Ordinary accidents—from falls to car accidents—can reduce a person's capabilities.
Car accidents alone, for instance, are a significant factor. Each year in the U.S., there are about 6 million car accidents. Of those, 2 million drivers will experience permanent injuries as a result.
Other types of injuries such as tripping, spraining an ankle, or being injured by a falling object are in fact very common.
There are a slew of workplace injuries, from violence between employees to strained muscles that can reduce mobility over time. Depending on the circumstances from the injury, an employee may or may not be eligible for workers' compensation.
Victims of accidents may see reduced mobility and a need for extra help for things they once did on their own.
