Whether you are work in a hair salon or on a construction site, you could be at risk of suffering a work-related injury. The injuries that you suffer as a result of a workplace accident can cause serious repercussions. You may not be able to work while you are recovering, or the injuries may be so severe that you may never be able to return to work.
