Common Work Injuries


Every year, common work injuries prevent employees from clocking their normal hours. The U.S. Bureau of Labor reports that there are over a million work-related injuries or illnesses each year. That’s nearly one injury for every hundred full-time workers.

Common work injuries are most often due to overexertion or a slip and fall. These accidents are usually fairly mild, but the corresponding injuries can keep workers out of the workplace for days, weeks, or months. This has a negative impact on businesses, their employees, and their employees’ livelihoods.

What happens if I get into an accident in a company vehicle?


Companies that employ individuals in roles where they are required to drive on the job are legally bound to to carry insurance and offer certain employee benefits. If you happen to be driving on company time and are injured in a car accident, you can be eligible to receive benefits whether you are the driver at fault or not. If someone else was responsible for the car/truck/auto accident additional claims can be available. Under the legal doctrine of respondeat superior, employers are responsible for the actions of employees performed within the course of their employment.
