At Matt Fendon Law Group, we encourage workers in Arizona to be vigilant and to prioritize safety. This is especially the case for workers who have built careers in fields that are often considered dangerous, such as construction workers, truck drivers and factory workers.
Getting injured at work can be difficult. You need to understand your rights and whether you can file a workers' compensation claim. Knowing what will happen can help to put your mind at ease and make the aftermath of the injury less stressful. In most cases, you will have the ability to file a workers' compensation claim.
Arizona construction workers have a lot of different factors at play when it comes to their overall safety on the job. Unfortunately, adding scaffolding to the mix can increase the risks these workers may face.
Repetitive motion injuries are a result of cumulative trauma caused by putting a repeated strain on certain tendons, muscles or bones. Arizona workers who suffer from this condition also called cumulative trauma disorders, regional musculoskeletal disorder and occupational overuse syndrome might be eligible for workers’ compensation if it occurs as a result of performing their duties at work.
Arizona workers like you often have to face different types of workplace dangers. The possibility for injury can exist in any profession, no matter how risky it outwardly seems. As someone in the medical or health field, however, you face a unique issue: sharps injuries.
