Everyone likes to think that their job won’t lead to serious injuries or even death. However, there are situations that can arise where repetitive stress or a workplace accident could lead to injuries that dramatically alter the life of a worker. These injuries can happen in any industry, though they are more common in more dangerous, high-risk industries.
For example, many people work in construction. This is a high-risk industry where heavy equipment, powerful tools, dangerous substances and precarious heights are the norm. Construction workers need to be careful, and their employers and contractors need to apply safety standards at construction zones to ensure that workers and innocent bystanders are protected from the inherently dangerous nature of these areas.
But there are also repetitive stress injuries that can occur in a lot of jobs. With these injuries, people could be affected for the rest of their lives. Workers’ compensation goes a long way to help people with the finances they desperately need, and almost all industries will comply with workers’ comp standards. However, this doesn’t mean that every claim will be accepted. Denied claims can cause someone to suffer even more in the wake of a workplace accident or injury.
It is in these cases where legal help is necessary. If you have suffered due to workplace injuries or a workplace accident and your workers’ compensation claim has been denied or is being held up due to legal complications, then get in touch with the Law Offices of Bo Katzakian.
