Glendale Construction Accident Lawyer
Assistance for Work-Related Injuries
There are a number of conditions that could potentially lead to an accident at the workplace, such as:
- Slippery floors
- Broken handrails
- Broken stairs
- Broken escalators
- Broken or malfunctioning elevators
- Exposed holes or ditches
- Obstructed walkways
- Falling objects
- Lack of warning signs
- Negligent security
- Exposed electrical wiring or equipment
If you have been injured in an accident at your place of employment, we can help you obtain compensation for injuries. In California, people who suffer an injury while on the job or as a result of their job duties are eligible to apply for workers compensation benefits. Worker’s compensation provides injured workers with compensation and medical benefits while they are unable to work. At Pacific Attorney Group, we have a great deal of experience representing injured workers, and are more than able to help you file a worker’s compensation claim. Furthermore, if for any reason your claim is denied, we can help you file an appeal.
Can I sue my employer for damages?
As injured workers can obtain compensation for their injuries through the workers compensation system, they usually are not allowed to sue their employer. That being said, if an employee is injured by a third party (someone other than the employer), the employee has the right to sue that individual for damages. For example, if an employee working at a supermarket is assaulted by a costumer, the employee can sue the costumer for damages, but cannot sue the employer on grounds of negligent security.
