Injured While On The Job?

You had trusted the safety of your work environment, until you suffered an injury. You are not alone. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2.8 million workplace injuries occurred in 2017, and 5,147 workers were killed on the job throughout the US.

What is a Work Injury?

A work injury occurs when an employee is injured from an on the job activity. This includes social events, company parties/trips and other events that are outside the company’s premises.

If on the job, employers often expose their employees to hazards. While companies should have safety policies in place, many often fail to do so. If a company fails to provide safe work environments for their employees, they should be held liable for the injuries that occur.

The Most Common Injuries Result From:
  • Defective products that do not work properly and are dangerous.
  • Unsafe environments that cause slip and fall accidents or construction accidents.
  • Falling or moving objects.
  • Overexertion in lifting.
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals and substances (gases, liquids, solids, mists and fumes). The most common chemicals include polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB’s), dioxin, benzene, carbon monoxide, methanol, hydrogen sulfide and more.

When working in unsafe environments, the type of injury will determine the strength of your claim.

Third-Party Work Accident Cases

Unfortunately, coverage offered by workers compensation insurance does not always provide employees who have been injured on the job with sufficient benefits. While California laws restrict the amount of compensation that victims are entitled to receive from Workers Compensation insurance, many cases allow injured employees to simultaneously file a claim with a responsible third party, so long as the third party is not an employer. Known as “third-party” cases, filing a third-party claim enables the victims to obtain maximum compensation.

An example is if an employee has been injured at work due to a defective product. Since the employee was injured on the job, not only will he or she be able to file a workers compensation claim, but he or she will also be able to file a claim against a third party, such as the manufacturer or retailer of the defective product.

Contact the Law Offices of Steve Mehr

Injured workers should contact a dedicated work injury attorney who can obtain reimbursement from all sources of compensation. If filing a third party claim, it is important to identify all the relevant parties involved. Identifying all relevant parties requires a superior ability to analyze facts and circumstances surrounding the incident. Employees injured in third-party lawsuits are entitled to recover the following expenses:

  • Current and future medical expenses;
  • Loss of earnings and future earning capacity;
  • Property damage;
  • Compensation for pain and suffering.
