Bonding with a workers' comp lawyer could be a welder's best bet

If you are a welder in an Iowa factory, you may not realize how many health and injury risks you face in your line of work. Along with many potential burn injury hazards, your eyesight could face several threats as well. Furthermore, welding fumes can cause respiratory problems, and according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, a significant number of career welders die from injuries caused by their occupations.

Those most often exposed to the hazards of welding typically include workers at manufacturing plants such as automotive, marine and other industries, along with construction. Any expenses you have after suffering an on-the-job injury will be compensable by the benefits that you can claim from your company's workers compensation insurance.

I've been injured on a medical field job. What should I do?

If you are a health care worker in Iowa, you may eventually find yourself on the receiving end of the type of care you often give to others. After all, suffering a job-related injury is not uncommon for a nurse, for example, due to the nature of the work performed in the medical industry. Fortunately, if you have been hurt on the job, workers' compensation insurance, also known as workers' comp, can be a major help to you financially.

Handling patients can be hazardous for health care workers

Working in the health care industry can be rewarding, but it can also be painful. One of the duties of many health care workers is to reposition or transfer patients who are often unable to provide any assistance in the lifting process. Lifting a sleeping, unconscious or weak patient can mean pain in the shoulders, back and neck.
