- Permanent disability: It is the most expensive injury. Somebody can become paralyzed or suffers from permanent brain damage from many causes
- Amputations: These are the most common, expensive injuries. According to OSHA, these injuries commonly occur when workers operate unguarded machines, equipment, and power tools. Another common cause is when a body part gets pinned between two items.
