One of Virginia’s Leading Families of Law
Workplace Accident Attorneys
Work Injury Lawyers Virginia
Dedicated employees across the State of Virginia put in hard work for their companies every day, and should reasonably expect that the employer will, in turn, keep them safe from potential hazards. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and thousands of workers are injured every year on the job site due to negligence on the part of another party.
The most dangerous industry to work in is construction, and work-related accidents, injuries, and deaths are very common. In fact, approximately 1 in 10 construction workers are hurt every year. While worker’s compensation insurance is designed to cover your expenses such as medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation, and more, you also may be able to pursue the recovery of additional compensation from any liable third party through a personal injury claim.
Most Common Work-Related Accidents
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Vehicle Accidents
- Chemical Spills and Toxic Exposure
- Repetitive Stress Injuries
- Fires and Explosions
- Falling Objects
- Defective Machinery Accidents
- Unsafe Work Environment
Third Party Responsibility
Whether you work in a clearly hazardous profession or an indoor office environment, the potential for third party negligence and resulting injury can be present almost anywhere. If someone else’s failure to abide by proper safety rules and regulations has led to your injury, it absolutely should be their responsibility to ensure that you are given the resources needed to properly recover and move on with your life.
If you are injured in the workplace, the extent of your injuries is not always known. Many states have a small time frame for which to report an injury in order to receive coverage, so it’s important to make a report right away. If you have suffered an injury at work contact us today so we can help determine if your employer or a third party entity is responsible and pursue compensation.
third Party Liability
When a person becomes injured because of a negligent third party either by action or omission, this is referred to as “Third-party Liability”.
This claim does not place blame on the employer, supervisor or co-worker.
Common third party liability claims are usually the result of car accidents in between work sites, manufacturing defects, design defects, accidents at a job site owned by someone other than your employer.
Third party claims will compensate you for non-economic damages and punitive damages, whereas Workers Compensation will not. You must prove negligence or fault of the third party.
