Are You A Union Welder At The Port Of Los Angeles, San Pedro Or Long Beach Seriously Burned Or Scalded At Work? Call Superior Lawyers With Heart
“Let’s Solve it.”
This article covers union worker burns and toxic smoke inhalation. It also discusses how to get compensation beyond union benefits.
If a worker suffers a bad burn or sucks in toxic smoke, the employee union is supposed to offer some help. But this assistance is often not enough to protect the employee. Typically the injured worker will need more than Worker’s Compensation. And they risk losing their livelihoods. Also, no union benefits can make up for the loss of your future income and happiness.
All of these facilities require:
These jobs can all be risky trades. But the main cause of accidents is employers failing to keep a safe workplace. If defective equipment exists, carelessness is likely the reason.
And that means the place is unsafe. As a result, workers can inhale toxic welding rod smoke. They can also get shocked and burned. Gas explosions are almost to be expected at the docks. And people get hurt.
All in all, smoke inhalation and burns are tragic. These men and women deserve better. Now they are at risk for cancers and breathing problems. Workers can become disfigured and remain in pain for life.
Also, they may lose their jobs. So now they are our future income. And union benefits won’t be enough. But an attorney can look at other sources of payment for the smoke or fire burns.
The idea is to pin down other defendants who could have played a role in your burn injury — that way, the lawyer can find other defendants with money to pay the injured worker. For example, if a welding tank explodes, a product liability case may lie against the tank’s manufacturer.
Because the tank blew, it might be defective. In that case, there would be a suit against the people who built and distributed the tank. Because they made a faulty tank, it blew up.
That means they have a legal debt to you. Are you getting this so far? So even though you are a union member, you have more rights. If you or a loved one got harmed on duty, discuss your case with a negligence lawyer.
The burn injury lawyers at Ehline Law Firm have the experience. And these experts have the resources to protect the injured victim’s rights. We can do more than a union advocate.
We leave no stone unturned when it comes to your rights to compensation. But it is essential to learn your rights and how it all works, as soon as possible. After all, evidence can be lost, and witnesses’ memories can fade.
However, the law limits the amount of time to file a legal claim. Also, it restricts what types of damages a family can get in a wrongful death action.
