Personal injuries are no laughing matter, and they can negatively affect your life in a variety of ways. First and foremost, the pain and suffering associated with a personal injury can be agonizing, and you may suffer chronic pain and disability for years as a result of your injury. Some injuries cause emotional strain, stress, anxiety, and depression.
The passing of a loved one can create an extremely distressing period of time for the family of the deceased, especially when the loss is due to someone’s negligence or carelessness. The last thing you want is a financial burden on top of your emotional stress. Medical expenses, funeral costs, and lost income can create an extremely unfavorable financial situation, but you are likely entitled to compensation to help offset these costs.
Work in and of itself can be challenging, especially if you work a job that is very physically demanding. Welders and construction workers are constantly in hazardous environments, but they are not the only laborers susceptible to work related injuries. Engineers, heavy equipment operators, machinists, and many other types of workers are exposed to conditions that can have serious adverse health consequences on a regular basis.
