Welding is often one of the most critical parts of a construction project. As a welder, you have learned an important skill and contribute key work to your construction team’s site. You probably already know that welding can be very dangerous. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the risk of fatal injury among welders is four in one thousand over a lifetime of work.
Because of this danger, there are many safety requirements that your employer must follow in order to make your work environment as safe as possible. Most employers follow these protocols carefully, keeping welders safe. Unfortunately, however, some employers fail to adhere to required safety protocol. When employers and site managers are negligent about welder safety, they put the lives of their workers at risk.
If you were injured in a welding accident, you know this firsthand. You may be struggling to recover from your injuries, pay huge medical bills or even return to work.
Fortunately, you do not have to suffer in silence. An attorney may be able to help you win a financial settlement for your injuries. This compensation can help cover medical costs and missed wages. Most importantly, it can help hold negligent employers accountable. This can help prevent future injuries at your work site.
