Brooklyn Welding Accidents Lawyer

The skills of welders are in high demand in a wide range of industries. They are needed to build everything from ships and aircraft to homes and automobiles. You also have a range of trades like pipefitting and ironworking that involves welding as a part of the job.

Along with being an important trade in so many industries, welding also happens to be one of the more hazardous trades. Thousands of welders and other tradesmen are injured every year and many of the accidents can be quite serious.

Types of Welding Injuries

Risk is always present for welders. Even with all of the proper protective equipment and precautions, accidents and injuries can happen. As a welding accident law firm in Brooklyn, the lawyers from Shulman & Hill have represented welders with many different types of injuries.

The following are some of the more common welding injuries:

Eye Injuries

Eye injuries are very common among welders. This is due to bright light exposure. With intense bright light, there is the potential for damaging the cornea and retina. This exposure can cause immediate flash injuries and it can also contribute to issues with cataracts and other vision disorders.

Fume Injuries

Welding gives off hazardous fumes that can be damaging if the individual breathes them in. It can increase the risk of respiratory diseases and some welding fumes can increase the risk for neurological disorders and several forms of cancer.

Burns

Burns are a common occupational hazard for welders. The intense UV light created by the process can burn the skin and contribute to risks for skin cancer. There is also the potential for contact burns and fires associated with welding.

Causes of Brooklyn Welding Injuries

Safety has to be the highest priority in any workplace that has welders. It is a job with some inherent risks, so project managers, employers, and workers all need to adhere to strict safety standards. When these standards are ignored or overlooked, people can get hurt.

Even with all of the safety standards, welding injuries are still common. Regardless of the industry, it is up to employers to make sure safety standards are met and that hazards are mitigated. Unfortunately, some managers and employers fail in this regard. It is not unheard of for project managers to cut corners in order to save money or get a project done on time.

Welders should be provided with the proper protective equipment. If the right safety equipment is unavailable, it can expose welders to the potential for injury. This is often due to employers not wanting to buy the correct equipment or trying to save money by using equipment that does not provide enough protection.

Training can be another issue. Welding is a difficult skill to master and it takes significant training for a person to be able to do it safely. If a welder has insufficient training, they could injure themselves or other workers.

Unsafe equipment can be another factor leading to welding accidents. If the equipment is defective, damaged, or just old and poorly maintained, it could expose workers to the risk of welding injuries.

Proving fault or identifying the liable party can be difficult for many workplace injuries. That is why it is best to hire a skilled personal injury lawyer in Brooklyn like the ones from Shulman & Hill. We can help you investigate the cause of the accident to find who was at fault and develop a case to provide you with the best chance of success.

Compensation for Welding Injuries

Compensation for welding injuries will vary depending on the case. Factors like the severity of the injury, the losses you sustained, and the party at fault can all play a role.

Most cases will involve compensation for medical expenses. This can include the cost of any treatment you have undergone up to the point of the claim and any future medical expenses that you expect to need in the future.

Lost income is another common issue in welding accident claims. If you have missed work as a result of a welding accident, you will likely get compensation to help you make it through that time.

Some injury victims might also be entitled to compensation for lost earning potential. If an injury is severe enough, it might impact your ability to earn a living well into the future. If that is the case, it can be a part of your claim.
