Examples of Workplace Injuries
Negligence is the key component of personal injury cases. When it comes to determining the at-fault party for a workplace injury, there are several parties that could be liable including business owners, supervisors, other employees and equipment suppliers. Common workplace injuries include:
Slip & Fall
Slip and fall accidents can be a result of several forms of negligence including, poor lighting, improper training, and bad building maintenance.
Poorly secured or placed objects can result in serious injuries to employees. These accidents are often avoidable if proper care is taken.
Cuts & Lacerations
If you were harmed by faulty equipment or furniture, you could have a personal injury case.
California State Laws
For California work injury cases, common examples of negligence include noncompliance with job safety and health regulations, improper supervision, and poor engineering standards. In California, there are a number of potential claims that can be pursued in a workplace accident personal injury case.
Worker’s compensation benefits and insurance are not the only option that employees can pursue after an injury. Sometimes workers compensation claims don’t fully cover the damages from an injury accident. In these cases, if there is a liable party, a personal injury claim could help cover the additional damages.
