Big airports are busy, bustling hubs of transportation that require a myriad of workers inside, outside, and of course, in the air to keep them running smoothly. Often operating around the clock in all types of weather conditions, airports can be a high-risk workplace. Accidents can happen in the terminal, on the apron, and in the air causing injuries from sprains and strains to more serious head and neck injuries and even death.
Some of the workers at risk for injury include the following:
All employees injured at work should see a medical professional immediately and report the injury to their employer. Treatment like an operation, physical therapy, and/or psychological therapy might be needed before returning to work.
Almost all workers who suffer a work-related injury are eligible for Workers’ Compensation benefits, which should help cover medical expenses including medications, hospital stays, and wages lost while they are unable to work. A qualified Workers’ Compensation attorney who has experience helping injured workers can ensure that injured workers see a doctor of their choosing and receive benefits until they have recovered from their injury.
