Attention Injured Welders – What You MUST Legally Know First
Welding is an indispensable part of construction, and the industry hires over half a million welders each year. While welding as an industry is heavily regulated, there are many risks associated with the job, making it one of the most dangerous jobs in construction. In fact, it is estimated that over 300,000 workers are injured in welding-related jobs and some of them permanently, making it that they aren’t able to continue with their professions, necessitating a career change that may not guarantee as much money as their previous welding job. If you were injured as a welder and believe that negligence had a role to play in it, you may be eligible for compensation via a welding injury lawsuit which may see you recover thousands in money damages, and we’re here to help with that.

This can include things like not providing workers with sufficient amounts of work breaks, lack of protective welding gear, poor or no worker training due to onboarding, and so on.
