Common Causes of Logging Injuries
While the nature of logging alone increase a worker’s risk for injury, the fact that the work takes place in areas isolated from medical centers and difficult for emergency responders to access can make even minor injuries more severe. For this reason, people who sustain all types of injury while logging may need to file a workers’ compensation claim to cover medical costs and lost wages during recovery.
