Though it may seem to be a comparatively safe work environment as compared to a construction site or factory floor, an office can be deceptively dangerous. Office injuries may not appear to be severe, externally, but they can cause extreme physical discomfort and pain, depending on the type of injury sustained. Fortunately, most workers are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for job-related injuries. Acquiring these benefits can be difficult, but the assistance of an experienced workers’ compensation attorney can help to overcome these challenges.
If you or a coworker has been injured while working in an office, contact the Minnesota workers’ compensation lawyers of Robert Wilson & Associates today by calling (612) 334-3444 to discuss how we can help you receive the benefits you need.
Potential Office Injuries
There are many ways to be injured at work, even in a seemingly calm office environment. Some of the most common office injuries often involve:
- Repetitive motions
- Lifting heavy objects
- Equipment malfunctions
- Slips and falls
- Electrical shocks
- Falling objects
These injuries can cause serious harm and may leave a worker unable to return to his or her regular position for an extended period of time. Workers’ compensation benefits can help to remove the burden of related medical bills and to reduce the impact of wages lost due to occupational injury.
At Robert Wilson & Associates, our Minnesota workers’ compensation lawyers understand that securing benefits for your office injury can make a significant difference in the circumstances of you and your family. If you have been injured on the job, contact at (612) 334-3444.
