Freak accidents and unusual work injuries

Many of the more common types of workplace injuries have been covered on this blog, such as construction workers falling or road construction accidents. However, accidents that occur on the job can take many forms and may sometimes be considered unusual or highly unlikely. For example, someone may be struck by lightning while working or suffer hearing loss due to prolonged use of a megaphone. Although some uncommon work injuries may not receive much attention, and in some cases may not even be taken seriously, our law firm knows that the consequences of these injuries can be shattering for workers in San Bernardino, California.

Aside from the aforementioned injuries, less common workplace accidents happen in countless other ways. For example, someone may lose their vision due to exposure to toxic chemicals. Or, a worker may be attacked by a vicious animal while carrying out their job duties. Ultimately, there are a wide variety of unusual workplace accidents that leave workers with different kinds of injuries, some of which may keep them from being able to continue performing their job duties.

Whether you were involved in an extremely common work incident or a freak mishap, it is essential for you to go over your rights and do what you can to prevent the accident from making your life even harder. Whether you cannot pay your bills or are unsure of how you will find another job, workers' comp could be a lifeline. On our workplace injuries page, you can read more about on-the-job accidents.
