What are the Leading Causes of Workplace Injuries

Michigan Workers Compensation Lawyers

Workplace injuries are a common occurrence and effect thousands of workers in the United States every year. In fact, 591,000 workers sustained a workplace injury in 2011 and 2012. The Michigan worker’s compensation system is in place to help workers while on the job. Although the system is slanted to protect employers, injured workers are entitled to benefits including the payment of medical expenses and wage loss.

I found this interesting graphic and wanted to share it. It describes some pretty amazing statistics. For example, who knew that being an airplane pilot was still so dangerous. Or that a full 36% of all work place injuries involve the back.
