Injuries on the Job
Being hurt while on the job often leads to claims under workers compensation laws. However, workers compensation is often times inadequate for the injuries suffered. If an injury was caused by a third-party or a piece of work equipment, you may be able to recover additional money above and beyond what you are entitled to under workers compensation.
Even with the regulations mandated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), injuries on the job happen every day and vary greatly depending on the job and circumstances. Common work related accidents that may be caused by third parties for which you are able to recover include:
- Collapsing structures or scaffoldings;
- Over the road truck related accidents; and
- Defective equipment such as ladders.
Manufacturers, delivery companies or even subcontractors are often time at fault for causing injuries. Our lawyers are familiar with the complexities of on the job injuries and will help you recover the compensation you need and deserve.
Our attorneys will analyze the circumstances and nature of your on the job accident and resulting injuries to help you understand your options and rights. We then work to collect the damages that you are entitled to from the person or party who should be held liable for your injuries. These efforts are usually in addition to any workers compensation claim you are making or benefits you are receiving.
