Workplace injuries are not uncommon. However, many people are not sure where to turn when they get injured at work. All work injuries should be covered by workers’ compensation insurance. However, we know that is not always the case. At JML Law, our Santa Ana workplace injury attorneys are going to be by your side. When we take your case, you can count on a thorough investigation into the cause of your work injury. Our goal is to secure the compensation you need for all injury-related expenses.
What Are Some Of The Common Santa Ana Workplace Injuries?
When you think about workplace injuries, you probably think about traumatic injuries. It is true that many of the common cases our Santa Ana workplace injury attorney handle revolve around:
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Broken or Dislocated Bones
- Severe lacerations or amputations
However, we also want to point out that there are other types of workplace injuries and illnesses that are just as detrimental but not as easily visible. These include:
- Hearing and Vision Loss
- Respiratory Problems or other chronic illnesses
- Repetitive stress injuries
These injuries take longer to develop and can be harder to pinpoint on a workplace cause. However, they should still be covered by workers’ compensation insurance. Because of the length of time it can take from exposure to illness discovery, it may be necessary to secure an attorney to pursue a personal injury case.
What Are The Common Causes Of Workplace Injuries?
Some of the common causes of workplace injuries include:
- Slips, trip, and falls
- Vehicle accidents
- Getting caught in between objects

Most workplace injuries and illnesses are preventable. It is important that employers take steps to keep all employees safe. This includes ensuring that all workers are adequately trained and that they have all the necessary equipment.
