Workers' compensation benefits available for injured workers

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration says it recently cited one of the primary utility providing companies in Florida. This followed a May incident in which four workers landed in the hospital after they were exposed to a toxic substance -- an incident that likely led to workers' compensation claims. Anhydrous ammonia is a hazardous gas, and exposure can cause respiratory irritation, skin burns and even suffocation. Investigators determined that the dangerous release of gas was caused by a pipeline that was over pressurized.

Workers' compensation benefits available after trench collapses

Trenches are some of the most dangerous workspaces for workers. For this reason, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has national emphasis programs at regular intervals to monitor trench safety and create awareness of the potentially deadly hazards that excavations pose. A significant number of workers' compensation claims involve trench-related injuries every year. Following an inspection during an emphasis program, a Florida-based company is facing proposed penalties totaling almost $150,000.

Personal injury claims can follow boating accidents

Many people in Florida know what they have to do if they are involved in an automobile accident. However, they may not be too sure of the steps to take when they are involved in a boating accident. A personal injury suffered on the water is not uncommon, and in many cases, boating or jet ski accidents are caused by the negligence of other boat operators.

The ins and outs of filing a wrongful death lawsuit

When a Florida family loses a loved one due to another person's reckless, negligent or deliberate actions, the surviving members of the family may have grounds for filing a civil lawsuit against the person deemed responsible. The civil action of filing a wrongful death lawsuit enables them to pursue financial relief. When such a lawsuit is filed, the plaintiffs must establish negligence before the civil court can determine the monetary value of the damages to be awarded to the family members.

Social Security disability benefits for traumatic brain injuries

Traumatic brain injuries can prevent victims from returning to work. Florida workers whose brain injuries render them disabled may apply for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. Workers who contributed to Social Security taxes during their years of employment are eligible for these benefits. However, there are financial and technical rules that must be met for eligibility.

Personal injury lawsuit may follow injury at North Florida Fair

On Saturday, Nov. 4, a Tallahassee girl suffered injuries after being thrown from the 'Musik Express,' a North Florida Fair ride. Similar accidents in other states have led to personal injury lawsuits, which might also happen in this case. The general manager of the mobile fair company said the ride was shut down after the incident but reopened the next morning after an inspection, the results of which were not mentioned. The inspection was done by the state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

Personal injury lawsuits come in different types

All kinds of injuries and accidents lead to the staggering number of claims in civil lawsuits that are filed in Florida and other states annually. Anybody who is suffering the consequences of injuries caused by another person's negligence might have grounds for filing a personal injury lawsuit. Of all the different types of personal injury claims, product liability is one of the most common.
