Unsafe Work Environment – Work Place Accidents

Unsafe Work Environment – Work Place Accidents

You can consult our personal injury lawyers anytime you think that something is making you sick at work or that you are being made to work in an unsafe environment. Workers’ compensation is given to an employee who gets injured in the workplace and typically, employers provide such kind of insurance to benefit their employees to cover their medical bills and loss of earnings if they get involved in an accident while at work. A Workplace Free From Personal Injury

A good work environment must always be safe to encourage you to be more productive as well as to prevent you from being subjected to personal injury. Your employer has the responsibility to make sure that no harm will come to you during your shift in the office, warehouse, or even outside—if you are doing field work or are in transit during work hours.work place accident

Some employers may even knowingly put you in harm’s way or may be negligent enough to cause you to get ill or injured while at work. When this happens, you should know that you are not only entitled to workers’ compensation but also to run after negligent or liable individuals, companies and employers for their hand in your accident or injuries as well.

Your employer must never subject you to unsafe environment, chemicals or make you do tasks that you have not trained for. Furthermore, all equipment and machineries must always be maintained and must be operated only by individuals with the proper attire and training. Your work area must be safe from other toxic substances such as asbestos, black molds, etc. and you should never be exposed to potentially harmful energies such as radiation.

Other things that can potentially injure you are defective products and equipment used at work and your injury lawyer can help determine if you can file a lawsuit against the manufacturer of that product or equipment based on the injuries that you have sustained.

Why Hire Personal Injury Lawyers?

Our injury attorneys can determine if you will be entitled to get workers’ compensation and if you can reimburse for damages and suffering from others’ negligence or wrongdoing as well. State laws may vary slightly but you can be assured that you will be represented correctly by a local law firm that is an expert in injury cases.

Always remember that you should be provided with a safe working environment, and if you employer fails to do so and caused you to suffer injuries, make sure to exercise your right and consult with professionals.personal injury lawyers

After seeking proper medical attention, do not take too long to decide and give us a call so we can help you assess if you are entitled to workers’ compensation and if applicable, for pain and suffering and loss of ability to earn. We can also help you collect from a state fund by filing a civil lawsuit against an employer who does not provide employees with workers’ compensation insurance. Our Law Firm personal injury hotline is always available for anyone who needs assistance for these kinds of cases.

Our Lawyers have a Great Deal of Experience

Our Lawyers have a Great Deal of Experience

Our lawyers have a great deal of experience handling the legal issues arising out of personal injury cases in Texas. For example, we handle cases involving injuries caused by: airplanes, apartment buildings, commercial buildings, construction sites, public transportation (i.e. buses, subways, trains), trips and falls, defective products, etc
accident lawyers
One of the reasons the Law Firm of Fred L. Abramsis able to efficiently handle a broad range of personal injury cases is that many of the attorneys “of counsel” to us, (as listed in our “Attorney Profiles” link), have not only previously represented the interests of a wide range of clients, but have also had an emphasis on litigation.

National Reach for Personal Injury Claims

As can be seen from a look at some of the personal injury lawyers and medial malpractice attorneys we are associated with, we are able to handle personal injury, wrongful death, negligence and medical malpractice matters that involve foreign locales. For example, it is not uncommon for a personal injury case to have a foreign dimension to it, such as injury causing products manufactured outside the U.S., or acts of negligence caused by a foreigner. One of our “of counsel” is an English Solicitor who has associations with law firms in over 60 countries which enables us to proceed in foreign jurisdictions should the need arise. Similarly, being associated with firms across the United States provides the same breadth of jurisdictional access. While our firm is based in the City, we are able to handle matters anywhere in the country. We have, by way of example, “of counsel” relationships with law offices in Ohio and San Juan, Puerto Rico. This kind of geographic reach can prove useful where, on occasion, it is necessary for a accident lawyer to use the services of attorneys with out of state civil law expertise.

For example, among others, our personal injury lawyers have represented:AT&T;, Puerto Rico Insurance Fund, Crum & Forster Insurance Company, Royal Insurance Company, American International Adjustment Company (AIAC), Universal Insurance of Puerto Rico, Kimberly Clark of Puerto Rico, etc..

It is also true that our experience as personal injury lawyers has lead to a firm philosophy in which we adopt an aggressive approach in all of our personal injury cases in virtually all phases of their litigation, be it trial, pre-trial, or appellate practice. personal injury attorneys

Our personal injury case experience has shown that an assertive posture by our Attorneys is especially important. This posture is maintained throughout all of our personal injury cases without regard to whether your case involves the complexities of: birth injury, traumatic brain injury, wrongful death, product’s liability case, etc.; or whether your case is more straight forward because it involves a slip and fall on a City sidewalk.

It is very important for you to know your legal rights, and essentially, be able to participate by keeping informed of all your personal rights. With this, the goal of our attorneys is to give vital information and assist you in terms of explaining details with regard to important legal matters that can help you with your claims and any alternative therein. This is the reason why you need not just an ordinary law resource site but the one that can give answers to your questions.

We have found that this aggressive approach generally gives us an advantage over our adversaries, many of whom are not prepared or are otherwise gun-shy when it comes to actually going to trial on your case.
