West Virginia Work Injury Attorneys

Devoted to Injured Clients

According to the National Safety Council, every 7 seconds, a worker is injured on the job. When you do the calculations, that adds up to more than 4.6 million workplace injuries a year.

It’s common to get into an accident at work, especially if your line of work involves hazardous conditions, such as construction work, where workers are often falling or getting injured by debris or other objects.

If you need help filing a personal injury claim, our West Virginia work injury attorneys can assist you. Persinger & Persinger, L.C. has years of experience in helping injured clients recover with the support of compensation and can help you, too.

What to Do If You're Injured at Work

When you've been injured at work, you may feel flustered, stressed, and unsure of what steps to take. It's important first and foremost that you seek medical attention.

While receiving treatment, you may want to collect a doctor's documentation of your injuries, and then notify your employer of your injuries as soon as possible. By reporting your injury as soon as possible and having the documentation you need to show that you were injured at work, the sooner you can file for workers' compensation.

What Are the Common Types of Workplace Injuries?

The top three workplace injuries that often result in losing days from work to recover include:

  • Overexertion
  • Contact with objects and equipment
  • Slip and falls

Many individuals overexert their bodies if their jobs involve constant lifting and lowering, and repetitive motions. Contact through objects can occur by being hit in the head or body by flying objects or faulty machinery, and slip and falls occur generally from falling from ladders or platforms. These types of accidents explain why many workers’ injury cases involve construction workers.
