In 1999 I won lifetime benefits for a dye and ink mixer named Jimmy Blackwell (not his real name) who had hurt his back in 1993. In 2017, Jimmy's wife visited me to report that he had died of pulmonary fibrosis. Jimmy hadn't worked in many decades, so I advised his wife that it would be a long-shot, at best, to relate his pulmonary fibrosis to his occupational exposure as an ink mixer decades earlier for the purpose of winning benefits for her. Nevertheless, I took on the case, warning Mrs. Blackwell that it would take years for a decision.

Demasiados accidentes de construcción, demasiadas muertes

Esto es una vergüenza.

Work-related fatality numbers dropped in 2011

In 2011, fewer employees experienced the kinds of catastrophic workplace injuries that ultimately lead to death than were suffered in the previous year. Though this may seem like a small victory, the statistic is hopefully the start of a positive trend toward greater safety in the workplace.
