WORKPLACE ACCIDENT ATTORNEY
Work related injuries that occur on the job can fall into several different categories. If a worker is injured as a result of a defective machine or piece of equipment, there may be a product liability claim against the manufacturer or seller of the machine or equipment. If a worker is injured in a motor vehicle accident or collision, there may be a right to sue others who caused the collision.
If a worker is injured due to negligence of the worker’s employer or a co-employee, the law generally bars any legal claim against the employer or co-employee and limits the worker to remedies available under the workers compensation system.
