If a workplace injury occurs as a result of co-employee negligence, or a dangerous condition created by the employer, a victim is generally limited to making a recovery through a Worker’s Compensation claim. One exception to this rule are “offshore” injuries, which you can learn more about in the Admiralty/Maritime section of our website.
Another exception is when a dangerous, or defective, condition at the workplace is created by someone other than an employee or co-employee. If you were injured as a result of someone else’s negligence while you are on the job, you may be entitled to damages for your loses.
Any worker who suffers a serious injury at work should explore his/her legal rights. If you or someone close to you has been the victim of a workplace, please contact our firm for a free consultation.Click here for free case evaluation
