The ripple effect of workplace injury

If you experience a workplace injury in Maryland, you and your family could suffer from its effects for years to come. The physical, emotional and financial repercussions could be staggering. Here at Wilson & Parlett, we understand the gravity of workplace injuries, and we seek to ease the burden of the recovery process.

Getting injured at work could have a tremendous effect on your finances. According to the Laborers' Health and Safety Fund of North America, suffering an injury, and thereby missing work in order to recover, could result in significant loss of your salary. In fact, many victims of workplace injuries make substantially less money even up to a decade after their accidents. Throughout the recovery process, you could already be losing money, since workers' compensation often only covers a portion of your earnings. You could end up paying for half of your total medical bills and related expenses out of your personal funds.

The emotional effects could follow you for the rest of your life. You could begin to battle depression or even post-traumatic stress after the incident occurs. These emotional battles could extend to your family as well. Dealing with a serious injury could put a strain on your relationships, as well as additional burdens on your loved ones as they try to compensate for your physical limitations. Surprisingly, in some cases, your family members could even end up facing injuries of their own. This could happen when they take on physical responsibilities, such as helping you move around the house, or shouldering household chores that you took responsibility for before your injury. More information about workplace injuries is available on our webpage.
