What can welding put into the air?

Among the health hazards that sometimes arise for workers are inhalation risks. Certain substances, when inhaled, can cause significant harm to a worker’s system. This harm can sometimes have permanent or even fatal consequences for a worker.

Now, there are various challenges that could arise for a worker who has suffered harm from having inhaled substances put into the air by a work activity when it comes to building their case for workers’ compensation. This could include difficulties with: showing the hazardous substance inhalation happened at work, establishing proof that the inhalation caused one’s injuries and determining the extent of the harm the inhalation caused. Experienced Connecticut workers’ compensation lawyers can give victims of workplace hazardous substance inhalation injuries guidance on addressing such challenges and assist them in their quest to get fair workers’ compensation benefits.

Should active injury mitigation tech be required on table saws?

Accidents involving tools can cause some serious losses for a person. In some instances, a loss of a body part through amputation is among these losses.

One type of tool-related accident that is responsible for quite a few amputations here in the U.S. are accidents involving table saws. According to federal estimates, around 4,000 amputations a year occur in relation to incidents involving such saws. As a note, table saw accidents are also behind tens of thousands of non-amputation injuries a year, according to federal data.

Damages that may be awarded in wrongful death claims

The death of a loved one can turn a person's life upside down. Whether the passing was sudden or expected, the loss can have a profound impact on the friends and family members of the decedent. This impact can be felt emotionally, physically and even financially.

While money certainly cannot truly compensate loved ones for the damages suffered, it can help Connecticut residents recover and cope with the loss. In fact, compensation for wrongful death claims allows for both economic and noneconomic damages.
