Health Care Workers Susceptible To Many Injuries

An estimated 18 million people work in the U.S. health care industry. Every day, health care workers help save lives. They may treat patients for illnesses, help them recuperate through therapy, provide emotional support and the nutrition they need.

Some public benefits can affect amount of SSD benefits

If you've been inflicted with an unexpected and serious illness, or suffered a significant and disabling injury, then you may qualify for Social Security disability benefits. The compensation recovered through this program can be of tremendous importance, as you may be unable to work, which means you could become dependent on SSD benefits to keep a roof over your head and put food on the table. While improved health and the ability to reenter the workforce may lead to a reduction or cessation of your SSD benefits, receiving other forms of public assistance may have a similar affect.

Repetitive motion injuries may qualify for workers' comp.

A lot of workplace injuries occur in accidents, whether foreseen or not. A construction worker can fall from scaffolding, be hit by a moving car, or be pinched by heavy machinery. Each of these instances can leave a worker seriously injured. Yet, it doesn't take a freak accident to cause harm to an individual in the workplace. Instead, oftentimes workers are hurt merely by carrying out their day-to-day duties.
