Accidents can happen in any type of work atmosphere, whether you work in an office at a desk or on a construction crew. Workplace accidents can cause injuries that can prevent you from being able to perform your job tasks, or they can even more serious and cause accidental death. Some of the more common types of workplace injuries that we see come from construction accidents because of the nature of that type of job. But even in an office setting where you think no one could really get badly injured, we see slip and fall injuries and repetitive motion injuries that prevent people from being able to do their job and interrupt their quality of life as they once knew it. No matter how safe you try to be, sometimes accidents are unavoidable, especially if a careless coworker or faulty equipment causes them.
