How Workplace Accidents Can Occur
Workplace accidents resulting in catastrophic injuries can be caused by:
- Defective machinery and equipment
- Structural problems
- Failure to abide by safety and OSHA regulations
- Negligent subcontractors
- Other unsafe work practices
When A Personal Injury Claim Is Possible
Your employer is liable for workers’ compensation benefits [link], sometimes referred to as “workman’s compensation”. The workers’ comp system is difficult to navigate, and we will walk you through the process from start to finish.
Workers’ compensation is often not sufficient to offset your medical bills, lost wages, and other financial costs arising from a workplace accident. If you can prove that the negligence of your employer or a third party contributed to the accident that injured you, it is possible to file a personal injury claim.
