Every year, construction site accidents kill and injure thousands of individuals. Construction sites can be extremely dangerous, with workers dealing with large, heavy or sharp objects, high or elevated surfaces and deep ditches or trenches. 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. Seeking the professional help of a talented attorney, who has experience with construction site accidents, can help relieve some of these burdens and will enable you to have the support you need to move forward.What should you do if you have been injured in a welding accident?
