What can happen in a welding accident?
Welding is inherently dangerous given the high temperatures and pressurized gasses utilized.
Common injuries in the welding process include:
- Eye injuries
- Fatigue caused by overworking, double shifts, or multiple shifts
- 2nd and 3rd degree burns
- Dizziness due to inhalation of fumes
- Fires connected to sparks and the presence of gasoline or other flammable substances
- Workers with insufficient workspaces
There are OSHA regulations regarding welding, cutting, and brazing that, if ignored by employers, can entitle injured workers to compensation. The West Virginia work injury attorneys at the Fitzsimmons Law Firm PLLC can discuss your case with you to determine if you have a viable case and what you can expect during the process.
