Eight Employees Injured in Massive Gas Plant Explosion in Tavares

By on August 7, 2013

State and federal investigators are still trying to piece together why a Blue Rhino propane depot in Lake County went up in flames in Tavares — an incident that left nine injured and resulted in the evacuation of nearby residents as propane tanks used for barbecues exploded and landed up to half a mile away.

Altogether eight employees were injured in the conflagration and the blasts that ensued. The Orlando Sentinel reports that five of the injured workers were listed in critical condition and were rushed to hospitals in Orlando, Ocala and Gainesville. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has opened an official investigation into the incident.

Company officials said that all workers have been accounted for.

Health Workers Have Most Dangerous Jobs in U.S.

By on July 26, 2013

While construction workers and commercial fisherman often receive more press about the dangers inherent in their respective fields, a report just released by Public Citizen reveals that healthcare workers may have the most unsafe workplace conditions in the country.

The report, written by the organization’s Congress Watch division, claims that healthcare workers suffer more musculoskeletal injuries than workers in any other field and that adds up to a bill of some $7 billion annually.

The high injury rate is particularly prevalent among nurses, orderlies, nurses’ aides and attendants. The report suggests that there may be more injuries in the healthcare industry because there are less government inspections of healthcare and social assistance facilities.

Eddie Farah Finds that When it Comes to Worker Safety, Perception is (Almost) Everything

By Eddie Farah on March 20, 2012

Orlando Work Injury StatisticsEvery year, millions of Americans are injured on the job in the United States. Even more disturbing to Florida workers’ compensation attorney Eddie Farah, are the people who go to work every day in the United States and don’t make it back home — some 6,000 people die because of work-related accidents every year.

That is why he found a recent study by the University of Georgia so fascinating. Read the rest »

Disney Wrongful Death Suit Filed Over Monorail Fatality

By on February 5, 2010

The mother of a monorail driver at Disney World who died last July in a crash, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the theme park. The woman says that Disney did not follow its own monorail-safety procedures and that is what killed her 21-year-old son. Her son was in the front of a monorail, moving the car in reverse through track switches that were supposed to move it eventually onto the system’s maintenance bay. But another monorail was backing up over a track switch at the same time and the track switch was never realigned. The train went into reverse and into the resort’s Epcot line and into the young man’s vehicle.

His mother contends it would be safer to have twin controls in the rear cab giving the operator a clear view when he backs up. Read the rest »

Florida Supreme Court Helps Injured Workers

By Eddie Farah on October 25, 2008

The Florida Supreme Court ruled this week that a lawyer representing an injured worker is entitled to “reasonable” fees.

Ever since a controversial 2003 reform of the state’s workers’ compensation law, lawyer’s fees have been capped. That means most lawyers understandably shy away from workers’ comp cases. We at Farah & Farah do not.

The state Supreme Court ruled 5-0 in the case of Emma Murray vs. Mariner Health Care. Read the rest »

By Eddie Farah on June 18, 2008

Last December 19th, a chemical plant on the Northside of Jacksonville exploded killing four people inside and leveling the facility.
