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, workers 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 a worker to bring an action against their 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.
