What are common causes of workplace accidents in Pennsylvania?

Workplace accidents can happen for any number of reasons. Some of the most common causes of workplace accidents in Pennsylvania include:

  • Operator error - Workers who make mistakes may put themselves and others at risk of serious injury or worse.
  • Untrained workers - A lack of employee training often results in serious accidents at work.
  • Unsafe working conditions - Employers must keep working conditions safe.
  • Unmarked hazards - Objects on the floor, in hallways or parking lots can be dangerous.
  • Defective equipment - Routine maintenance and repairs prevent serious accidents.
  • Fatigue - Tired workers routinely cause serious workplace accidents.
  • Repetitive motion - Carpal tunnel syndrome and repetitive trauma can be debilitating.

Some on-the-job injuries can be treated in a few days or weeks. But many job environments lead to long-term workplace illnesses. With so much at stake, it's critical that you have an experienced attorney on your side, fighting for your rights, every step of the way.
