Cuts & Lacerations Claims
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.
Laceration and Cut Wounds
Common lacerations resulting from injuries on the job include cuts on the,
face, torso as well as the legs, arms, hand and fingers. To try and prevent
permanent scaring, cuts on the face and head should receive immediate
attention and more extensive care. A deep gash can go through skin down
to the bone, perhaps damaging tendons and muscles in route. When facing
such challenges, the last thing you, as the hurt worker can do, is to
let the worker’s compensation carrier direct incorrect or, worse
yet, block treatment for your workplace related cut. Superficial lacerations
can at times even lead to more problematic infections which can cause
the amputation of limbs, severe illness or, in the most drastic circumstances,
death. If you feel that you are getting incorrect treatment for your workplace
cut or laceration, please immediately contact the attorneys at LeavenLaw,
your Florida Workers’ Comp law firm. We will look forward to helping you!
After your accident, you Workers’ Compensation doctor referred by
the insurance company should direct you to a medical professional in cases
involving deep wounds. Wounds infected from workplace injury can also
cause major problems. Infection many times is and should be the most serious
concern in the first few days following a cut or deep gash caused on the
job. If signs of infection appear, including severe pain, chills, illness,
irritation and discoloration around the edges of your wound, you need
to contact both your doctor and the worker’s compensation carrier.
