Who Is Liable When A Construction Worker Gets Skin Cancer At Work?

A recent study by researchers at the University of Manchester shows that construction workers are nine times more likely to get skin cancer than people working in other fields. Construction workers often find themselves laboring in concrete areas. That concrete reflects harmful rays, giving them a double-dose that increases the employees' risks of getting cancer.

Who Is Liable For Contact Dermatitis?

Contact dermatitis is an uncomfortable skin condition that leaves exposed body parts inflamed, red, itchy, blistered, hard and cracked. Construction workers commonly acquire this condition after prolonged exposure to an irritating substance. Employers are responsible for protecting their employees from this avoidable situation.

Who Is Liable For Appendicitis Misdiagnosis?

Appendicitis is one of the most common causes of sudden pain in the abdomen. In the United States 250,000 cases a year are reported. The goal of a physician is to make a diagnosis as soon as possible, otherwise chances of complications with an appendectomy, removal of the appendix, increase. Along with it costs associated with being in hospitals go up as well as pain and discomfort. The worst case scenario is infection leading to shock and death. Doctors have an obligation to thoroughly examine patients to avoid misdiagnosing appendicitis or they can face medical malpractice lawsuits.
