Types of Workplace Injuries

Slips and Falls

Some of the most common workplace injuries are slips and falls. These can range from simple slips resulting in rolled ankles to severe falls that cause disability. They happen most in professions exposed to changing weather patterns, such as groundskeepers, security guards, and outdoor workers. Snow tracked inside, icy surfaces, and water spills create an innate hazard, even at work.


Overexertion is experienced most among people with physical labor jobs, including construction workers, health care professionals, and those working in warehouses. Without appropriate breaks, it's more than possible to sustain acutely or chronically disabling injuries. Usually, overexertion is the fault of the employer for not providing proper procedures, training, or breaks.

Repetitive Strain

Repetitive strain is considered a more cumulative trauma that develops over time. Examples include trigger finger, Raynaud’s disease, and impingement syndrome, among many others. These injuries may be the result of a job mismatched to someone’s physical capability or tasks that overstretch the body for hours on end, which fall under the responsibility of the employer.

Falling/Moving Objects

Projectile objects, equipment falling from shelves, or tools and materials falling from heights on a building site can land on or hit anyone, causing injuries. Additionally, temporary floor structures can collapse, and simple wall fixtures can fall, creating life-long disabilities. Depending on the weight of a falling object, death by crushing is possible.

Auto Accidents

Operating a vehicle for work-related reasons, even away from the physical workplace or office, falls under the responsibility of the company and your employer. Errands, deliveries, employee transport, driving for a living, and working remotely all count. Auto accident-related workplace injuries may be filed in conjunction with personal injury claims.

Equipment Operation

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has an extensive list of guidelines for workplaces, but violations still occur because of improper training, unsuitable personal protective equipment, and lack of upkeep. Misconduct and mishandling can lead to amputation, burns, brain injuries, eye damage, degloving incidents, and irreversible spinal cord injuries.

  • Health and Wellness Programs: Promote employee health and wellness through programs that encourage physical activity, healthy eating, and stress management.
  • Safety Policies: Establish and enforce safety policies and procedures, including reporting mechanisms for hazards and incidents.
  • Emergency Preparedness: Develop and communicate emergency procedures for responding to accidents, injuries, and other emergencies.
  • Regular Maintenance: Ensure that equipment and machinery are regularly inspected and maintained to prevent malfunctions and accidents.

What should I do if I’m injured at work?

It’s important to notify your employer immediately and file an incident report. Receive any immediate medical attention necessary. Then, gather all relevant documentation and schedule a consultation with one of our Houston work injury accident lawyers. We’ll take it from there.

What can I receive compensation for?

Workers receive compensation for current and future medical expenses, wage loss, and depreciated earning capacity. An attorney will handle getting you disability while the case is still open to ensure your financial stability. You may still be eligible for all these compensations even if the accident was your doing. Laws vary by state.

Why do I need a lawyer?

After a serious injury, you want your family to be supported, especially if you’re the sole provider, or your wage loss will affect your socioeconomic status. It can be difficult to get precisely what you need from your employer when they don’t offer enough if any, workers’ compensation.

How long will it take to resolve my case?

On average, workplace injury suits take about 1.5 years. The amount of time it takes depends on settlement negotiations, the necessity of a hearing, and the filing of an appeal. The length should not be concerning, though; longer negotiations tend to result in the awarding of higher settlements.
