Workplace accidents remain an unfortunate reality, emphasizing the critical need for reliable legal support in such situations. At Dougherty Leventhal & Price (DLP), we stand ready to assist in any work-related incident.

The statistics from the Bureau of Labor concerning workplace injuries and illnesses in 2021 are staggering: over 2.6 million recorded cases of nonfatal injuries and illnesses. However, these figures only reflect reported cases, hinting that the actual number might be significantly higher. Shockingly, there were over five thousand fatal work-related injuries reported in the same year. As the workforce gradually returns after the COVID-19 pandemic, experts anticipate a notable surge in these rates. From machinery mishaps to vehicle incidents, slips, and falls to structural accidents, statistics reveal that 3 out of 100 workers endure work-related injuries.
