One of the leading causes of workers’ compensation claims in the construction industry are injuries sustained from slips and falls. Falls in construction are segmented into two categories: same level falls and lower level falls. Workers who fall on a same level typically experience broken bones, back and muscle strains or contusions. However, falls to a lower level can be traumatic and involve brain injuries, spinal cord injuries or neck injuries. Falls of this nature require an aggressive attorney, like Mark Sutter, who will litigate on your behalf to get you what you deserve.
Workers in a variety of industries are at risk for burn injuries. From electricians and kitchen staff to employees in industrial plants, sustaining a burn injury is among the worst occupational injuries you can endure. In addition to costly medical treatment and missed wages from work, victims sometimes suffer life-changing complications.
