Facts About Work Accidents

Recent research shows that if companies were to follow federal safety regulations, it would prevent most employee injuries. Most occupational illnesses and work injuries are due, ultimately, to employer negligence. It is the employers’ responsibility to train workers and mitigate workplace hazards to keep employees safe.

Research demonstrates the danger of injuries in the workplace, including:

  • About 50,000 workers die from occupational illnesses every year—or 150 workers a day.
  • Work accidents cause 24,000 serious employee injuries each year.
  • 800 workers are killed by workplace violence every year.
  • Fall protection in the construction industry is the most violated OSHA standard.

If you lost a loved one in a work accident, you are entitled to file a wrongful death claim. Our Fort Worth work injury attorneys at Arnold & Itkin can guide you through the process and can help you hold your loved one's wrongdoers accountable while securing your family's future,

Common ways that work accidents happen in Fort Worth and across Texas include the following:

Most Common Types of Workplace Injuries

Workplace injuries can occur regardless of your field of work. It is even more likely to happen when an employer fails to provide a safe work environment. As a result, serious injuries often require workers to get extensive medical treatment, putting their families under undue financial stress.

Serious injuries occur on the job every year, including:

  • Abrasion
  • Acoustic trauma
  • Back injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Cuts
  • Loss of limb
  • Loss of vision
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Sprains

Catastrophic Work Injuries & Your Right to Compensation

When work injuries are so serious that they impact a person's life, they are considered "catastrophic." Severe burns, amputation, spinal cord injuries, and brain injuries are all examples of catastrophic work injuries. They may leave a worker and their family facing an uncertain future because of ongoing treatment, physical or mental limitations, and lasting psychological trauma. The severe and lasting impact of these on-the-job injuries makes it absolutely crucial to recover fair, complete compensation.

What Causes Fort Worth Work Accidents?

Employer negligence is one of the most common reasons why work accidents occur. Carelessness from an employer or co-worker can lead to serious accidents that leave one or more people severely injured.

The following are some examples of what can lead to a workplace accident:

  • Equipment Failure
    Equipment that is poorly manufactured, maintained, and operated can cause severe or fatal injuries. Heavy machinery, industrial equipment, power tools, construction vehicles, fork lifts, and cranes are some of the most dangerous objects at Fort Worth worksites.
  • Falling Objects & Flying Debris
    It is common for construction sites, logging sites, factories, warehouses, and shipyards to have falling objects and flying debris. This can cause damage to the eyes, ears, and the head—which can prevent a person from returning to work.
  • Slips & Falls
    Slippery or cluttered floors, poor lighting, and lack of guardrails often trigger these incidents. Slip and fall accidents may occur at hospitals, construction sites, factories, ships, warehouses, retail stores, offshore oil rigs, and land rigs.
  • Failure to Comply with Safety Regulations
    Unfortunately, it is common for employers to fail to meet federal regulations that govern workplace health and safety. Any violation could have disastrous results.
  • Inadequate Inspections
    It is vital for employers to inspect workers and equipment. Not doing so will make it difficult to identify and correct risks in the workplace. This can include defective ladders and scaffolds. They also would be unaware of problems in derricks, cranes, hoists, pulleys, and forklifts. Workers should be wearing the proper protective gear and operating machinery safely.
  • Insufficient Training
    It is important for every employee to receive proper training so they can identify potential hazards in the workplace and have the knowledge to fix it.

After a Work Accident: What You Should Do

If you've been injured at work, you can take a few steps to protect yourself:

  • Report your injury to your employer as soon as possible.
  • Seek medical attention, even if you feel you only experienced minor injuries.
  • Follow your doctor's orders and treatment plan.
  • Do not be afraid to ask to see a different doctor if you feel you aren't receiving the best care.
  • Keep detailed records of everything: medical bills, communication with your employer, and more.
  • Do not accept a settlement or sign anything without talking to an attorney first.
  • Involve a Fort Worth work injury lawyer who can protect your rights and interests.

Because every accident is different and every situation is unique, use your best judgment and don't hesitate to talk to your doctor and your attorney to make sure you're putting your health and legal rights first.
