Temporary labor, especially blue-collar labor, has become a very injury-prone sector of the job market. Due to harsh economic times, many employers have hired temporary workers rather than full-time employees. This is especially true in jobs that require manual labor. For example, workplace settings would include industrial manufacturing facilities, warehouses and construction sites. These workplace injuries often stem from situations in which workers are given little to no training.
It is very important for employees to know their rights when it comes to workplace accidents. Workplace injuries can put employees out of work, and leave them unable to support themselves and their families. A scaffolding fall, falling debris, negligent operating of machinery, and employer negligence are all instances that may require representation in the courtroom when you are seeking compensation for your injury.
