GENERAL CATEGORIES OF WORKPLACE INJURIES

Acute Injuries
These types of workplace injuries are highly common. Examples are broken bones, lacerations, burns, an injured knee as a result of a slip and fall, or an injured back from lifting a heavy object.

Gradual Injuries
These types of workplace injuries generally accrue over time. Examples might be stress on your back caused by repetitive heavy lifting, or perhaps carpal tunnel syndrome caused by repetitive hand/wrist movements. Occupational diseases are also considered gradual injuries, such as one caused by inhalation of asbestos, mold, or chemicals.

Aggravation Injuries
It is common for employees with pre-existing medical conditions to suffer an aggravation of their condition due to a work accident or work activities.

Death by Accident
Sadly, there are numerous work-related deaths reported annually throughout Tennessee.
