On the Job Injuries
On the job injuries and death occur while a worker is performing his job activities, regardless of the industry or the type of job.
Statistics indicate that nearly six million private sector workers are injured every year while on the job. Depending on the severity of the injury, many workers require light or restricted duties. Other workers are forced to miss multiple days of work to recover, resulting in lost wages. When medical bills associated with workers' on-the-job injuries begin coming in, the combination of both physical and financial strain can create more problems.
Typical Reasons for Injuries at Work:
- unsafe work conditions
- lack of safety equipment
- lack of training
- improper supervision
- lack of appropriate warnings
While workers are free to file a workers' compensation claim against their employer (assuming workers' compensation insurance exists), our Dallas work injury lawyers know there may be other potential parties or persons who may be responsible for a worker's on-the job injuries or damages. For instance, sub-contractors or equipment providers may also have some liability or responsibility.
There are numerous industries and different types of work sites where employees and workers are placed at risk for on-the-job injuries. These types of business, work sites, and work places include:
- Shipyards (may be a risk of asbestos exposure)
- Oilfield and Oil Services
- Railroad and Railway
- Construction Sites
