Wyoming Workers' Compensation

Office Workers and Clerical Staff – Workers’ Compensation Attorneys – Wyoming

Clerical Staff – Workers Compensation Lawyers - Wyoming Burg SimpsonPrivate industry employers reported nearly 3 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses in 2016, according to the latest data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. That translates into nearly three injuries for every 100 full-time employees and represents a significant drop from the year before. Additionally, only about a third of those injuries translated into time missed from work. If you have had to miss work because of an injury at the office, you may be able to file a workers’ compensation lawsuit.

A wide range of professions are frequently classified as office and clerical workers, such as bookkeepers, customer service personnel, receptionists, and other administrative personnel. If you are an office worker who has suffered a workplace injury, get the legal assistance you need. Call the Cody, Wyoming office of Burg Simpson at 307-527-7891 or fill out our Free Case Evaluation form.

Our experienced team of Wyoming workers' compensation lawyers has handled dozens of office accidents and injury cases. Some of the most common accidents we have helped with include:

  • Falls: If an office worker gets hurt at work, it was most likely because of a fall. Office workers are more than twice as likely to suffer an injury from a fall as non-office workers. The most frequent reasons include slipping on wet floors, reaching for an object from an unstable position (such as an office chair), tripping over poorly maintained flooring, and poor lighting and/or visibility.
  • Overexertion: Strain injuries often happen because of office workers lifting or moving heavy boxes. Office workers are also particularly vulnerable to repetitive motion 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, and neck strain from looking at computer screens placed too high or too low. Office workers who sit in the same position for extended periods without breaks also risk musculoskeletal injuries. These make up roughly a third of all worker injuries and make up $15 billion in worker’s compensation costs annually.
  • Workplace violence: Violence has been increasingly creeping into the workplace for years now and homicide is now the fourth-leading cause of workplace fatalities in the United States.

If you have been injured at your office – or lost a family member to an unthinkable act of workplace violence – do not wait to contact one of the workers' compensation lawyers at Burg Simpson Wyoming so we can help. Call us at 307-527-7891.
