Savannah Work-Related Injury Attorney

Brooks Law Office Will Guide You through Your Injury Claim

Work-related accidents are a broad category that encompasses many injuries, including those from slip and falls, machinery failure, falls from heights, work-related auto accidents, improper training or safety measures, chemical exposure, and more. The injuries sustained can be catastrophic, and workers often are temporarily or permanently disabled due to back, neck, spine, or head injuries; repetitive strains; broken bones; severed limbs; damage to lung or other organs; and much more.

While many of these serious injuries are covered by the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation, an injured worker or their surviving family members may be able to file additional claims, including those against negligent third-parties, such as the manufacturer of a defective piece of equipment, or a wrongful death claim, if the worker lost their life.

CASE STUDY

Client: Male, 28 years old

Location: Savannah, GA

Injury: Work-related asthma, toxic exposure

Facts: A hospital hired an out of state salvage company to remove two old HVAC (air conditioning) units. They contained freon and another chemical compound that create dangerous toxic gas when heated. The salvage company cut corners in removing the chemicals and instructed their employees to cut the HVAC units with torches. The cutting torches burned the remaining freon and chemical compounds filling the work area with smoke that also entered the hospital’s air conditioning system. Our client was working in the area and was overexposed to the toxic fumes. He was taken to the emergency room.

Following the exposure, our client developed permanent asthma and could no longer perform his work as an HVAC technician.

Result: Our Savannah injury attorney filed suit seeking recovery of medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering damages for our client. The case settled the week before trial for a confidential amount.
