Work-Related Injuries

Far too many workers are hurt on the job every day. According to a 2018 report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 4,500 workers are killed in workplace accidents every year.

At Carter Law Office in Cumming, Georgia, we know how painful, stressful and expensive an on-the-job injury can be. We have helped many employees throughout Forsyth County and the surrounding communities find peace and recovery after serious injuries at work.

Common Injures On The Job

Every workplace has hazards, and work-related accidents can cause all types of injuries. At Carter Law Office, we have extensive experience helping people affected by common workplace injuries, including:

  • Back and neck injuries from falls or lifting
  • Electrical shock
  • Injuries caused by toxic exposure, i.e. inhalation/breathing
  • Injuries to knees, shoulders and other major joints
  • Repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Work-related vehicle accidents

Even if an injury or illness seems minor, you need to report it to your supervisor and note any witnesses to the injury. It is also important to seek qualified medical attention as soon as possible. A panel of doctors should be posted in a prominent area, allowing you to go to seek treatment. Injuries may worsen quickly, and it is wise to establish a record of medical care and document your injuries right away.

Sources Of Compensation For Injured Workers

Workers' compensation provides essential benefits to injured workers, but those benefits may not be enough to cover all the costs associated with an injury. In some cases, workers may be able to pursue other sources of compensation.

When employers or other third parties may contribute to a work injury through negligence or wrongdoing, it may be possible to bring a civil suit to establish their legal responsibility and pursue additional damages. These claims are complex, and it is important to handle them appropriately to avoid compromising potential compensation. A knowledgeable work injury attorney can help you understand your options and help you make the best decision for your recovery and your loved ones.
