Contact an attorney if you need help with workers' comp cases, as they often overlap with the fields of Personal Injury and Wrongful Death and involve the study, prevention, and payment of compensation for workplace injuries or illness.

Most industrial injuries generally fall into three categories:
  • repetitive injuries caused by ergonomic hazards;
  • chemical hazards; and,
  • physical hazards.

However, in some extreme cases, when the injury stems from the employer's actions, the injured worker may be able to instead pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the employer, or in cases of wrongful death, a wrongful death suit may be filed.
