Work injuries affect families in many ways

If you or a loved one has suffered injuries on the job, the immediate repercussions may be obvious. For example, perhaps you have to miss work and deal with some loss of income for a while. When you are in pain and trying to get the facts straight, it is hard to think long term.

However, the injuries that you or someone you love sustain can affect your lives for years to come.

Activities with family members

Depending on the type of injury, you may no longer be able to, say, shoot basketball or go fishing with your spouse or children. This can strain your relationship with them, and you may see even less of your loved ones.

Even simple transportation tasks can become impossibly complicated. If you used to be the one to tote your kids to soccer practice, what happens when you are no longer able to? The kids may have to quit the team, and that can affect them emotionally and socially.

Plans for the future

Your plans for at least the next year or so are likely to change, although as with many things, this depends on the type of injury. Suppose it is a head injury, and you were taking college classes part time in hopes of attaining a degree. It would lead to you moving back to another part of the country to be with your aging parents. Now you may not be able to finish college, much less afford a move. Even a best-case scenario could mean delaying your graduation and move by a few months, which can make a big difference.

No matter your age, an injury on the job has the potential to affect your future. If you are nearing retirement, you may have to adjust your grand plans to travel the world with your spouse. If you are in your 20s and it is your first day on the job, your earning power for life might decrease. You may not be able to get married and afford children as soon as you thought you would be able to.
