How Common Are Workplace Should And Elbow Injuries?
Workplace injuries are remarkably common. The Bureau of Labor Statistics says that there were around 2.8 million workplace injuries or illnesses reported in the latest year. Those numbers have been fairly steady for a decade. One recent year showed that there were over 53,000 arm injuries and around 90,000 elbow injuries in a single year.
While should and elbow injuries are common in the workplace, they are not always easy to pinpoint on workplace causes.
What Are The Most Common Should And Elbow Injuries?
The reason these injuries can be hard to pinpoint on the workplace has to do with how many of them occur. You may have heard of athletes getting repetitive motions injuries of the shoulder and elbow. Workers get these repetitive stress injuries (RSIs) as well. Just because an injury happens over time does not mean a worker should struggle to receive compensation.
RSIs are caused by repeating the same motions over and over again over periods of time. Workers in many industries do this: factor and retail, mechanics, construction, etc. Some other common causes of these injuries include:
- Vehicle or heavy machinery accidents
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Overextension of joints
- Carrying too much weight
- Reaching father than necessary
How Will These Injuries Impact A Victim?
These injuries do not just impact your ability to earn an income. They affect your personal life as well. In some cases, minor shoulder and elbow injuries require only rest and a few days off. However, many of these injuries cannot be fixed without surgery and physical therapy. This can lead to long periods without any income and significant time away from the activities you enjoy in your life.
