The Most Dangerous Jobs in America, 2016

workers compensationSome of the most dangerous jobs are the ones that our communities depend on the most. We are thankful to those who put their own safety at risk to help others. As we look ahead to Labor Day Weekend, we’re thinking of the laborers with the most dangerous jobs in the U.S.

Last month, CareerCast released the 2016 list of the most hazardous jobs in America.

Is your job in the top 10?

Top 10 Most Dangerous Jobs

  1. Construction Worker
  2. Correction Officer
  3. Emergency Medical Technician
  4. Farmer
  5. Firefighter
  6. Nursing Assistant
  7. Police Officer
  8. Taxi Driver
  9. Truck Driver
  10. Veterinarian

Not surprisingly, construction tops this year’s list again. In physically demanding industries like construction, injuries are not uncommon.

Similarly, careers involving driving are particularly risky. Car accidents are a leading cause of death for all motorists, and this is especially true for people whose jobs require that they spend a lot of time on the road. We have represented many truck drivers who were hurt or killed in collisions with other trucks.

In addition, some of the most dangerous jobs are the ones most vital to “maintaining and upholding the fabric of society.” In other words, they are the people our communities depend on the most. Police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians, and nursing assistants all face significant workplace hazards in order to take care of those in need.

When a laborer is hurt at work, whether it’s on a construction site, or on the road, or in an office building, workers’ compensation exists to ease the burden of medical costs and lost wages. If your workers’ comp claim is denied, you may need a lawyer to back you up. We offer free consultations, and we do not charge a fee unless we recover your benefits.
