Dollars cannot put life back as it was before a metal worker’s injury. However, money can provide needed treatment and accommodations that can enable an injured metal worker to live a life of dignity and much greater comfort than what might be possible otherwise.
The Dangers Of Metal Work
Metal workers engage in some of the most challenging types of work. It is not surprising, then, that metal workers are often involved in serious accidental injuries. Severe and catastrophic injuries to steelworkers, ironworkers and other types of metal workers often occur because of:
- Falls from heights
- Back injury caused by heavy lifting
- Welding accidents
Some metal workers, such as welders, are exposed to potential occupational diseases such as manganese poisoning over time. Other metal workers are engaged in physically compromising circumstances that lend themselves to serious injuries such as:
- Loss of limb
- Visual damage
- Hearing loss
- Heart attack
We are prepared to advise and advocate on a metal worker’s behalf after a work accident. Whether you are the injured metal worker or a close family member, we can guide you through the complex processes of applications, lawsuits, appeals and administrative hearings.
