Common Workplace Accidents
If you’ve been hurt at work you may qualify to collect workers’ compensation benefits. At Rockwell, Kelly & Duarte, LLP, injured California workers seek out our Modesto workplace accidents lawyers for help after sustaining all sorts of injuries, including those caused by:
- Construction accidents
- Repetitive stress
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Farm accidents
- Factory accidents
- Warehouse accidents
The cause of injuries is varied. What is important is that the injury occurred while you were performing the duties of your job. Injuries can take place anywhere, including at your office, at an off-site location, or even on the road. An injury at work doesn’t always include a physical injury. Workers’ compensation benefits may apply even in cases of:
- Work-related hearing loss
- Mental illness (i.e., depression) triggered by stress or chronic harassment
