Personal Injury And Accident Related Injuries To Those Who Work Outdoors
Are you one of the many people who work outside for a living or for pleasure? Many accidents can happen in a blink of an eye no matter how careful you and are. Injured? Hurt? Call the Law Offices of Cory H. Morris 631-450-2515. Below is a short list of some types of injuries/accidents that can occur for which you may be entitled to compensation:
Carbon monoxide poisoning from the gas fumes as you fill up the equipment to be used, in a small closed off space. Owners and employers may have a duty to ensure safe facilities to gas up equipment and dispose of toxic materials.
Burns (1st, 2nd, and 3rd degree burns and injuries) can occur by accidentally touching machine parts that are hot, from a failure to provide safety equipment or from injuries resulting from exposure to dangerous materials.
Back pain has been known to happen when using a push mower or when an employer fails to provide safety equipment, enough workers (lifting and pulling) or the proper machinery for the job.
Fires and fire related injuries can occur when you there is split oil, gas or other flammables. Dangerous material and the failure to contain dangerous material can result in an injury for which an employer or premises owner may be liable.
Hearing Loss may occur due to loud machinery, working without safety equipment or continued exposure to hazardous material or simply when any other equipment is loud and a worker is not properly insulated from such noise.
Food poisoning and food borne illness, from hepatitis exposure to food being over exposed to the heat may be due to the negligence of the restaurant owner or food preparation. If you are made ill because of a restaurant owner/manager's negligence, Call the Law Offices of Cory H. Morris 631-450-2515.
Heat strokes may occur when the body heats up the body and causes fever and, in some cases, unconsciousness.
Slip and falls may occur due to uneven payment, dangerous or hazardous items in the walkway or due to the failure to maintain premises free of liquids.
Dog bites may occur when another person’s vicious dog is otherwise not harnessed. Some Dogs bite without being provoked. Some dogs are trained to be vicious and may have attacked others in the past.
These are only a few examples of that injuries and accidents that can happen. Sometimes the equipment you are using itself may be defective. If you can prove the product is defective, then a lawsuit may be appropriately filled against the manufacturer.
Have you ever heard of toxic tort? This when you as a person are injured due to chemicals and other substances that are toxic. To name a few, thinner, fertilizer, gas, diesel, and radium are some of the most toxic. You might not see the effects at the moment, however they can use up in your lungs, muscles, head (headaches) and other body parts. Subject to such chemicals? Call the Law Offices of Cory H. Morris 631-450-2515.
Drunk drivers is another thing to add on your list of things to look out for when working outside or simply driving home. Bar owners and bartenders may have served someone who then crashes into an innocent third party. Not only should the drunk driver but the person responsible for serving an intoxicated person should be liable for such injuries caused by drunk an drugged driving.
If you have been injured as a worker or a person in your own yard, you might be able to sue for personal injuries you received. You could use a third-party for defaulted equipment, drunk driver, non-drunk driver, or for toxic substance you or someone else has used. There may be liability.
