Such accidents cost Americans dearly, especially when workers toil in the construction and industrial arenas. Their injuries may be due to many different types of equipment malfunctions or other safety failures. Workplace injuries can include amputations, TBI, or traumatic brain injury, as well as spinal cord injury, which can result in paralysis. Workers also can suffer crushed or mangled limbs and extremities, as well as broken bones throughout their body. Such serious and costly cases should merit a firm response on workers’ behalf.
