What are the common causes of workplace injuries?

Workplace injuries are generally divided into two categories: injuries that occur due to a single, traumatic event and injuries that occur over an extended period of time. Both types of workplace injuries can be severe. In certain extreme cases, workplace injuries can even result in death, in which case your family may have grounds for death benefits and/or a wrongful death lawsuit in Colorado.

Some of the most common causes of workplace injuries that occur due to a single event include:

  • Fires
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Explosions
  • Electric shocks
  • Falls from a height
  • Unmarked hazards
  • Unsafe working conditions
  • Lifting

Some of the most common causes of workplace injuries that occur over an extended period of time include jobs that require workers to repeatedly perform the same takes. These jobs include:

  • Typing
  • Factory work
  • Cutting hair
  • Operating power tools

Other common cases of workplace injuries that occur over an extended period of time include:

  • Exposure to hazardous chemicals
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Operating heavy machinery
