Dangerous Contact with a Piece of Equipment or Falling Object
Being struck by a falling object, or experiencing dangerous contact with a piece of equipment accounts for 22.2% of all workplace injury claims. These instances can have the potential to result in a serious injury and put employees in significant danger. In fact, in the logging industry, the majority of fatal injuries occurred due to employees being struck by a falling object.
Workers’ compensation will cover your medical costs and disability leave no matter whose ‘fault’ it is. As long as you were in a place you are required to be by your employer, and you report the injury to your employer, you have rights to a claim.
