Office Workers and Clerical Staff- Denver Work Comp Lawyers

Office and Clerical Staff- Denver Workers Compensation Attorney- Burg Simpson

Working in an office doesn’t sound as dangerous as fighting a fire, treating emergency room patients, or working at a construction site, but office environments pose their own unique set of workplace hazards. In fact, the latest Bureau of Labor Statistics numbers reveal that about 76,000 office workers are seriously injured on the job every year. If you’re an office worker or a member of the clerical staff and you’ve been hurt at work, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits in Colorado. Call a Burg Simpson Colorado workers’ compensation attorney for help as soon as possible at 303-792-5595 or fill out a FREE CASE EVALUATION form here right now.

Clerical and office employees are typically classified as any anyone engaged exclusively in bookkeeping, record keeping, correspondence, data entry, technical drafting or other office work where books and records are kept. This classification applies only to employees who work in areas physically separated from other workplace operations. A clerical office normally excludes work or service areas and inventory storage.

Are you a member of the clerical staff who’s been hurt while on the job? Our workers’ comp attorneys understand Colorado’s complicated work’ comp laws. Don’t try and handle your case by yourself or wait before reaching out for help through this complex system. Call us today at 303-792-5595 for you free initial consultation.

Our experienced team of Colorado workers’ comp lawyers has handled dozens of office accidents and injury cases. Some of the most common accidents we’ve helped with include:

  • Falls: These are, by far, the most common accidents that office workers suffer, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Frustratingly, they’re also the easiest to prevent. The CDC reports that office workers are more than twice as likely to suffer a fall injury as non-office workers. Common causes include slipping on wet floors, reaching for an object from an unstable positon, tripping, and poor lighting.
  • Overexertion: Strain injuries can occur as a result of lifting and/or transporting heavy objects. Office workers, by the very nature of their work, are also susceptible to repetitive motion and pressure injuries.
  • Ergonomics: According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, conditions that can cause serious work-related musculoskeletal disorders include: repetitive movements that increase pressure on nerves and irritate tendons, awkward sitting positions, or neck strain from looking at improperly placed computer screens, and static postures with few breaks.
  • Workplace violence: Sadly, violence at work is more prevalent than ever. Homicide is the fourth-leading cause of workplace fatalities in the country.
  • Electricity: As advances in technology have modernized today’s office environments, electrical accidents – and injuries – have become increasingly more common, as well.
