Workers' Comp for Janitors & Custodians

Assistance from an Atlanta Workers' Compensation Lawyer

Janitorial and custodial jobs require a great amount of physical labor. This means that there are even more opportunities for individuals who work in these jobs to suffer from physical injuries.

A few examples of how a janitor or custodian might become injured on the job include:

  • Being hurt by a heavy falling object in a storage room
  • Straining his or her back while doing heavy lifting
  • Receiving a head injury or broken bone after falling off of a ladder

Janitor and cleaner jobs are considered to be one of the occupations with the highest rates for injuries resulting in days away from work. According to data from BLS, this occupation category was among only 7 occupations to have an incidence rate of more than 300 cases of this type of injury for every 10,000 full-time workers. (This data does not include maids and house cleaners.)

Two Common Reasons for Janitor Injury Claims

The most common reasons for injuries causing days away from work were:

  1. Overexertion and bodily reaction (33%)
  2. Falls, slips and trips (30%)

Of cases involving musculoskeletal disorders (or disorders involving injury to the joints or other tissues in the back or limbs), the janitors and cleaners sector was one of the six occupations that were most highly affected. If you have sustained a serious injury, be sure to consult with a skilled Atlanta workplace injury lawyer from our firm as soon as possible.

What to Do After Your Injury

Were you injured in a workplace accident? Whatever type of injury you suffered as a janitor or a custodian, the first thing you should do after receiving medical attention is to contact an experienced Atlanta workers' compensation attorney. A knowledgeable lawyer will be able to help you explore your options for receiving workers' compensation benefits, which give injured workers access to medical treatment and income while they are unable to work.
