Work Related Accidents in the US

According to a new report from the AFL-CIO, more than 100 people in the United States die every day as a result of work related accidents.

An article in the Huffington Post states that, “Americans are 271 times more likely to die from a workplace accident than from a terrorist attack.”  Not only  that, but about 3.8 million Americans suffer from work-related injuries and diseases each year,  and that number may even be higher due to underreporting.

“Workplace safety and injuries in the workplace are a huge issue in the United States,” exclaims Alvin H. Broome of NYC personal injury firm, Alvin H. Broome & Associates.  “Workplace safety is not monitored closely enough and employees need to be better protected from harm.”
