Office work may not seem inherently dangerous, but every job has risks. And every worker deserves dedicated representation and aggressive advocacy when an on-the-job injury strikes. At Tillman & Associates in Atlanta, Georgia, we provide experienced legal counsel to all types of injured workers, including those who spend their days in an office. Too often, office workers do not realize that they have experienced a compensable injury. If you have been injured as a result of your job, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. Workers may experience a range of office injuries, including:
- Repetitive stress injuries – Repetitive motions such as typing or clicking a mouse can result in carpal tunnel syndrome and other painful conditions.
- Lifting injuries – Lifting heavy objects such as books, equipment or reams of paper can cause serious back injuries. These problems may occur suddenly due to trauma or gradually over time.
- Falls – Falls are a risk at any workplace and they can have devastating consequences. Falls may occur as a result of slipping on a wet floor, tripping on something or standing on a chair.
- Injuries caused by noise – Office workers who work on or near construction sites, manufacturing facilities or other loud spaces are at risk of ear damage and permanent hearing loss.
Your employer or its insurance provider may try to downplay the seriousness of a work-related injury to deny or underpay your claim. For this reason, it is essential to get in touch with a knowledgeable lawyer who can help you protect your interests and insist on fair treatment.
