According to the U.S. Department of Labor, there were nearly 3 million nonfatal job injuries in 2014. Even more alarming, “Over 800 Latino workers were killed from work-related injuries in 2014–on average, more than 15 deaths a week or two Latino workers killed every single day of the year, all year long.” Sadly, those sobering numbers come as no surprise to workers in Eastern Washington.
Abeyta Nelson Injury Law represents workers against those responsible for on the job injuries. These can include a careless general contractor, a manufacturer of defective equipment, a landowner who provided an unsafe environment, or an equipment operator who caused an injury. Whether it’s falling from a ladder in an orchard, or getting struck by a falling hammer at a construction site, a Washington worker who is hurt on the job is entitled to benefits for wage loss, medical treatment, and rehabilitation services resulting from the injury.
