Call a St. Petersburg Workers' Compensation Lawyer

Cuts happen. A laceration is a common injury to suffer while working. In fact, lacerations or skin tears caused by a sharp object, such as sharp metal edges or glass, can be devastating to the worker. Cuts can result from slip and fall on the job, low overhangs at the workplace, tools used by the worker while on the job, exposed jagged surfaces, and many other causes. Wounds from cuts or lacerations have a wide range of seriousness, ranging from surface abrasions to deep gashes, and in some cases can be fatal. Laceration’s long-term effects can also be challenging for the hurt worker. If you have suffered a cut or laceration as the result of a workplace accident in Florida, please contact LeavenLaw’s worker’s compensation team for assistance.
