WORKER CRITICALLY INJURED IN INDUSTRIAL BREAD MACHINE ACCIDENT

BALTIMORE COUNTY, Md.—A 45-year-old man suffered critical injuries Jan. 15 when his legs got stuck in an industrial bread machine at a facility in northeast Baltimore.

Firefighters reportedly worked for more than 90 minutes to free the worker, who was transported to Shock Trauma in critical condition.

It is unclear how the man became trapped in the machine or whether any other employees were involved. Authorities have not released any additional details about the incident.

Thoughts on Industrial Accidents from a Personal Injury Lawyer

Workplace accident results in serious personal InjuriesDespite the advent of modern safety standards and the formation of government-sponsored safety organizations, industrial accidents continue to plague our citizens. Employers are the first line of defense in curbing these accidents.

When a personal injury lawyer investigates an industrial accident, they often spend considerable time looking at the employer’s actions prior to the injury. Safety policy is a standard in today’s work environment. Unfortunately, a policy that is not utilized is worthless. Was this organization’s safety policy adhered to by management and employees? Was the policy communicated to the employees through regular safety meetings and training? Did the corporation value safety, or were profits put over people? Exploring these questions often exposes companies that talk the talk, but don’t walk the walk. This is a serious issue that leads to serious injuries.

I am thankful this man’s life was spared. I hope for his full recovery, and strength as he travels the difficult road ahead.
