Americans are injured at work everyday. What seems like any other day can turn catastrophic in mere seconds. The injuries can have life altering ramifications. In some cases, it can even lead to death.

Most people assume that workers in the construction industry are mostly at risk. That is not the case. People in clerical positions are also injured while on-the-job. A serious injury can take place in just about any field. The list of work-related injuries is practically endless.

Common injuries that workers suffer while on-the-job, include traumatic head injuries, neck injuries, back injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones and carpal tunnel syndrome, to name only a few.

These types of injuries can be traumatic and may take anywhere from days to years to fully recover. A lot of these injuries may be a result from negligence on the part of someone else, including employers.

A work-related injury can affect you ability to perform your job and eventually lead to a loss of wages. You need to understand that you have rights and may be entitled to worker’s compensation.
