Ohio's workplace injury rates

As someone who works in the construction industry or who has a spouse or other family member employed in a construction-related job, you know that these occupations can be dangerous. The Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation provides some insight into how prevalent an injury may be for people who work in construction or even in other fields. The 2016 Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses show that statewide, 3.2 out of every 100,000 employees identified as full time in the construction industry experienced either a work-related injury or illness. Across all industries, that number was also 3.2 out of every 100,000 employees.

Ohio residents know that vehicle accidents can be caused by drivers of any age for a variety of reasons. Elderly drivers, for example, may have difficulties seeing or responding quickly. Young drivers may be more apt to drive fast or otherwise dangerously in part due to their youth that may make them feel invincible and immortal. Unfortunately even though this may be understandable, it is nonetheless a serious problem that continues to leave too many innocent people injured or even dead.

This is particularly true when workers must rely upon scaffolding structures and work-related injuries, including those to the back, head and spinal cord, are still quite common.

Hit-and-run crash sends two to trauma center

Being hit by a reckless driver is certainly one of the last things people in Ohio ever expect or want to happen to them when they set out on their days. Being hit by a reckless driver who fails to even stop after causing an accident can only make matters worse. In some cases, people are fortunate that such errant drivers are eventually located by law enforcement officers so that some attempt at holding them accountable for their actions may remain.
