In 2019, there were 2.8 million workplace injuries or illnesses in the United States, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) revealed new insights that state that many workplace injuries may go unreported. Our Texas workplace injury attorneys explain why possibly more than half of the workplace injuries may go unreported in the U.S.

Why Many Injuries Go Unreported

While the number of injuries reported is already high, OSHA believes that the actual number of workplace injuries may be much higher. OSHA has been implementing new reporting methods to make their research is as accurate as possible by increasing personnel and facilities across the country. However, OSHA does heavily rely on companies to report injuries.

Lack of reporting due to employers trying to hide unsafe practices has become a major factor in unreported injuries. There are many employers who have deliberately disobeyed safety standards and have hidden injury reports to protect their bottom line. Reporting injuries can ultimately lead them to make major repairs to their workplace to ensure its safety to employees.

What Should I Do If I Suffer a Workplace Injury?

The time after a workplace accident can be overwhelming – especially if you believe that your employer doesn’t have your best interests at heart. If you believe that your employer is trying to cover up your injury, you have rights that protect you. It is vital that you seek guidance from an experienced attorney right away.
