How can you help if you witness a workplace injury?

Each day when you arrive at work, you are faced with a unique set of risks depending on the type of industry you work in, your responsibilities and even your level of management and expertise. Protecting yourself and the people you work with is a direct result of your attention to following the rules, regulations and protocols put into place by higher authorities. However, as a part of the Minnesota workforce, you never know if you will witness a workplace injury. 

What is carpal tunnel syndrome?

As we continue to become reliant on technology is all aspects of life, many Minnesota jobs will include work on computers and require many hours spent typing. Such situations can take a toll on the hands, wrists and arms, leading to occupational diseases. One of the most common of these is carpal tunnel syndrome.

How can you get the most out of your workers' compensation?

As an integral member of the workforce in Minnesota, you leave for work each day with a list of duties to accomplish and tasks to complete. Depending on the job you have and the industry you work in, you may face unique and inherent risks. Protecting yourself is due in large part to using proper safety equipment, protocols and methods to complete your responsibilities. However, if an accident occurs and you are injured, it is imperative that you are properly educated about how you can get the most out of your workers compensation policy. 

Moving forward after a work zone accident

Workers face a wide variety of threats each day, whether a construction worker falls off of a building, an office worker slips on a wet floor, or an electrician is shocked, to name just a few. Having said that, work zones can be particularly dangerous in Saint Paul, and all over the state of Minnesota. The Fellman Law Office knows that those who are required to work in a work zone may be injured or even killed in a crash, the details of which vary from one incident to another.
