Workers Suffer When Employers Continue to be Negligent

When you see an article about a worker being injured, it's not surprising to discover later that this is just the latest accident to occur due to an employer's negligence.

From TheRepublic.com

A Rightway Fasteners employee was injured after becoming pinned in a machine at the plant.

Columbus firefighters responded to the industrial accident reported at 2:50 p.m. Tuesday at Rightway, 7945 S. International Drive in the Woodside Industrial Park.

The employee was believed to be cleaning bolts in the machine when the accident occurred, Columbus Fire Department Battalion Chief Mark Ziegler said.

He was pinned in the machine and then extricated by other Rightway employees before the fire department arrived, Ziegler said.

The employee was treated for cardiac arrest at the scene by firefighters and ambulance personnel and transported to Columbus Regional Hospital, he said.

It is later reported in the article that emergency services have visited this company numerous times in the past few years. Are these just random accidents...or are they a pattern? Is the employer doing all they can to ensure their employees' safety?

We see far too often that employers do just the bare minimum (or even worse) to try and keep their workers safe on the job site.

Due to the lack of safety measures, accidents will happen more and more frequently, leading to workers being injured while on the job.

Do you think the negligent employer will care whether you receive your full compensation? If you already know they don't care about your safety when you're able-bodied, why would they think twice about you now that you're injured?

We at Loney & Schueller are dedicated to fighting for the injured worker. You have rights...rights that need to be exercised. You are owed full-compensation for the injuries you experience at the workplace, and Eric, Randy, and Sarah are ready to fight for you.
