Getting Compensation After A Steel Mill Injury
Working in a steel mill can be very hazardous due to the use of heavy equipment or machinery. Workers may have to deal with forklifts, heavy machinery, large pieces of equipment and other dangerous work conditions. Because of the inherently dangerous nature of this profession, accidents can result in severe injuries or even death.
If you have been injured working at a steel mill or if your loved one has passed away due to injuries sustained at their steel mill work site, you need experienced and compassionate legal guidance. The attorneys at Sarkisian Personal Injury Lawyers can help you determine the first steps to receiving workers’ compensation death benefits. Furthermore, if a third party who was not the employer was responsible, we can also help you file a third-party liability claim or lawsuit. Our goal is for you to have the resources you need for the path ahead despite your injuries or the loss of your loved one. We will work with you every step of the way to make sure you receive the support you need to recover.
Injuries Sustained While Working Metal Can Be Serious
Steel mills and factories are inherently dangerous places to work, and injuries can happen in an instant. Some examples of common injuries include:
- Back injuries
- Head and spinal cord injuries, including traumatic brain injuries
- Amputations from power tools or heavy machinery
In addition, there is the possibility of environmental hazards. Many older buildings contain asbestos, which is known to cause mesothelioma.
Whenever someone is injured or falls ill in this type of location, it is important that they have legal counsel to advise them of their rights. The lawyers at Sarkisian Personal Injury Lawyers are patient, thorough and knowledgeable who work closely with each client. We know how important workers’ compensation injury or death benefits and all other available financial resources can be for families when a loved one is injured or killed. We never want you to feel alone in the process.
