Though employers go to great lengths in order to make their workplace safe for employees, accidents can occur. These accidents, whether minor or serious, can leave workers injured, unable to work and with growing medical bills.

Falling objects: Even though hard hats and other pieces of equipment are designed to protect the head and other body parts, falling objects can cause serious injuries. The most common types of injuries suffered by falling objects are head injuries, but any type of injury can occur, depending on the object and the body part that was struck.
Falls from heights: Though proper safety measures may have been implemented, falls from heights still occur and result in severe injuries. Victims may fall from scaffolds, ladders and other elevated work surfaces, which are very dangerous for workers. Broken bones, spinal cord injuries, head injuries and other serious injuries sustained in a fall can be life-altering and life-threatening.
