All occupations pose a certain degree of risk – even desk jobs – and being injured on the job can have a significant, even catastrophic, effect on your livelihood and your life. There are four occupations, however, that consistently rank among the most hazardous. Construction workers, police officers, firefighters, and pilots beware!
Due to the heavy equipment, the heavy lifting, and all the moving parts involved, construction work is obviously fraught with danger. Injured construction workers often bring workers compensation or personal injury claims for accidents related to unsafe working conditions and inadequate safety precautions.
Police officers put their lives on the line whenever they’re on the job, and it’s a dangerous job. This danger stems not only form accidental injuries but also from injuries that are inflicted intentionally.
Firefighters also risk life and limb on the job, and their work is obviously fraught with danger – they are fighting fires after all. Their work includes entering burning buildings, and the danger of such an activity is difficult to overestimate.
Though you’ve undoubtedly heard it before, air travel remains one of the safest means of travel. The work of a pilot is, nevertheless, dangerous. Pilots are responsible not only for their own lives but also for those of their passengers, and making a bad decision as a pilot can lead to catastrophic results.
Workers Compensation and Personal Injury Claims
While these four occupations are clearly very dangerous, any job can result in injury. If you or someone you care about has been injured on the job, you need a skilled personal injury attorney who’s experienced with workers compensation claims. Such claims are often extremely complicated and should never be left to chance. If your job left you injured, you deserve adequate compensation.
