The lingering effects of cumulative injuries
While some workplace injuries are due to singular accidents, some are the result of a series of events that lead to injury. These types of injuries are often known as cumulative injuries and are protected under workers' compensation laws.
The type of injuries that typically occur are hearing loss, toxic chemical injuries, and trauma. Because these injuries develop over time, they are often not noticed until they are severe.
