What Type Of Harm Did You Suffer At Work?
Employers and manufacturers do many things in the interests of productivity and profits. When their actions cross the line and endanger the safety and lives of workers, they should be held accountable.
- Toxic or chemical exposure: When an employer knowingly allows a worker to be exposed to toxic substances, that employer can be sued for an intentional tort – intentionally placing an employee's health and well-being at risk. The carbide dust from grinding hard metal or improper use or disposal of chemicals can create a deadly work environment. If you suspect workplace occupational exposure contributed to a loved one's illness, talk to a workplace injury lawyer at Lamkin, Van Eman, Trimble & Dougherty.
- Machinery modifications: In order to speed the production process or to use less energy, an employer will sometimes modify machinery. When machine modification results in removing safety guards, the employer is deliberately placing workers in danger. If you are injured in the workplace because of machine modifications, consult with a workplace injury attorney at Lamkin, Van Eman, Trimble & Dougherty.
- Unsafe machinery: If the design or manufacture of machinery makes it unsafe to use, it can be a hazard in the workplace. If you or a loved one suffers a head injury, brain injury, electrical burns or amputation caused by a malfunctioning machine, know your rights.
