White collar workers — typically, people who
work in an office at a desk job — are not usually subjected to dangerous
work environments. However, the lack of risk does not mean that an office
worker cannot sustain injury throughout the course of his or her
employment. Whether you have sustained a repetitive stress injury, such as
carpal tunnel, or were injured in a slip-and-fall accident at work, turn
to the Barnett Law Firm for help. We provide skilled legal guidance
throughout the process of obtaining workers’ compensation benefits.
Repetitive Stress Injuries
As an office worker, you most likely spend
substantial time at your computer. Whether you are performing clerical
tasks, data entry or any other job that requires you to type, you can be
put at risk for repetitive stress injuries. Carpal tunnel is the most
common of these injuries. Carpal tunnel can be treated and managed to a
degree. Over time, however, without medical attention, it can cause
permanent damage. It is wise to seek help from a doctor to learn your
options in obtaining compensation.
Slip-and-Fall Injuries at Work
Slip-and-fall injuries can also occur while
working in an office. Slip-and-fall injuries can be caused by wet floors,
poorly maintained stairways, loose handrails, loose carpeting and other
dangerous conditions. If you sustained a slip-and-fall accident at work,
talk to our Georgia law firm about your options.
