Glen Burnie Workplace Injury Lawyer

We expect that we will work in safe conditions. After all, who wants to get injured or killed while at work? Unfortunately, though, this happens every day. Workers are seriously injured due to various environmental conditions. Some injuries are minor, allowing the employee to continue work as usual. Then there are injuries that are so catastrophic in nature that the employee has to take many months off work. In some cases, the employee may never be able to work ever again.

When this happens, you need to protect your legal rights. Even though you cannot work and earn money, you can still receive workers’ compensation benefits to help replace your income to some degree and even pay for medical bills and other damages you have suffered.

Need help filing a claim? Have questions about the process? Contact a Glen Burnie workplace injury lawyer from the Law Offices of Steinhardt, Siskind and Lieberman, LLC today and we’ll advocate for your legal rights.

Types of Workplace Injuries

A person can be injured in the workplace through a number of ways. Here are some common injuries and accidents:

  • Slips, trips, and falls. These are among the most common workplace injuries and can occur due to wet or slippery floors, cluttered walkways, uneven surfaces, or inadequate lighting.
  • Caught-in or caught-between injuries. These injuries are common on construction sites and in factories and warehouses. They occur when a worker is caught in or compressed by machinery, equipment, or objects. Examples include getting caught in conveyor belts, caught between moving parts of machinery, or being struck by a swinging object.
  • Musculoskeletal injuries. These injuries can result from overexertion, repetitive motion, lifting heavy objects, or maintaining awkward postures for extended periods.
  • Strains and sprains. Strains involve the stretching or tearing of muscles or tendons, while sprains involve the stretching or tearing of ligaments. These injuries often occur during lifting, carrying, pushing, or pulling heavy objects.
  • Cuts and lacerations. These injuries can occur in various work environments, including offices, construction sites, manufacturing plants, and kitchens.
  • Repetitive strain injuries (RSIs). RSIs can result from performing repetitive tasks. Common RSIs include carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, and bursitis.
  • Burns can result from exposure to heat, flames, chemicals, electricity, or radiation. Workers in industries such as food service, manufacturing, and construction are particularly at risk.
  • Falling objects. Workers in construction, manufacturing, and warehousing face a high risk of being struck by falling objects such as tools, equipment, or materials.
  • Exposure to harmful substances. Workers may suffer injuries or illnesses due to exposure to hazardous chemicals, gasses, fumes, dust, or biological agents such as bacteria or viruses.
