Metal And Ironworkers

Metal And Ironworkers

Ironworkers enable the most awe-inspiring buildings to scrape the city skies. As with many construction workers, metal and ironworkers work in an environment with a lot of risk for injury. Ironworkers often work on buildings many stories up, and a fall from scaffolding can cause severe injury or even death. Dropped objects from overhead can also strike a worker, inflicting wounds and brain injury. Heavy machinery and electrical accidents are often common in this field. Common injuries that ironworkers experience can be:

  • Injury from high falls
  • Cuts & Lacerations from sharp objects
  • Back & Muscle Strain from moving heavy objects
  • Repetitive Motion Injuries, such as carpal tunnel, tendinitis, etc. from welding and other activities
  • Serious Burns
  • Electrocution from contact with live wires
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI’s) from fallen objects
  • Eye Injuries from flying metal fragments, projectiles, dust, and other debris
  • Amputation from power tools

Ironworkers enter the field knowing how dangerous the job can be. They are entitled to workers’ compensation if they experience an injury from their day-to-day job functions. With questions regarding your potential case, contact our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys at Kaufman Law.
