Workplace Accidents Archives

What are some common lesser-known kitchen accidents?

A commercial kitchen is a dangerous place by nature. If you work in a kitchen in Texas, then you probably know all about the risks of getting burned and slipping and falling. However, there are also many hidden risks that you may not even think about. The Food Network points out three situations that you may not even think about when you consider kitchen hazards.

Health hazards associated with asbestos exposure

If you work in the construction industry in San Antonio, you probably face numerous hazards on a daily basis. Some of these hazards may be less obvious, such as the damage that can occur when exposed to asbestos over a long period of time. The following information details the kind of health problems that asbestos may cause, as well as how you can protect yourself and hold your employer accountable.

Can an insurance carrier take personal injury settlement money?

In short, your insurance carrier could, in certain circumstances, take the entirety of your third-party personal injury settlement. However, your carrier's rights to subrogate — the legal term for this type of recovery — are limited.

The consequences of repetitive stress

Accidents in the workplace occur in many different ways, from those which are caused by a co-worker's negligent behavior to traffic accidents involving a company vehicle. However, some people ignore the signs and dangers of repetitive stress, which can upend a worker's life in all sorts of ways. If you are suffering from a repetitive strain injury, you might be trying to deal with physical pain that makes daily life challenging or be unable to perform your job responsibilities altogether. Depending on the details surrounding your injury and the struggles you are facing, various options might be on the table, such as workers' compensation benefits.

The lesser-known dangers of the farming industry

Agriculture is one of the most crucial industries in the country. In Texas alone, agricultural production is worth billions -- with all of cattle, hay and other necessary production, the state is certainly a farming giant. Underneath all of this success, however, lies the workers that make this production possible. Few take the time to understand the difficulty of farming, but it is clear that the industry can be a dangerous one.  

Detailing the duty to protect employees from falls

For relatively healthy, able-bodied people in San Antonio, workplace falls may not seem to present that much of a risk. They may think that only very young children or the elderly can be subject to harm from a fall. Their confidence likely comes from not only believing that they are firmly in control of their motor skills, but also that they understand their working environments. Such people might be surprised to learn how big of a problem falls present to the American workforce.
