We came across an unfortunate story in which a construction worker fell about 15 feet after the wall he was working on became unstable and collapsed. His injuries to his legs were severe...his left ankle was completely separated, he had fractured his right ankle, and had shattered his shin as well.

A recent settlement was just recently reached concerning a cellphone tower work who fell over 50 feet and suffered severe injuries. It was a long process, but the injured worker received close to $30 million in compensation for his life-altering injuries.
With any job, there are hazards...some are easy to spot...some, not-so-easy. We all notice the risks of a construction site...heavy machinery, moving beams, tall heights, etc., but what about the lifelong office worker who spends hours in front of their computer. Carpal Tunnel...eye strain...all of these are legitimate and possibly debilitating injuries that can affect one's ability to properly do their job.
Since we were little, we always had a fascination with the law...with doing what's right...with standing up for those that have been wronged. As we look back at it, this was the job we were "meant" to be doing.
With the weather starting to warm up, many motorcyclists have visions of going for a nice, long ride.
Over the weekend, an amusement park worker suffered injuries after he got pinned under the ride he was operating at the time. Officials are still trying to determine what exactly happened...but a look into the recent past shows that the company that runs the amusement park has a not-so-stellar work safety record.
We come across a lot of numbers/stats involving injuries at work, and the trend that we see, unfortunately, is that injuries/fatalities in the workplace are constantly rising.
The most common question we get is along the lines of "I've been injured at work...what do I do?"
