Welding Personal Injuries Claims

Welding Personal Injuries Claims

Statistics show that there has been a rise in the number of welding personal injury claims lodged by industrial workers in recent years. Many people may think that this is simply a way to game the system, but there are actually good reasons why so many workers are turning to personal injury lawyers to seek compensation for their injuries. In this blog post, we will explore some of the most common reasons why industrial workers file personal injury claims. We will also discuss how these claims can help them get the compensation they deserve.

Welding is a physically demanding job that requires precise hand-eye coordination and a steady hand. Did you know that it can also pose serious health risks? The fumes emitted during the wielding process can lead to lung injuries and even brain damage.

Protective Equipment Matters

Welders may not be aware of the long-term consequences of their actions, leading to an increase in personal injury claims related to these fumes. In addition to breathing issues, materials used for welding can also cause eye irritation or burns, further affecting a welder’s ability to safely do their job. It’s important for employers to educate their employees on the potential dangers and provide proper protection, as well as make sure workers are regularly checking for signs of injury and illness.

Welding injuries can often be devastating, leading to severe burns and loss of limb. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were over 10,000 incidents involving fire or explosion in 2017 alone. Fortunately, these injuries are preventable through the use of appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). This includes goggles to protect your eyes from flying sparks, gloves to shield your hands from hot metal, and proper clothing to prevent burns.

It is important for employers to provide employees with all necessary PPE. They have a legal duty of care to ensure workplace safety. However, it is also up to individual employees to properly use and maintain their PPE in order to reduce the risk of injury. Welding injuries can have lifelong consequences – don’t become a statistic. Make sure you always have the right PPE for the job.
