Safety standards for products in the workplace have drastically improved over the years with better laws & improved technology. However, despite such significant improvements, there still remain wide spread On-the-job product liability risks to workers in the United States. When employees decide to work for a company, it is reasonable for them to expect a certain degree of safety in the workplace. However, not all employers take the necessary steps to sufficiently protect their employees. When this happens, a dangerous workplace can be created.
Unfortunately, a dangerous workplace can result in serious injury, including dangerous diseases and other serious illnesses. If your employer exudes negligence in the workplace and you are injured on the job, workers’ compensation will often provide assistance for medical expenses and lost wages, but may not fully cover the costs of injury. If this occurs to you or a loved one, you might be entitled to compensation.
COMMON WORKPLACE CONDITIONS THAT MAY CAUSE INJURY
- DANGEROUS OR DEFECTIVE MACHINERY, TOOLS, & OTHER PRODUCTS
- DANGEROUS WORK SITE CONDITIONS
- FORKLIFT, CRANE, SCAFFOLDING & VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
- TOXIC PRODUCTS & CHEMICALS
It is important to understand when you might be entitled to potential compensation. By law, your employer is bound to uphold approved safety measures. However, some companies do not practice the law and put their employees at serious risk of injury.
