Over 500,00 workers are injured in welding accidents each year. Welding is a challenging trade that requires substantial training to master. Unfortunately, many trained welders sustain injuries each year, even though they diligently follow safety procedures.
Welding joins two pieces of metal using intense heat to liquefy the medal. Because of dangerous levels of heat, welding can be a very dangerous job. Welders are exposed to ultraviolet radiation, metal fumes, and intense heat.
Whether on a construction site or a welding shop, welding work can be challenging and dangerous.
Welders must exercise a high level of care to avoid injuries from welding accidents.
A variety of circumstances can lead to a welding accident.
Some factors that might contribute to a welding injury include:
Employees and employers must take precautions to avoid welding accidents and exposure to dangerous and hazardous conditions while welding.
The dangers and hazards faced by welders can result in life-threatening injuries and conditions.
Welding accidents can cause permanent impairments and disabilities.
Common welding injuries include, but are not limited to:
Some welding injuries can be treated for a full recovery. However, there are some cases in which a welder sustains permanent impairments or disabilities. In the most severe cases, a welder may sustain life-threatening injuries that result in wrongful death.
If the welding injury occurred on the job, the welder’s injuries might be covered by workers’ compensation insurance. However, a welder may also have a third-party claim regarding a welding injury.
For example, if the welding equipment was defective, the welder might have a product liability claim against the manufacturer.
If a dangerous or hazardous condition existed on the property that caused the welding accident, the welder might have a premises liability claim against the property owner.
Identifying each of the parties and causes of action that could result in compensation for your damages is a crucial step in the personal injury claims process.
Damages from a welding accident could be substantial. The medical bills and lost wages could total hundreds of thousands of dollars before you include compensation for pain and suffering damages.
