Injuries Resulting from Falls from Heights

As an employee in a dangerous line of work, it is largely the duty of your employer to preserve your well-being by ensuring that the work space is as safe as possible. When proper safety procedures are not followed, workers can be seriously injured. Many construction site accidents resulting from falls from heights tend to cause serious physical injuries, including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Bruising and damage to internal organs
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Multiple fractures
  • Disfigurement
  • Death

Damages and Losses Associated with Serious Falls

Any one of these injuries could be enough to keep you out of work for life and stick you with hefty medical expenses for years to come. The serious injuries that can result from a hard fall can create the need for multiple surgeries, in-patient rehabilitation, long-term therapy, pain medication, and any other expenses associated with long-term care, which can be devastatingly costly in cases of serious brain damage.

The losses accompanied with serious construction site injuries are compounded by the losses associated with extended time spent away from work, especially if the injured person is never able to return to the job site. Falls from heights can result in years of unemployment, lost savings, lost inheritance for children, depleted retirement accounts, and inability to pay expenses such as auto loans, mortgages, etc. In short, the results of a fall can be devastating.
