Common Injuries Business Professionals May Suffer
As a business professional, you may be at risk for a variety of injuries. If you are injured at work, you have the right to seek workers’ compensation benefits from your employer's insurance company. You may be entitled to a settlement for lost wages, medical bills, travel expenses to and from doctor’s appointments, and other injury-related costs. You will need to show that your injury or illness occurred at work.
Business professionals may be at risk for:
- Slip and fall injuries
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Mental conditions related to stress
Slip and fall accidents can occur anywhere, even at the office. If you trip and fall down the stairs at work, or you slip on a wet floor while walking to your desk, you could suffer serious injuries. These include broken bones, fractures, lacerations, contusions, traumatic brain injuries, soft tissue damage, muscle sprains or strains, and other serious injuries.
Understanding the Risks of Repetitive Strain Injuries & Mental Health Conditions
Repetitive strain injuries are caused by doing the same motions for an extended period of time. For example, typing all day could lead to wrist, hand, and arm injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, and even arthritis. Eye strain from staring at a computer screen could also lead to vision loss, migraines, and other health conditions. Business professionals may suffer back and neck injuries from sitting at a desk for long hours.
As a business professional, you may have to deal with tight deadlines, upset clients, and other stressful situations on a daily basis. Prolonged stress and anxiety could have serious negative effects on your mental health and well-being. If you have suffered a mental health condition directly caused by work-related stress, our Santa Ana workers' compensation attorneys will discuss your options for filing a claim.
