Overuse injuries typically occur when a person's job consists of carrying, pushing, pulling, or throwing any object. These injuries usually consist of pulled muscles or tendons and strained or sprained ligaments.
Being hit by objects falling off shelves, dropped by a co-worker, falling debris, or falling from an elevated area occur on a regular basis and may be the cause of serious injury. These accidents typically occur due to someone's negligence.
