One of the most common types of workplace injuries, and workers’ comp claims are due to cuts, lacerations or punctures.

Depending on the nature of the incident, these injuries can be relatively minor (cutting your finger with scissors) to much more serious (getting hit with a nail gun or breaking a pane of glass and falling onto the shards).

Since there are so many different ways to cut or puncture yourself, this is an injury type that can occur in a wide variety of professions and workplaces.
