Injuries From Falls Can Greatly Impact Workers

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 600 workers die and over 200,000 are seriously injured in falls involving work equipment each year. A fall can affect every aspect of your life, from your physical and mental health to your ability to provide for your family. Our attorneys at Belsky Weinberg & Horowitz, LLC, understand that your needs and situation are unique, and we can assist you in filing any claims or lawsuits that are necessary to get you compensation for your injury.

Workers Who Are At Risk

If you work in the construction industry, you should be aware that it has the highest rate of falls when compared to other sectors. This should not be surprising, since many construction tasks require working above ground level. However, other types of workers are not immune and if you are employed in industries such as mining, maintenance and retail, you are also in danger of sustaining injury from a fall.

Injuries Associated With Falls

The most common types of injuries that are associated with falls include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Head trauma and brain injuries
  • Neck and back injuries

A work injury resulting from a fall can be serious. It can lead to lifelong pain and suffering, the inability to return to work, lost income, and the need for additional surgeries and medical care. Additionally, it can place a financial strain on you and your family.
