Cases involving workplace injuries present unique legal and factual issues to be considered. Depending on the parties involved various forms of insurance may be available to assist the injured party. This includes workers compensation insurance, liability insurance, and automobile or trucking insurance to name a few. At times more than one defendant may be legally responsible for causing the injury. This depends on the various contract terms between parties and whether a defendant had any control over the injured employee or the person, equipment or situation that gave rise to the injury.
Below are a few examples of the kinds of workplace injury cases we have handled.
