Workplace And Industrial Accidents

Workers are often injured on the job. Workplace accidents can be caused by employer or co-worker negligence, negligence by a worker from a separate employer, equipment malfunction and other unsafe conditions.

Some people think that workers' compensation is the only remedy they have for workplace injuries. However, in many situations, you may have a right to pursue a civil case against a responsible third party. In other instances, when an employer or co-worker is at fault, there may be an exception to the workers' compensation exclusivity rule that will allow you to bring an action against your employer. The laws are complex in this area, and each case needs to be evaluated by a professional who is familiar with the nuances that arise in workplace injury accidents.

  • Aviation accidents
