Left Behind Spill Causes Work Accident

Work-related injuries can occur at any time...any place. No matter the experience level of the employee..."freak" accidents can occur leading to serious injury.

A Pickering logistics company has been fined $75,000 for a workplace accident that left an employee seriously injured.

A worker operating a reach truck sustained a permanent injury after crashing into a warehouse wall at Aspect Retail Logistics on Church Street in May of 2016, according to evidence heard in provincial offences court in Whitby. It's believed the truck went out of control after hitting water left behind by floor-scrubbing equipment, court heard on Sept. 21.

This employee was just going about his normal workday, and could never have foreseen his vehicle going out of control due to a spill. So, what happens next?

If you suffered a work-related injury while working on a job site in Iowa, chances are you are covered under your employer's Iowa workers' compensation insurance policy. You are entitled to receive paid medical treatment and physical rehabilitation by approved medical providers.

If your disability puts you out of work, you are also entitled to seek a weekly cash settlement to help compensate you for lost earnings and wages while you recover from your injuries.

Too many times we hear from injured workers who say that they didn't even know they have rights! We find most of the time that's due to the fact that employers don't educate their employees on what rights they have, and hope, in event of an accident, that the injured employee won't pursue their rights.

We find that to be unacceptable...and will do everything we can to ensure you receive your full and rightful compensation!
