A workplace accident can occur anywhere. Some injuries happen in an instant, such as a fall on a slippery surface or a power tool injury. Other workplace injuries are caused over the course of a career due to long-term and repetitive tasks.
The most common workplace accidents include:
- Motor vehicle crashes: Many Americans work at jobs where they must drive on a regular basis, whether in the course of picking up or delivering goods, performing services at offsite locations or traveling from one work location to another. Auto accidents can cause catastrophic trauma such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage and internal bleeding.
