When you go to work, you expect to do your job in a safe and hazard-free environment. Employers are required to minimize hazardous risks in the workplace and warn workers when a hazard cannot be eliminated. Unfortunately, employers sometimes fail in this duty to their employees.
Workplace hazards come in many forms, ranging from unsafe machinery and falling objects to flying debris and toxic exposure. Any one of these can result in a debilitating and potentially deadly industrial accident.
If you have been injured due to working in a hazardous environment, you may be entitled to file a claim. Speak with one of our Industrial Accident lawyers to learn more.
