Tacoma Workplace Injuries Lawyer

Representing Workers in the Counties of Pierce, Kitsap, Thurston & King

While you can suffer an injury in any working environment, many jobs are more physically demanding, putting continued and repeated strain on certain body parts. Furthermore, specific work environments are inherently more dangerous than others, such as construction sites, putting workers at higher risk of injury. 

Fortunately, workers’ compensation has been enacted to provide Washington state workers with medical, wage, and other benefits in the unfortunate event of a workplace injury. 

At McCarthy Law Office, PLLC, we focus much of our practice on helping workers get the benefits they deserve when such injuries have disrupted their lives. With nearly two decades of professional experience, our attorney puts genuine care, skill, and determination to work for you in such situations.

Workplace Injuries in Washington State

In Washington State, workers' compensation is designed to protect employees who suffer injuries or illnesses due to their jobs. 

As mentioned above, some jobs carry a higher risk of injury, whether from the nature of the work or the work environment. 

Workers who tend to suffer on-the-job injuries more than others include construction workers, industrial or warehousing workers, factory workers, dock workers, auto mechanics, waiters and waitresses, delivery workers, hospital workers, and anyone engaged in continuous repetitive motions that strain specific body parts. 

The breadth of these injuries can be wide-ranging, affecting virtually all systems and functions of the human body.

work injuries can include but are not limited to:

  • Back injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Head injuries, including concussions and brain injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Musculoskeletal disorders, such as in muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and discs
  • Respiratory diseases due to exposure to harmful substances
  • Hearing loss

Work-related illnesses can also occur due to high-stress jobs or environments, such as those with extended workloads, long hours, and intense pressure. These can lead to such illnesses as heart disease, high blood pressure, and mental health disorders.

Certain occupations can also result in skin diseases from exposure to chemicals, sun, or even due to regular contact with water. Workers in healthcare, cleaning, catering, and beauty are often exposed to these risks.

According to the National Safety Council, common on-the-job accidents that can result in work-related injuries include slip and fall incidents, falls from heights, being caught between machinery or moving objects, and being struck by falling objects. Repetitive motion is a primary source of injury, which can result in such conditions as carpal tunnel and deterioration of knees, hips, and backs.
