All employees have the right to work in an environment where they feel safe, and where they don’t have to worry about getting injured or killed in an accident.
Employers have a responsibility to keep their offices and worksites free of hazards that can cause injury or illness, but sometimes they don’t always follow through.
Workplace accidents occur every day and violate regulations imposed by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), which can include using dangerous equipment, failing to train workers properly, or not following standard safety protocol.

More than 3 million workers were injured and 4,500 workers died from workplace accidents in 2013, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. While workplace injuries often occur after a single accident, many can take years for symptoms to appear as a result of prolonged movements or use.
Workplace accidents can also occur on and off work premises, workers can be injured while traveling or on the road.
And while many associate workplace accidents with the construction industry, which places its workers at higher risk of getting injured, they can even happen in everyday offices.
Workers can also acquire injuries from being electrocuted by hazardous wiring or burns from workplace fires and explosions. They can also become affected by diseases from exposure to toxic materials, such as asbestos.
Our attorneys are well-versed on state labor laws and OSHA regulations, which means we can assess your situation and determine who is at fault for your workplace injuries.
Workers have options when it comes to receiving financial assistance after an accident, such as workers’ compensation insurance or filing a lawsuit. Our team can help you learn more about your accident and provide you with options should you choose to move forward.
Over the years, we’ve recovered millions of dollars for injured victims after they’re acquired medical bills, lost wages or future earning capacity, property damage, and pain and suffering. We can also help you cover the costs of funerals and burials if you lost a loved one in a workplace accident.
We’re standing by if you need compassionate care and fierce advocacy during this dark and vulnerable time. Employers and insurance companies shouldn’t be let off the hook – they have a responsibility to keep their environments safe for you.
