While performing work activities, one is exposed to the possibility of various injuries such as sprains, cuts, fractures and burns, among others. In the United States, these types of injuries occur on a daily basis, but many workers are not aware of the labor compensation they can receive if they suffer an injury. Following are a few of our most recent cases:
Trenton, New Jersey: On November 11, while operating a machine to package muffins, a bakery employee severed the tips of her middle and ring fingers when the machine pulled against her hand. She reported her accident and was sent to the doctor; however, the doctor decided to send her back to work, although she was still recovering from her injury.
New York: On October 9, while operating a sod cutter, a landscaping employee fractured his knee when the machine malfunctioned and threw him to the ground. He reported his accident and went to the emergency room, where he immediately underwent surgery, but his employer did not cover his medical expenses or send him to the insurance doctor.
Los Angeles, California: On September 29, a McDonald’s employee was injured when a co-worker accidentally spilled boiling oil on her back.

Milwaukee, Wisconsin: In September, while performing heavy machinery maintenance without assistance, a mechanic fractured his right foot when he lost control of a 50-pound engine which fell on top of him.
