Workers' Compensation Attorney
Handling Personal Injury Claims in Sandy Springs, GA
According to City-Data, there are a few top industries in Sandy Springs. The first is professional, scientific, and technical services which make up 17% of the city’s industry work for men. Most of the time, this seems like a safe field to work in. Yet if a scientist is working with hazardous materials or a technical serviceman is handling electrical components, these jobs can actually come with serious risk. If you are a technician and are harmed while working with an electrical product, or are exposed to a dangerous chemical at a lab, then you should contact our Sandy Springs injury law firm today.
9% of the city industry is devoted to finance and insurance, and another 9% is devoted to accommodation and food services. As well, another 7% of the city’s industry is construction. In particular, construction workers are at risk to horrific injuries while they are going about their jobs. This is because in construction there is potential for falls, electricity accident, and equipment malfunctions. There are also times that a building may fall and the debris can harm a construction worker. When contractors don’t require that employees wear ear protection when working with loud machinery, it can cause damage that can eventually make a worker go deaf.
Even if you don’t work in an at-risk environment, you may still become injured at your workplace and qualify for compensation under workers' compensation law. For example, if you develop carpal tunnel from typing or back problems from the chairs provided at your desk job, you may be able to spark a lawsuit that will cover the money need to get proper medical attention.
