According to the US department of labor, over 4 million injuries and illnesses were reported in private workplaces during 2004. Things like failure of vehicles, machinery or tools, exposure to general hazards, or inadequate safety training can lead to serious injuries, loss of work, and even death.
If you or a loved one are injured in the workplace due to the negligence of an employer, you may qualify for worker’s compensation and in some instances may be able to take legal action against the company to compensate you for your medical bills, loss of work, and often, pain and suffering. Additionally, in the case of long-term disability, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits.
