Serious Workplace Injuries
Let An Experienced Columbus Workplace Injury Lawyer Protect Your Rights
Many types of serious workplace injuries require immediate medical care, if not an ambulance and hospitalization. U.S. Department of Labor data shows that workplace falls are the most common reason for at-work injuries and job fatalities. Also, injured backs are one of the more common workplace injuries.
The following are some common serious workplace injuries in Ohio:
- Back and neck injuries
- Knee injuries
- Shoulder injuries
- Injuries affecting vision or hearing
- Repetitive motion injuries (carpal tunnel syndrome)
- Work-induced heart attacks
- Exposure to toxic substances such as asbestos
- Loss of limbs
If you are injured at work, it's important that your workplace injury be diagnosed and treated appropriately, whether it is caused by a single incident, such as an electrocution injury or a slip and fall accident, or is the result of a repetitive stress injury or prolonged exposure to a hazard, such as asbestos.

- Medical bills
- Lost income due to inability to work
