Commenting on the recent article, the Los Angeles personal injury firm celebrates the record safety numbers, and notes the powerful deterrent effects personal injury lawsuits can have.

Injury lawsuits can serve as a powerful deterrent against unsafe work environments.

As time goes on, and more accidents occur, workplaces get better and better at recognizing where and when potential injuries can occur, and rightfully implement safeguards to prevent similar injuries from happening again.

According to an article published November 24th on BusinessInsurance.com, the California workplace injury rate in 2014 was the lowest it has been in 13 years. While the 460,700 reported injuries is only a slight decrease from the number the year before, it is significantly lower than the 694,100 cases filed in 2002, the highpoint in that same timespan. According to the Law Offices of Burg and Brock, Inc., a top-tier personal injury law firm in Southern California, this statistic is great news for all California workers, who should all be entitled to a safe and controlled working environment. Cameron Yadidi Brock, the firm’s head litigator, explains that this low number is a result of the natural progression of workplace safety. He notes that, as time goes on, and more accidents occur, workplaces get better and better at recognizing where and when potential injuries can occur, and rightfully implement safeguards to prevent similar injuries from happening again.

Mr. Brock explains that, while safety measures would ideally be implemented before a single person is injured, it is natural for humans to learn from their mistakes. He says that it is often the case that the signs, warnings, and regulations implemented in the workplace to prevent an injury typically have a story behind them. Often, these lessons learned involve a personal lawsuit that is filed after the initial injury. Mr. Brock also explains that, while society might hope that an injury alone is enough for a business to make a change, it often takes the serious financial deterrent of a personal injury lawsuit to push these companies into implementing these new safety measures. Eventually, when enough businesses recognize the weight of this deterrent, changes can be made to proactively stop injuries from occurring.

Mr. Brock explains that, as time goes on, industries can more thoroughly patch any holes in the safety of their working environment, and move closer and closer toward a completely safe working environment. Yet, he says that a world with zero workplace injuries is unlikely, and those injured will likely continue to need a skilled legal team to get them the justice and compensation they deserve.

In addition to workplace injury lawsuits, Mr. Brock and the rest of the skilled legal team at the Law Offices of Burg and Brock, Inc. represent victims of car accidents, motorcycle accidents, head injuries, and a wide variety of injuries caused by the negligence of another party.
