An accident lawyer sees many workplace accidents, from many different occupations and of many different varieties. Some of these accidents and injuries arise from unforeseen circumstances, where little could have been done to prevent them. Many accidents, however, are avoidable. In Canada alone, workplace injuries have fallen from 50 injuries per 1,000 workers in 1987 to 15 injuries per 1,000 workers in 2010. By implementing safer workplaces procedures and staying informed, a measurable difference in safety is attainable, according to accident injury lawyers.
