Your right to compensation following a workplace accident

Industrial accidents should never take place, but the truth is that they do and put many lives at risk when they happen. For instance, if you work in a factory or manufacturing plant that handles grains, you could be involved in a dust explosion. These kinds of serious events can be avoided with proper safety precautions. However, if the safety methods needed aren't used, the workplace can quickly become hazardous.

If you're hurt at work, you have the right to ask for compensation. You can seek workers' compensation. If there is a third party involved, you may want to make a claim against that person or company. For example, if you're working at a construction site and are hit by a machine being driven by a third-party contractor, both the contractor and your employer may be able to be held liable for your injuries.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration works with the government and makes regulations that your employer has to follow. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 was put into place to prevent workplace accidents, illnesses and deaths. When an accident happens at the workplace that results in injuries or deaths, the OSHA comes to investigate.

The organization may decide to penalize your employer if safety violations are found. For example, if you lose a finger due to a machine being unguarded and blades being exposes, the OSHA could fine the company for that hazard. Your attorney can also use that evidence when helping you seek proper compensation. Our website has more information on this topic and others.
