Workers’ Compensation Statistics: Beware of the Most Dangerous Industries – Palm Beach Workers Compensation Lawyer

Palm Beach Workers Compensation Lawyer

Palm Beach Workers Compensation Lawyer | Palm Beach Workers Comp AttorneyNo matter where you work, who you work for or what precautions you take, a workplace accident or injury can happen to you.

Annual statistics are tallied and reviewed to determine the greatest incidences of injuries, accidents and even deaths.

In 2014 Florida announced that 53,318 employees were hurt at work and reported a workers’ compensation claim. Data gathered across the county revealed 264,796 employees were injured on the job in the United States.

If you watch the news, or listen to the radio, Florida seems to always be somewhere in the highlights (or low lights depending on which side of the story you are on) of crazy stories or unbelievable events. However, we were not in the top 5 states for most injuries. Work injury lawyers and statistics found that Maine topped the states with 5.3 injuries per 100 full time equivalent (FTE) employees; Vermont had 5.2 per 100 FTE; Washington had 4.8 per 100 FTE; Montana had 4.7 per 100 FTE; and Iowa had 4.3 per 100 FTE.

2014 saw 98 reported workplace fatalities in Florida and 4,405 death cases nationwide. Our work injury compensation lawyers know how devastating a loss of life can be and we strive to help the families of those lost in accidents at the workplace obtain the care and assistance they deserve.

In Florida there were 15,233 reported slip and fall cases, 2,434 reported motor vehicle accidents, 83 reported electrical shock/electrocutions and 521 crush type injuries.

It is unfortunate when a loved animal attacks, but many delivery people, home service technicians and other skilled laborers who visit customer’s homes can be the victims of animal attacks. Other ill-fated injuries occur when coworkers become violent against other coworkers. In the U.S. there were 75,610 reported instances of non-fatal violence and 753 fatal accidents reported. We represent many workers who need work injury lawyers after being attacked by coworkers or animals. We can help you too.

Statistics show that throughout the U.S. governmental workers and public administrators account for 180,130 injuries while Florida reports 4,441 injuries in the same industry. Retail trade employees include 128,800 injuries nationwide and 6,491 in Florida. Manufacturing industry workers suffered 120,110 accidents across the nation and 3,602 in the sunshine state.
No matter how an injury happens, if you have been hurt at work, we can help. Our dedicated workers’ compensation lawyers are ready and willing to talk with you to determine how we can obtain medical care and lost wages when you need it most.

After reviewing the numbers, one thing is clear. Being hurt at work can happen at any time, at any place and to anybody. Workers’ compensation lawyers were very busy defending injured workers’ rights and obtaining the benefits they were entitled to under the law. When injured in a workplace accident, call our workers’ compensation lawyers so that we may help you receive the medical care you need to get back to work and the lost wages to food on the table and the lights on.

My husband was hurt and never dealt with an attorney before. He looked up attorneys online & thru the grace of God got Lissa Dorsey as his attorney & she was truly amazing! She was very involved, always returned our phone calls & made the whole process as easy for us as she possibly could while my husband treated with Dr's and started his healing process. I would recommend her to any & everyone without a doubt.
