On Behalf of | Jul 14, 2017 | Serious Personal Injury

Each day, workers across the country who are employed in diverse fields sustain an injury at work. Bickerton Law Group, LLLP understands the numerous struggles that injured employees frequently have to go through in Honolulu, and cities all over the state. As a result, we believe it is vital for workers who were hurt while performing their job duties to address the injury appropriately.

From ladder falls to electrocution and other types of construction accidents, people are very aware of some workplace hazards. However, even seemingly low-risk occupations, such as those which involve office work, can present dangers. Also known as repetitive strain, repetitive stress injuries can affect people who regularly have to type for work, but it can also affect those who bend over often or have to lift heavy objects on a regular basis.

Unfortunately, repetitive stress injuries can cause a great deal of pain. To make matters worse, these and other types of job injuries can also lead to financial problems brought on by an employee’s inability to work due to their condition. If you have sustained an injury that occurred because of repetitive motions at work, or for any other reason, and you are unable to perform your job responsibilities, you should look into all of your options at once.

In fact, you may be eligible to receive compensation, which helps injured workers move forward in many ways. Over on our page devoted to serious personal injury, you can read additional material that is related to work injuries and other matters.
