Workplace Accidents

Pannun Law Firm is a full service Workers Compensation & Personal Injury that is centered on providing personalized attention and maximum results for our clients. Our experienced workers’ compensation & personal injury attorneys will diligently pursue your case and get you the compensation that you are entitled to. In fact, the number of workplace fatalities recorded in 2014 increased by 5% from the previous year to more than 4,800 deaths in the United States, the largest tally in six years, the agency said.

Serious workplace injuries often are life-changing events that cost the injured party their accustomed quality of living for months, if not forever. While worker compensation payments can offset some of the lost wages while an employee is recovering from an injury, they usually do not begin to cover the true costs of a workplace mishap, especially in the event of serious physical issues.

Often, there are complications with insurance companies and employers when worker compensation claims are filed, underscoring the value of an experienced attorney who can help maximize the benefits to which the injured parties are entitled.

It doesn’t always take much for workers to become disabled, temporarily or permanently. While heavy industry accounts for many serious injuries related to lifting and moving freight and other items, sometimes injuries result from the smallest sources, like a slippery floor or wobbly ladder.

Possible work injuries include:

  • Burns
  • Electric shocks
  • Eye injury, including vision impairment or blindness
  • Hearing impairment or loss
  • Broken bones
  • Skin diseases or disorders
  • Respiratory conditions
  • Knee and ankle injuries
  • Neck, shoulder, or back injuries
  • Falls from roofs, ladders, and scaffolds
  • Trauma from falling or flying objects
  • Wounds or amputations from being squeezed, caught, crushed, pinched, or compressed between two or more objects, or between parts of an object
  • Violence

Sometimes, serious medical issues are directly related to improperly serviced equipment, breakdowns of machinery, and mistakes made by co-workers or customers.
