Paula Robinson's Blog for Workers Compensation & Disability

Retail

Retail trade encompasses a wide variety of different businesses such as grocery stores, car dealers, furniture stores, malls, garden, and hardware stores, just to name a few.  If you find that you have been injured while working in the retail trade, contact Robinson Law for a free initial consultation.

Food Service

Food Service Workers routinely work with pots and pans, hot ovens, ranges and stoves, as well as oils and water.  All of these can cause burns, some serious enough to scar or cause loss of use of a limb.
Food Service Workers also frequently work with meat slicers and knives, and cuts can also lead to disabling injuries.
Robinson Law can advise as to whether you can obtain additional loss of use or scarring benefits at your free initial consultation.

Utilities

Utility workers, whether they be for electric power, phone, cable, etc…all too commonly suffer falls from vehicles and equipment on the job.  Fall injuries can occur when you slip, trip, jump, misstep, lose your balance or footing when getting into and out of vehicle cabs or loading and unloading materials from vehicle beds or other parts of a vehicle or equipment.  Injuries can also occur while climbing into or out of backhoes, bucket lifts, trucks or other equipment.
Overexertion injuries are common as well.  These types of injuries often involve pushing, pulling, lifting or carrying items such as wrenches, shovels, conductors, pipes and fittings, office equipment, or boxes and cartons.  
If you find that you or someone you care for has suffered such injuries, please contact Robinson Law for a free initial consultation.
