Advocacy For Those Injured In The Workplace
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.
If you suffered an injury at the workplace, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. However, depending on the circumstances, you may also be able to pursue a civil case against a responsible third party. Additionally, when an employer or co-worker is at fault, there may be an exception to the workers’ compensation exclusivity rule that permits you to bring a civil action against your employer.
