Our experienced attorneys can protect your rights during contentious claims involving employer negligence.
Employers have a responsibility to keep their workers as safe as possible. In addition to following all relevant OSHA guidelines, they are also expected to provide proper training, enforce safety protocols, and keep all equipment in safe operating condition. When a company fails to take reasonable steps to prevent accidents and injuries, this constitutes negligence.
How Does Employer Negligence Affect My Workers’ Compensation Claim?
Following any type of workplace accident, employees are eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits including:
- Medical treatment
- Temporary disability payments
- Permanent disability payments
- Lump sum payment options
The difference between your average workers’ compensation claim and one involving employer negligence is seen in the employer’s resistance to the claim. Since no company wants to admit to being careless with their workers’ lives, they will do anything they can to undermine your claim or convince you not to file one at all. They may even threaten your job or try to fire you.
