Injured in Cold Storage

Many people in this country work hard to provide for themselves and their families. Millions of hard working Americans ought to feel safe and secure while they are working at their places of business. Unfortunately, not everyone is safe when they are providing for themselves and their families.

Every day, men and women become injured at work. In July 2014, a West Virginia man was injured at work when he slipped on ice on the floor of a walk-in freezer. He fractured his elbow after falling in the freezer. The injury that the man sustained required surgery for the placement of plates and screws in his elbow. The man is currently seeking compensatory damages, fees, and costs for his injury.

Similar incidents, like what happened to this West Virginia man, regularly happen to other workers. Almost every day, people are injured at work. Recovery from work injuries sometimes takes a long time. All businesses and companies should make sure that their employees are safe and secure while at work.

Every worker should be confident that they will be safe when they are at work. At Michael J. O’Connor & Associates, we want workers to get the treatment and respect that they deserve. Nobody should be unsafe when they are working. If injuries occur, we support the victims of these types of incidents. We are here to give you the support you need in times of trouble. We are always here to fight for your rights.
