Did you know that work-related injuries are highest among healthcare workers?
I met with Harry Brown personally and he sat with me for 20 minutes at our initial consultation to explain everything. He even called after my surgery to see how I was doing. I met with him several more times after that and was kept informed about my case throughout. I highly recommend Harry Brown as an attorney.
The Most Common Work-Related Injuries we See in Our Georgia Offices:
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.
Slip and Fall
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.
Objects that fall from a height frequently cause serious head, face, neck and foot injuries. Some examples include:
