Two workers were injured from a rooftop fall in Edgewood, MD on Thursday, July 22nd, 2021. One of the workers had to be flown by helicopter to the hospital and the other worker had an evaluation by paramedics at the scene. The extent of the severity of the injuries was not revealed. Injuries unfortunately happen each day to many different people and these workers were impacted on this particular day. The article didn’t state if whether was at play for the accident or if there was another cause. However, when workers are working in a dangerous environment they should always wear protective gear and take all of the necessary precautions to avoid an outcome like this one.
Accidents happen everywhere and to everyone. They happen from many different causes under different circumstances. While it wasn’t stated in the article if the workers were doing work on the roof without proper safety equipment, if they were then they put themselves at grave risk of a serious injury. Having to be flown to the hospital by a medical helicopter shows that the injury may have been serious in this case. A traumatic brain injury or neck injury may have occurred which can change someone’s life forever. Many people who have fallen from roofs or from great heights have had their legs broken, become paralyzed, had a serious neck injury, or even had injuries to their brain or spine.
Receiving Treatment for an Injury
Treatment for injuries may be advised differently by different medical professionals. However, one of the most common and effective treatments is physical therapy. Physical therapy treats numerous injuries and helps patients restore function and strength in injured areas of the body. For the workers in this accident, physical therapy may be the only way for them to properly recover from an injury to their arms, legs, shoulders, knees, and other parts of the body. Physical therapy will have patients do a series of exercises to restore strength and form to an area of the body that has been hindered by an injury. Stretches are also generally used to stretch out areas around the injury.
