New Jersey Personal Injury Law Firm - Welding Burns
We Represent Clients on a Contingency Fee Basis · No-Cost Case Evaluation
There are many dangers associated with welding, from falls at construction sites to neurological problems from breathing dangerous fumes. If you have suffered an injury from welding, you may have options in addition to Workers’ Compensation.
The New Jersey personal injury law firm of Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow & McElroy, LLP, represents victims of welding accidents and injuriesthroughout the state. Our lawyers have more than a decade of experience aggressively protecting the rights of workers who have been injured by dangerous products. We are proud of our record of holding manufacturers and employers accountable for putting the lives and health of workers at risk.
Compensation for Injured Welders
There are many different kinds of welding injuries. Some of the most common include:
- Eye damage (including “arc eye”) caused by UV radiation
- Lung damage from breathing toxic gases
- Manganese poisoning and manganism (also known as secondary Parkinson’s disease) from welding rods
- Electrical shock injuries
- Falls from welding on elevated structures
- Hot metal slag burns
While Workers’ Compensation is designed to pay benefits to injured workers, these benefits are limited and do not include compensation for pain and suffering. If the injury was caused by the negligence of a third party (such as the manufacturer of welding rods, helmets or eye protection), our New Jersey product liability lawyers may be able to help you obtain full compensation by filing a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer.
Product liability cases are extremely complex and require a law firm that has the experience to establish negligence. Our attorneys have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in settlements and jury verdicts on behalf of individuals and families injured by dangerous products.
