Welding/Brazing/Cutting (Torch) Accidents
Torch related accidents occur on Miami and across South Florida construction sites every day. Construction workers rely on brazing, cutting, and welding torches in order to cut or join building materials together. Unfortunately, these pieces of equipment are not only very efficient but can also be potentially very dangerous.
If you have been injured in a construction site accident in Miami or anywhere in South Florida, you will want to ensure that you get fair compensation for your injuries so that you can replace lost income and pay for medical bills. Torch related accidents usually result in long-term and expensive medical care, so seeking fair compensation is an important part of the healing process. If you're looking for a workplace accident attorney or personal injury attorney in Miami or South Florida, you can always contact the Flaxman Law Group legal team to arrange for a free case evaluation to discuss your situation.Why torch accidents and other construction accidents happen in Miami and South Florida
There are many reasons why welding injuries and other types of torch injuries occur in Miami and across South Florida:
- incorrect training
- use of welding torches and other equipment in enclosed spaces
- lack of correct safety equipment and safety gear
- lack of correct supervision
- construction equipment defects
No matter why these types of accidents occur, the results can be devastating. Work-related accidents can result in severe burns, head injuries, amputations, fractures, and other serious injuries. In cases where a worker's clothing or gear catches fire, the results can be fatal. Even in cases where a worker is fortunate enough to survive, the long-term recovery can be costly, painful, and difficult. Victims who have been injured through no fault of their own do deserve fair compensation for their injuries so that they can make the fullest recovery possible. Under Florida law, those who are injured by someone's negligence do have a legal right to seek compensation for their injuries.Seeking legal help after a torch accident in Miami or South Florida
