Every year, construction site accidents kill and injure thousands of individuals. Welding at construction sites is the source of many injuries as welding poses unique dangers to workers. Statistically, 1 in 250 construction workers will suffer a welding injury in their lifetime. The welding process produces UV radiation and intense visible light. UV radiation can cause damage to the eyes and skin, and intense visible light can cause damage to the retina and other eye conditions. Since the welding process involves fire and extreme heat, welding accidents often also involve severe burns. Welding accidents are not usually fatal, but the resulting injuries can be extremely painful, debilitating and embarrassing. It is not uncommon for a welding accident to seriously affect one's ability to carry on with life as usual. Welding accidents require a great deal of medical treatment and rehabilitation, which can lead to intense financial hardship for the injured person and his or her family.
What should you do if you have been injured in a welding accident?
The first thing that you should do is get medical attention for yourself and anyone else involved in the accident. Next, contact an experienced welding accident attorney who can help you arrange for a prompt and thorough investigation of the accident and explain your rights and options.
