Serving Buffalo, New York

Many industrial-related jobs, where workers use welding rods, are located in the Niagara and Buffalo, New York area. These environments can be hazardous, exposing workers to harmful fumes and chemicals over time. But dangers aren’t limited to just the materials. Industrial machinery, if not properly maintained or operated, can also lead to serious injuries. Material suppliers and others who fail to prioritize worker safety can be held liable for illnesses, welding injuries, and even injuries caused by malfunctioning industrial machinery. If you’ve been injured in an industrial accident, consulting with an industrial machinery injury attorney can be necessary in navigating the legal complexities and securing the compensation you deserve. If your injury occurs specifically from a scaffold accident, contacting a Buffalo scaffold accident lawyer can be particularly beneficial, as they’ll understand the nuances of these cases and fight for the compensation you deserve..

Welding rod-related jobs can be dangerous due to a harmful metal called manganese that is used as a filler in welding rods. When the manganese is heated up enough to be welded, it produces highly toxic fumes. These fumes are odorless and colorless and have been linked to nervous system disorders for over 150 years. In fact, in 1837 a disease called “Manganism” was diagnosed for workers who developed symptoms that are similar to Parkinson’s disease. Over time, the illness progresses and begins to affect mental capabilities as well.
