Manual workers employed by manufacturers, municipalities, distributors, retailers and others may take care to avoid common injuries associated with hard, physical labor, like:
- Crushing injuries
- Slips and falls
- On-the-job motor vehicle accidents
- Back and spine injuries
These and other injuries are serious, and medical and legal help are likely needed. Common and often overlooked injuries that can occur during the performance of manual labor, though, are heart attacks and hypertension injuries. For example, employers can negligently allow manual laborers to overwork. If physical overexertion results in a heart attack, the employers may be liable for resulting injuries.
