driver while operating a company vehicle

If you believe that your work injury was caused by or contributed to by a third party's negligence, our Starkville work injury attorneys can help you file a claim in addition to your workers' compensation claim.
