Viral photo shows the importance of safety glasses and how little value eyesight has under workers’ compensation in Michigan.

Popular Mechanics published an interesting and terrifying photo about why you need to wear safety glasses. It shows a man with a shard from an exploding angle grinder disc stuck in his safety glasses. A picture is worth a thousand words so check out the original Reddit post and discussion for the image.

We are strong advocates for safety in the workplace. The best way to avoid problems with workers’ compensation is to avoid getting hurt.

Safety glasses are probably the cheapest and easiest way to protect your eyes. The U.S Department of Health & Human Services estimates 1,000 eye injuries occur in American workplaces each year. Almost 70% of these eye injuries occur from falling or flying objects, or sparks striking the eye.

What is your eyesight worth? Michigan law only guarantees 162 weeks of wage replacement for 1 eye. Losing 80% of your vision constitutes total loss of that eye. Permanent loss of sight in both eyes triggers additional benefits under total and permanent disability. Medical can be paid for life.

Michigan Workers Comp Lawyers never charges a fee to evaluate a potential case. Our law firm has represented injured and disabled workers exclusively for more than 35 years. Call (855) 221-2667 for a free consultation today.
