Welder Working and a Lot of Sparks Appear

Understanding Common Welding Accident Injuries

Working with welding equipment is no easy task, even for a construction worker specifically trained in working with this equipment. Oftentimes the fault in a welding accident doesn’t fall on the welder, but on supervisors who are in charge of ensuring occupational safety and that personal protective equipment is being worn properly. When proper safety measures are taken, then serious injury can be prevented.

One of the most common injuries sustained at construction sites is eye injuries while arc welding. This is when a welder’s eyes are exposed to ultraviolet light for too long; this can cause discomfort and even damage to the eye.

Injured welders are often not able to work until this condition heals as the condition can be worsened by further exposure even while wearing approved eye protection and proper equipment. This type of workplace accident can be prevented by ensuring that personal protective equipment is used on the whole construction site, especially in the welding area.

Other common injuries sustained on construction work sites include damage to the skin or lungs. Welders work with compressed gas cylinders that can release toxic fumes. Even with safety devices, the fumes can damage a worker’s lungs and cause them bodily harm. Welding materials and welding equipment also produce extreme heat that sometimes even safety precautions can’t account for, and this intense heat can lead to burns on workers’ skin.

Why You Should Choose Jesse Minc for Your Bronx Welding Accident Claim

There are several personal injury advocates in the Bronx and even more in New York City, so why should you choose Jesse Minc’s law firm to help you cover your medical expenses and recover compensation for your lost wages?

The answer is simple, we produce results. We’re selective with our clients because we only take the cases we believe in and the result of that is roughly ninety-five percent of our cases resulting in a beneficial outcome for our clients.

When you decide to seek compensation in your personal injury case, whether you’ve been injured in a welding accident due to poor safety standards, violation of OSHA regulations, or a negligent third party, we’ll fight to make sure that you receive the worker’s compensation benefits or personal injury settlement that you deserve. Don’t lie down and take your injury when you deserve compensation.

Most welding accidents can be prevented with proper training and safety regulations, such as requiring appropriate protective apparel when on site. All of these can help prevent welding accidents and reduce the risk to employees at the construction companies where they work.

What’s The Difference Between a Personal Injury Claim and Workers’ Compensation?

On the surface, the two might seem very similar and a bit confusing to people who don’t have a clear understanding of the legal system. There is a clear difference even though PI and workers’ comp claims share several similarities. One key similarity is that they both provide you with the financial compensation that you deserve, regardless of the other factors that distinguish them from each other.

You should file a personal injury claim when you’ve been injured on the job and a third party is to blame for your injury. This will ensure that when the matter is taken to court, the guilty party takes the blame and you are awarded the financial compensation you’re owed as a result of the third party’s negligence.

On the other hand, you may be able to file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits without regard for liability when you’re injured on the job. Worker’s compensation benefits are an entitlement under New York law, but you may not be able to file personal injury claims and collect worker’s compensation benefits unless your personal injury case is a third-party liability lawsuit. You can explore your legal options in greater detail when you connect with our Bronx welding accident attorneys.
