Considering that Brunswick’s metropolitan area is the twelfth-largest in the state of Georgia, one can only imagine the vast array of businesses and various job positions that contribute to the city’s economy. Many residents of Brunswick do not want to admit that injury or illness may arise out of and in the course of different kinds of employment throughout the bustling city. Despite safety regulations and rules of procedure being implemented by state and federal entities, some employers, managers, or contractors fail to maintain a risk-free working environment.
When an employee suffers an injury while on the job, whether minor or catastrophic, a variety of factors not only influence their physical and mental well-being, but also their financial stability. When an employer proves negligent in letting safety hazards go unnoticed or if employees are not properly trained and personal injury or wrongful death result as a consequence, workers’ compensation benefits may not be substantial enough to fully compensate injured victims or surviving family members of wrongful death victims.
