Unfortunately for many, some careers have risks that end with people getting injured on the job. Some of the most dangerous jobs involve transportation, machinery, construction, and even sanitation. While a work-related injury could happen to anyone, it’s easier to see how a workplace with very dangerous work conditions can be held accountable if a worker has an accident while on the clock. Every employer has to have the necessary accommodations so that their employees feel safe and can do their jobs efficiently without worrying about being heavily injured.
Here is a list of some dangerous careers that could result in being injured on the job:
- Landscapers, lawn service workers, and groundskeepers
- Construction workers and extraction workers
- Structural iron and steel workers
- Ranchers and other agricultural workers
- Truck drivers
- Refuse and recyclable materials collectors
- Aircraft pilots and flight engineers
- Logging workers
At the end of the day, if you receive a specific injury or a series of small injuries that require medical care, or even if you receive an injury that developed over time, and it happened while you were on the clock at your place of work, you are most likely entitled to workers’ compensation. It might be a bit hard to tell at first, in which case you could call an Attorney for a consultation to see what your options are.
Gold Country Workers’ Comp Center is a law firm dedicated to helping their clients with disabilities and injuries, getting them the benefits they rightfully deserve. An attorney can give you adequate advice on how to move forward with your claim and even give you more legitimacy when dealing with an employer or agency that is still in the process of gaining their own evidence. It doesn’t cost you any more money up front the earlier you get an attorney involved, but not getting one early enough could cost you in your case.
The process of applying for Workers’ Compensation can seem complicated, and choosing an evaluating physician is a crucial step in the process. Our ability to be familiar with the evaluators is essential in obtaining a fair or even favorable evaluation since employers and their insurance companies will be working hard to save their own money at your expense.
