Common Types of On-the-Job Injuries

Listed below are some of the more common on the job accidents that could entitle you to Texas workers’ compensation benefits or other compensation:

  • Overexertion, which includes injuries related to lifting, pushing, pulling, holding, carrying and throwing. It is consistently the top cause of workplace injuries.
  • Falls are another leading cause of workplace injuries. They accounted for more than 25 percent of all workers’ compensation payments in Liberty Mutual’s 2010 Workplace Safety Index.
  • Being struck by an object, which includes injuries caused by objects dropping from above or swinging through the air.
  • Psychological problems brought on by exceptionally stressful and unusual workplace events can support a claim for workers’ comp benefits under certain circumstances.
  • Bodily reaction injuries happen when someone gets hurt without making contact with anything else. Some examples include injuries caused by bending, climbing, reaching, standing, sitting or slipping or tripping without falling.
  • Auto accidents were one of the top 10 sources of workplace injuries in 2010 and are the leading cause of workplace fatalities, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
  • Getting caught in or compressed by something, a type of injury that typically happens when a worker gets caught in a piece of equipment or a heavy object crushes someone.
  • Striking an object, which occurs when someone accidentally runs into something solid, like a door, wall, furniture or a piece of equipment.
  • Violence, while rare, does happen at Texas workplaces from time to time.
