- Heavy Machinery Accidents: Heavy machinery, such as tractors and cranes, can be complex to operate, and any accidents that involve them can be severe or even fatal.
- Falls From High Up: The construction and agricultural industries may often require working at certain heights. Falling, slipping, or not being properly tied into equipment can cause workers to fall from these heights, resulting in severe or even fatal injuries.
It’s important to note that there are workplace injuries that do not result from specific accidents, such as conditions that arise from repetitive motion. Certain occupations that involve carrying out the same motions over a long period of time can lead to an injury of the tendons, nerves, and muscles.
A lack of proper training, safety protocol design, and adherence to these can increase the risk and severity of workplace accidents that are commonly experienced by undocumented workers. In California, employers have a moral and legal responsibility to create a safe and inclusive workplace for their employees that mitigates the risk of harm or accidents.
If you are an undocumented immigrant facing dangerous workplace conditions, then it is important to work with an experienced lawyer who can help you fight for a safer and more secure workplace.
