Business Professional Injury Attorney
Business professionals deserve workers’ compensation benefits after being hurt on-the-job just like any other professional. Even though the average office worker or business professional spends most of their day seated at a desk in an air conditioned room, they may still encounter workplace hazards that can cause them to suffer an injury. If you were hurt while on-the-clock as a business professional and cannot return immediately to your job duties, then you can come to Brooks Law to help you seek workers’ compensation benefits.
Throughout our years of legal experience, we have spoken with many business professionals who struggled to get workers’ compensation on their own. Employers and insurance companies are sometimes skeptical of an officer workers’ injury claim, believing they should not or could not be hurt in a controlled office environment. With our assistance and knowledgeability, we can equip you to file or appeal your claim with confidence, striving to achieve a maximized compensation amount on your behalf.

Injuries Commonly Suffered By Business Professionals
What sort of workplace dangers are there in the average office place or professional work environment? With only a quick review of the potential hazards, or your own company’s accident history, you might be surprised at what you uncover.
A business professional could potentially get hurt due to:
- Faulty wiring or electrical equipment
- Uplifted carpeting or slick tile flooring
- Car accident while riding in a company vehicle
- Back injury while lifting heavy items, like a case of paper
Repetitive stress injuries (RSI) are actually the most likely reason a business professional will become injured at work. As the name implies, an RSI occurs when someone does the same action again and again across an extended period of time. Office workers can experience an RSI from sitting in a non-ergonomic chair for many hours in a row and five days a week, or they may develop carpal tunnel or arthritis from typing on a keyboard day-in and day-out. Business professionals can also suffer significant eyestrain or migraines from staring a computer monitor for 40+ hours a week. All of these RSIs may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits if they develop into a problem that inhibits work or causes consistent discomfort.
