The 5 Most Dangerous Jobs Could Lead to a Brain Injury

Dedicated personal injury lawyers fighting for East Tennessee families

There are some Tennesseans that take their lives into their hands every day when they clock in to work. The work that they do must be done, but it carries with it a risk for severe injury if the proper safety precautions are not followed. Depending on the severity of the accident, a traumatic brain injury (“TBI”) can leave a worker unable to work and in need of almost continuous medical attention.

At the Rocky McElhaney Law Firm, we work with people every day who have suffered severe workplace injuries and they need our support to secure their best possible future. From our offices in Nashville, Hendersonville and Knoxville, we fight on behalf of TBI victims who were hurt doing dangerous jobs. We stop at nothing to get the compensation our clients have worked so hard for.

Dangerous jobs

Did you know that workplace accidents, second only to auto accidents, are one of the leading causes of traumatic brain injury? About 20 percent of work-related TBIs occur from falling down on uneven, wet surfaces. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the five most dangerous jobs in Tennessee that could lead to a brain injury are:

  1. Loggers
  2. Fishery workers
  3. Aircraft pilot
  4. Roofers
  5. Refuse & recycling collectors
