Industrial Workers' Injuries Archives

Maryland bill on garbage-worker safety on governor’s desk

At our law firm, we represent employees who have been injured on the job. We help them in their application for workers’ compensation benefits, which are available regardless of who was at fault for the injury. We also conduct a thorough investigation of the circumstances surrounding the work injury to determine whether any third parties may be liable for our client’s harm and if so, may advise him or her about the possibility of filing a personal injury lawsuit. 

Back injuries and the injured worker

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) states that more than 20 percent of illnesses and injuries in the workplace are due to back injuries. That amounts to more than 1 million employees. The most common problem is a pulled or strained muscle. Unfortunately, once the muscles, tendons or ligaments are damaged, it becomes easier to reinjure the back.

What is an injury and illness prevention program?

Workplaces that use injury and illness prevention programs help keep employees safe. These programs are processes during which employers locate and eliminate hazards before others have the chance to suffer injuries. While many workplaces have these programs, not all do. Those who do report seeing better production in the workplace, higher quality results and reduced costs. Employees are also happier in safe environments.

Industrial accidents and workers’ compensation benefits

As an industrial worker, you know that your job can be dangerous from time to time. Even if you do your best to avoid an accident that could cause injury, this could still happen at some point in the future.

Industrial Accidents: Defective equipment claims

When a worker is injured in an industrial accident, an investigation is usually done into the accident to determine what caused it. In many cases, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is the agency that handles the investigation, especially if there was a serious injury or death involved.

Stay safe by avoiding these common workplace accidents

Getting hurt at work is probably the last thing on your mind, but it does happen. Even in relatively safe workplaces, accidents have been known to occur because of simple mistakes or shortcuts. Here are a few of the most common causes of workplace accidents.s:

Man killed by electrocution in industrial accident in Maryland

When you're on the job, you take safety precautions to make sure you don't get hurt. For instance, if you're working with electricity, the breaker should be turned off, and you should be wearing the appropriate safety gear. Otherwise, if something goes wrong and safety precautions aren't taken, you could be seriously injured or killed by electrocution.

What kinds of injuries can take place on farms?

When you work on a farm, there are many things that could go wrong. Balers are sharp and can catch you and entangle you in line, animals can attack or become aggressive and chemicals are often around you, exposing you to potential poisons. Machines may not work right, and that can lead to malfunctions or mistakes that lead to injuries or deaths.
