We have covered many different reasons why workplace accidents occur, from slippery surfaces to dangers that are present on construction sites. However, there are many more factors that can contribute to a workplace accident that workers and employers sometimes fail to realize. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we know that some people are under an incredible amount of stress due to back-to-school season. Believe it or not, this stress could cause an accident to take place on a job site in San Bernardino, California.
Aside from the stress that some employees encounter as parents, back-to-school season can cause workplace accidents in other ways as well. For example, a school bus driver may be involved in an accident, or a teacher may be hurt after returning to work from summer break. Moreover, the increase in school traffic could cause a delivery driver or someone else who is required to drive a vehicle to sustain an injury while working.
Sometimes, parents may have difficulty paying attention at work because of a lack of sleep or an incredible amount of stress they are going through with their children returning to school, increasing the chances that something will go wrong. Regardless of the factors that play a role in a workplace accident, the consequences can make life very hard for victims and it could help for them to review workers’ comp.
