November 21, 2008, Daytona Beach, FL (JusticeNewsFlash.com)–Aggressive employee injury advocate in the Florida courts, Daytona Beach worker injury attorney, Allan Ziffra, reports 100,000 laborers are injured from falls on construction sites each year according to the United States government department of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Ironworker Drew Mecutchen, 44, fell from a five-story construction site at a new hospital in North Philadelphia last December and died from his injuries.

Concerned Volusia County employee injury attorney, Allan Ziffra, with the Daytona Beach, FL workers’ compensation law firm of Rue & Ziffra informs Americans that workers’ compensation is a benefit available to nearly all employees in Florida who suffer an injury at the workplace or while on the job. Ziffra asserts the following steps need to be taken by all workers injured on the job:
-Immediately report any injury, no matter how minimal, to your direct supervisor
-Access medical care when the injury occurs
-Document your wages
-Document all of your injuries and any symptoms.
Assertive Central Florida construction accident litigator, Ziffra, is urging American workers to know their employee rights. Workers’ compensation law was established to safeguard employees who are injured on the job. The State of Florida Workers’ Compensation Law functions as a safety net, allowing workers to quickly receive pay so their families are not financially devastated by their injuries.
