    What are the Most Injury-Prone Industries in America?

    Last updated 5 years ago

    Across the United States, over three million workers are injured on the job every year. Some of these accidents result from third-party liability. If your employer was negligent or otherwise responsible for your accident, you may have a legal claim against the company in a court of law. Here is a look at the most injury-prone industries in America:

    Transportation and Shipping

    Any industry in which employees are subjected to poor road conditions, bad weather, and other drivers’ negligence will have a high incidence of injury. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, of the three million workers injured on the job in 2011, over 2.1 million were working in the service industry, such as transporting goods. Every year, over 250,000 auto accidents involve large trucks.

    Manufacturing

    Jobs involving manual labor and large machinery can be dangerous. For every 100 individuals who work in manufacturing, 4.4 are injured in on-the-job accidents every single year. The rate of injury and the total number of fatal accidents for the manufacturing sector has been decreasing during the last decade, but the manufacturing industry is still one of the most injury-prone sectors of the U.S. labor market.

    Healthcare

    Doctors in white lab coats may not bring to mind on-the-job injuries, but the healthcare profession can be very strenuous. Manufacturing has twice as many fatalities as the healthcare sector, but healthcare has one of the highest rates for annual on-the-job accidents. For every 100 healthcare employees, five are injured every year due to work-related incidents.

    If you suffered on-the-job injuries, a lawyer can help. An attorney can work with your employer and help you navigate the workers’ compensation system to ensure that you receive appropriate compensation for your pain and suffering. The Carlson Law Firm has years of experience advocating for workers throughout Texas. Reach our office today by calling (888) 335-7492.
