We Represent Victims Of Welding Accidents
At Rapoport Weisberg & Sims P.C. our experienced lawyers represent individuals who have suffered severe injuries in iron and welding accidents.

We Work For Maximum Compensation In Every Situation
Installing steel beams and building the framework of large residential and commercial structures require special skill. The work is very dangerous and exposes workers to risks such as:
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Injuries caused by falling debris or swinging rebar
- Equipment accidents
- Electrocution and burn injuries
- Exposure to welding rod fumes and manganese exposure
Ironworker and welding accidents often lead to severe injuries, disfigurement and even death. To prevent these injuries, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and state agencies have instituted safety guidelines regarding construction sites. When an employer encourages or allows unsafe practices, all the workers at that site are placed at risk.
Filing A Claim Can Improve Worker Safety
By holding negligent parties accountable for the injuries they cause, you help ironworkers and welders everywhere. Whether the negligent party is the maker of a defective tool or a construction company that employed untrained or inexperienced crane operators, the conduct that led to the serious injury needs to be addressed. We have a long record of obtaining successful jury verdicts and settlements to help our clients get the justice they deserve.
