Employer Negligence

Many on the job injuries are due to faulty equipment and/or poor company safety practices. Employers have an obligation to provide a safe working environment; not only is it morally right and good for productivity, it is also a legal requirement. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and/or the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) are the government agencies in charge of enforcing basic workplace safety requirements.

Despite federal regulations and/or company safety policies, some employers fail to provide their workers with enough training and safety equipment. As a result of this negligence, it is the employees who are hurt.
Whether accidents occurred on or off the jobsite, our personal injury lawyers will take care of you. If your injury resulted in a short or long-term disability, we will investigate the incident and explain what you are entitled to beyond workers’ compensation.

Employees have the right to a safe work environment. A company’s risk management policy requires that they make workers’ safety the top priority.

This includes making certain that:

  • Equipment is working properly and is well cared for
  • Good housekeeping practices are followed
  • Employees are adequately trained
  • Personal safety devices are supplied
