Our experienced attorneys can protect your rights during contentious claims involving employer negligence.
Some workplace accidents truly are unforeseeable, unpreventable flukes. But in many other cases, accidents result from employer negligence. Disregarding OSHA standards, failing to maintain their premises, failing to perform proper maintenance on vehicles and machinery, and not enforcing safety protocols are all possible examples of negligent behavior that could allow employees to get hurt.
How Does Employer Negligence Affect My Workers’ Compensation Claim?
Workers’ compensation claims are not dependent on employer negligence. In fact, employees can seek benefits even if they caused their own accident. Benefits include:
- Medical treatment
- Temporary disability payments
- Permanent disability payments
- Lump sum payment options
Employers often seem less than thrilled about assisting injured employees with their workers’ compensation claims. But if your claim involves exposing employer negligence, you can expect even more resistance to your claim. In some cases, employers even attempt to retaliate against the worker filing the claim by firing them or demoting them.
