Workplace accidents happen for a variety of reasons, such as the violation of a safety standard or regulation , managerial negligence or use of defective equipment. Many workplace accident cases present complex issues that require careful investigation by a professional who is familiar with the nuances that can arise in this context. A worker who suffers an injury at the workplace, may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits. However, depending on the circumstances, he or she may also be able to pursue a civil case against a responsible third-party. Additionally, when an employer or coworker is at fault, there may be an exception to the Workers' Compensation exclusivity rule that permits a worker to bring a civil action against their employer.
