Common Injuries Suffered While on the Job

Injuries can occur in nearly any work environment, from inherently dangerous worksite such as construction sites to simple office environments. As long as the injury is debilitating and there is no fraud on the part of the employee, the employee is entitled to workers’ compensation. Nevertheless, many employees have difficulty obtaining the compensation to which they are legally entitled, in which case the New Jersey-Pennsylvania workers’ compensation attorneys of Wilhelm & Roemersma can intervene.

Regardless of the type of injury, if it has rendered an employee unable to perform his or her job, an attorney can help the injured worker obtain compensation for medical bills and other related expenses. Typical work injuries include:

  • Burns from chemicals or flames
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Bone breaks and fractures
  • Wrongful death

Whatever injury an employee has suffered, personal injury attorneys will work to show that the worker is deserving of compensation. The attorneys of Wilhelm & Roemersma will work with medical experts if necessary and use all of the resources at their disposal to perform a thorough investigation and reconstruction of the accident.

If a member of the family was killed in an on-the-job accident, an attorney can discuss the possibility of filing a wrongful death lawsuit on the victim’s behalf. The victim’s family may be entitled not only to current losses and expenses they are facing, but also to projectable future losses and expenses.
