Work Related Injuries can range from something minor that heals within a few days to something severe that never heals. Certain work environments can by more hazardous than others, but it is possible to obtain an injury no matter where you work.
The most common work-related injuries we see in our Georgia offices include:
The most common work-related injury is overextension. This often occurs when a person is pushing, pulling, lifting, throwing, or carrying. Overextending may cause torn or sprained muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Over extension may also cause back related injuries such as disc herniations.
Slipping and falling on the job is another very common work injury. It is most prominent on job sites where liquids can be spilled, or there is debris. Slip and fall injuries usually result in bone fractures, head injuries, or torn ligaments.
The most common issue that occurs from repetitive motion at work is carpal tunnel syndrome. However, repetitive motion with any body part such as the shoulders, neck, and arms may also cause significant pain.
