While any on-the-job injury is a stressful experience,
career-ending injuries are especially serious because of the lasting impact they can have on
your future. Many people associate a career-ending injury with a catastrophic
injury, though this isn’t necessarily true. A career can be ended
by a relatively minor injury, so long as the injured person will never
be able to return to their duties because of their injuries.
Catastrophic injuries can be career-ending, since often a severe and life-changing
injury like a TBI or the loss of a limb can greatly impair an injured
person. Minor injuries can also have just as considerable of an impact,
however. Considered someone who relies on typing or other repetitive motions
in their job duties, who sustains a repetitive stress injury or carpal
tunnel syndrome. They are unable to complete their work without pain,
which can be effectively the end of their career in their current occupation.
