Workplace Injury Statistics

Workplace accidents and injuries occur far too often. Over 100 Georgians suffer fatal work injuries each year, and up to 120,000 suffer on-the-job injuries and illnesses that require time off work.

What Are Common Work Injuries?

Workers’ compensation cases can cover a wide range of accidents and injuries. Some of the most common include:

  • Sprains and strains resulting from falls or overexertion
  • Cancers and other illnesses caused by exposure to dangerous substances or chemicals
  • Burns from fires, explosions, equipment, frostbite, or chemicals
  • Respiratory illnesses from unsafe or unsanitary work conditions

Car and truck accidents are the leading causes of work-related death. Delivery drivers and those who operate heavy machinery and equipment are especially at risk. If you lost a loved one in a workplace accident, our personal injury lawyers also handle wrongful death claims.

A failure to abide by safety regulations or a failure to provide proper training can indicate employer negligence. If there was an equipment failure due to a flaw in the design or improper maintenance, then you may also have a products liability case.

What Should You Do After An Accident At Work?

When an injury occurs in the workplace, it’s important to take action quickly. Medical needs should immediately be assessed. If injuries are serious, call 911 and follow your medical provider’s instructions.

No matter the severity of the injury, the employee or employee’s advocate should immediately begin collecting all related facts and information. Any witnesses should be interviewed right away to avoid any details fading from their memory. Your employer should also be informed in writing that an injury occurred on the job.

To inform your employer, you can send an email or letter as soon as possible stating:

  • When and where the accident occurred
  • How the accident happened
  • Details regarding the injuries you sustained and their effects

Make sure to keep a copy of this and other relevant documentation – including medical bills and receipts – in a safe place. These materials are invaluable to your workers’ comp claim.
