A workplace accident doesn’t have to be severe for it to have lasting repercussions on a person’s life, or require compensation. Anytime you’re injured significantly you should speak with a personal injury attorney to understand your rights and what you might be due.
One small accident in Cumming may end up being a case in point. A call came in about a small explosion that happened at Rub-R-Wall Rubber Polymer Co., LLC. One employee received minor burns and there was a lot of smoke. Everyone else got out safely and one of the employees was able to put out the fire. The employee that was injured declined medical attention.
The firefighters ventilated the building and everyone was safe However, let’s offer a hypothetical situation. What if several years down the road a medical condition crops up due to exposure from the smoke of this accident? If it could be traced back, it could put the company at risk for a liability lawsuit and the affected individual may be due compensation.
It is the responsibility of employers to keep their employees safe. Never let an employer or a worker’s compensation company railroad you into accepting a settlement before it is examined by an outside party like John Foy & Associates.
