Misconduct by Co-Workers

When a worker’s action violates workplace policy, procedures, rules or sometimes, simple common sense, their actions can create a hazardous work environment for their co-workers.  

Particularly if an employee removes a known safety device, or is otherwise grossly negligent, you may have a claim that is not covered otherwise barred by the exclusivity provision of the worker’s compensation laws.  

This is a very complex area of the law, so if you have been injured by the gross negligence of a co-worker, let us evaluate whether you have a claim outside of or in addition to worker’s compensation.
