Carlisle Work Injury Lawyers
Tens of Millions Won for Pennsylvania Accident Victims Since 1922
Workers across the United States are injured in work-related accidents. Because work injuries impact a person’s livelihood and their financial security, both workers and their families suffer the consequences of workplace injuries. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, over 2 million workplace accidents were reported in 2017, and over 5,000 of those workers died on the job. In many cases, work-related injuries don’t result from one single accident, but from small injuries that compounded over years. Workers who have sustained injuries on the job, whatever the cause, have the right to seek compensation.
Attorneys at Handler, Henning & Rosenberg fight for the rights of employees who have lost their wages, earning ability, and financial stability due to injuries sustained on the job. It is an employer’s duty to establish a safe work environment for workers and take responsibility for the damages their workers suffer at work. For over 95 years, our Carlisle worker injury attorneys have held employers and companies responsible for failing to provide their workers with a safe work environment.

Most Common Work Injuries in the United States
According to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), over 2 million workers get hurt by their jobs every year. Some work injuries are more severe than others, but regardless of the severity, employers are responsible for compensating workers who have been hurt by unsafe environments, poorly-trained workers, or even no-fault accidents.
The most common types of injuries caused on the job include:
- Acoustic trauma
- Back injuries
- Brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Loss of limb
- Loss of vision
- Repetitive motion injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
What Causes Injuries at Work?
Work injuries occur for a variety of reasons, but one of the most common reasons is employer negligence. When employers fail to provide workers with safety training or enforce safety regulations, they put workers at risk for serious injuries. While workers are prone to blaming themselves for their injuries, in many cases their injuries occurred because employers failed to follow safety regulations without the workers’ knowledge. If you suffered an injury at work, a Carlisle work injury attorney will be able to investigate your case to determine who was at fault for your accident. Even if you believe you were partially at fault, you have nothing to lose by speaking with an attorney. Your case may have underlying factors that your lawyer is familiar with and can investigate further.
The negligence that leads to work injuries can take many forms including:
- Equipment failures
- Falling objects and flying debris
- Slip and falls
- Improper maintenance
- Failure to comply with safety regulations
- Inadequate inspections
- Insufficient training
