Any workplace accident should be covered. This can even include injuries that occur while at an event like a company picnic or softball game, and workplace accidents that occur while the employee is on a break. However, there can be exceptions if the employee was intoxicated or engaged in misconduct. A Riverside lawyer can determine the best course of action following any type of injury that happens at work.
The following are examples of workplace accidents:
- Injuries caused by unsafe working conditions (e.g. operating dangerous machinery or lifting heavy objects can often result in serious injuries)
- Repetitive stress injuries (e.g. using a standard keyboard every day can result in conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome)
- Toxic substance exposure (e.g. mesothelioma caused by asbestos exposure)
- Slips and falls (e.g. tripping over boxes or another safety hazard, or slipping on wet grounds)
