Common Work Injuries

If you are injured at work, the first step is to file an incident report.

Because these injuries happened on the job, you are entitled to compensation for wage loss and rehabilitation. In order to make sure that you are compensated for your injury, call Franks & Rechenberg, P.C.  David N. Rechenberg has guided people through the worker’s compensation system for 18 years. We can assist you in getting a just settlement or award.

Common workplace injuries include:

  • Total knee replacement/ knee arthoplasty
  • Total hip replacement
  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Sudden incident/ sudden injuries
    • Single incident or sudden injuries are what most people think of when talking about worker’s comp issues. For example, a UPS driver lifts a heavy box and pulls a muscle in his back, or someone slips and falls on a slippery floor and lands on their shoulder. Single incident or sudden injuries such as these may be compensable by worker’s comp.
  • Repetitive stress injuries
    • These injuries can be the same as the single incident injuries. Only the cause is different. Instead of a single incident, injuries can result from years of repetitive stress.
