There are numerous dangers that workers can face everyday they show up at their place of employment; however, the Texas Construction Accident Lawyers with Daniel Stark Injury Lawyers explain one of the most common risks seen on-the-job is an employee coming into contact with objects or equipment at the job site. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that such accidents were responsible for more than 15 percent of all workplace fatalities last year.
More recently, a worker at a fertilizer plant in Williamson County, Texas, was seriously injured as the result of an accident involving a piece of machinery at the workplace. According to a story from KEYE TV News, the incident occurred on the morning of Monday, November 18, at the American Plant Food Corporation facility in the town of Bartlett, Texas.
Reports indicate the worker was performing his typical job duties when his leg became caught in a screw-like piece of machinery used to dig holes, called an auger. As a result of the contact, the worker sustained serious injuries to his leg that required he be transported to a hospital in Temple, Texas.
Daniel Stark and his team of Texas Personal Injury Lawyers are aware of how difficult it can be to recover from an injury or loss of a loved one caused by a workplace accident. That is why the firm would encourage anyone who has been injured in an on-the-job accident to discuss their legal rights with a reputable attorney immediately.
