If you work in an industrial setting, you know one thing to be true: Safety is of utmost importance.
While anybody can be injured at his or her place of employment, this is even more so the case if you are an industrial worker. Fortunately, by taking the right steps, you can lessen the risk of injury.
Here are some of the most important questions to answer if you have been involved in an industrial accident:
— Was another contractor, not your employer, responsible for the accident that caused your injuries?
— Was your industrial accident the result of a defective product?
— Are you familiar with your workers’ compensation rights, including how to file a claim?
— Are you in position to collect workers’ compensation benefits while also making a third party claim?
These types of questions are not always easy to answer, as you may not have all the information you need to understand your situation. Even so, they need to be addressed at some point to ensure that your rights are being protected.
