NEGLIGENCE

Workplace Negligence

Workers on industrial and construction sites face potentially dangerous work situations every day. Despite numerous state and federal regulations, hundreds of thousands of employees are injured or killed in work-related accidents in the United States each year. A job injury is most often covered by workers compensation insurance and if a claim is filed it is usually resolved without much fanfair. However, if the accident that caused the job injury involved negligence on the part of the employer, a fellow employee or a product, tool, or machine produced by a third party, then a workplace negligence lawsuit may be filed. Should the workplace negligence claim carry on for an extended period of time, the injured worker (the plaintiff) may suffer financially.
