Ongoing hand or wrist injuries are not uncommon for individuals who work in the construction, manufacturing and healthcare services industries. After you undergo surgery, complications can ensue if it's not treated properly. While some complications are temporary, others can be major and permanent. This means that you may be in the hospital multiple times after your initial surgery to treat these complications which, in turn, will require hefty hospital bills and force you to miss work.

When seriously injured at work, it's highly recommended that you speak to a lawyer to discuss your case in order to find out if your unfortunate situation is eligible for workers' compensation benefits. In instances where you're injured at work due to the negligence of somebody other than your employer, you would have an additional option called a personal injury claim.

During a Learning Lab session at the 2018 National Safety Council Congress & Expo, The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) announced its list of the top ten violations for the fiscal year (October 1, 2017 through September 30, 2018). The list included both the violation regulation and the number of violations for all ten. These violations accounted for roughly 32,266 violations found by the federal agency, but do not account for those found by state enforcement agencies.

Industry Injuries: Risks in the Service Industry

If you or someone you know works in the service industry, the reality exists that restaurant employees are susceptible to on-the-job injuries every day they show up to work. When you eat out at a restaurant, a lot of work goes on behind the scenes in order to provide the best service possible before, during and after your meal. And, more often than not, it can put employees at risk for getting hurt.

Ongoing Complications of Back Surgery

Back pain is not an uncommon ailment, especially for individuals who work in the construction, manufacturing and healthcare service industries. It's also not uncommon to postpone or avoid surgery for back pain, but once your acute back pain becomes chronic and you've exhausted all management and treatment options, surgery may be the best choice for you.

Industry Injuries: Police and Correctional Officers

As we continue through our industry injury series, the importance of the roles police and correctional officers play in society shouldn't go unnoticed. Both industries place individuals in dangerous situations that pose high risks for getting hurt on the job. If you work in the police or correctional officer field and you sustain an injury, you may have costly medical expenses that leave you unable to return to work. In the event of a tragic death, family members are left behind to face the financial and emotional challenges.

In terms of workplace injuries, hand, wrist and finger incidents are three of the most common occurrences that can qualify for a workers' compensation case. We use our hands all the time, which leaves them easily susceptible to injuries that leave workers physically disabled and require medical attention. These injuries aren't only relative to one or two specific industries, either. They can happen to anyone, anywhere, anytime.  

Industry Injuries: Healthcare Services and Education

It may come as a surprise, but people who work in the education and healthcare service industries are still susceptible to on-the-job injuries. Sure, they might not be at as much of a risk for fatal or non-fatal injuries compared to those sustained by people in construction and manufacturing, but injuries can happen anywhere.
