Lawyers That Handle Catastrophic Work Related Accidents
A work related injury is defined as any injury sustained while engaging in job-related duties. Catastrophic accidents, repetitive stress injuries and disease can all cause work related injuries.
Even if employees make the effort to protect themselves from injury, they may still be victims of accidents that result from unsafe conditions or an employer’s negligence. Catastrophic injuries can result from:
- Defective safety gear
- Exposure to toxic chemicals
- Unsafe or poorly maintained workplace equipment
- Lack of safety equipment
- Inadequate employee training
- Poor lighting conditions
- Forced overtime work when a worker is exhausted, injured or ill
Catastrophic personal injuries can result in emotional, physical and financial devastation. In many cases, the injured employee can no longer work or support his or her family at the same level as before. The employee may require home modification if he or she lost a limb or became paralyzed. Many families find it necessary to pursue legal action to ensure that they can remain financially afloat after a loved one has suffered an on-the-job injury. Your injury attorney can work with you to determine what your family needs in terms of compensation.
I Need a Florida Repetitive Stress Injury Attorney
Sometimes workplace injuries are not caused by accidents. Repetition of the same movements over time can result in repetitive stress injuries. These include conditions such as hearing loss, tendonitis and carpel tunnel syndrome. These injuries can occur in any workplace setting, including offices, factories, mechanical shops, construction accidents, semi-trucks, schools and retail establishments.

After long-term exposure to certain toxic chemicals and substances, employees can develop occupational diseases. Exposure to substances like asbestos and lead paint has been proven to cause lung cancer, mesothelioma, asbestosis, nerve damage and heart failure.
State and federal regulations prohibit workers from exposure to certain deadly substances. If an employer does not follow these regulations, they may be liable for any resulting illnesses.
