Contractor fined for worker injury at Disneyland

Pennsylvania workers may be interested in a workplace injury case that occurred at Disneyland in November when a 37-year-old fell while cleaning the exterior of the popular Disney attraction Space Mountain. The worker suffered several broken bones.

The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health recently announced that it levied a $60,995 fine against HSG Inc., the Los Angeles-based contractor who employed the worker. Cal-OSHA said that the contractor violated several rules and should have provided anchors for the employee. HSG has two weeks to file an appeal of the judgment. Earlier in the week, the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health also proposed a $235,000 penalty against Disneyland for the workplace accident. Disney has not yet determined if it will appeal the fine.

Workplace accidents can lead to devastating injuries and expenses for workers. Victims may suffer chronic medical problems, disability and even death. They may also incur significant costs to cover medical expenses, rehabilitation, loss of income and a decrease in quality of life. In fatal accidents, the families of victims may experience financial need caused by the loss of their loved one's income.

Victims and victims' families may be entitled to financial compensation and may benefit from speaking with an attorney. A knowledgeable Pennsylvania workplace accident attorney could evaluate the case and determine a claim's probability of success. The attorney could also file claims, present supporting evidence and question expert witnesses. In a settlement, the attorney could negotiate on behalf of the client to maximize financial compensation.
