Knowledgeable Lawyers For Industrial Accidents
Many factors can cause an industrial accident. Faulty equipment, contractor negligence, ignored safety requirements are all common reasons why industrial accidents happen. No matter the cause of an industrial accident, they can cause severe injuries and the death of workers.
At Cohen, Snyder, Eisenberg & Katzenberg, P.A., our attorneys can help you get compensation from those responsible for your accident. Our personal injury and workers’ compensation lawyers have extensive experience with industrial accident injuries. You can discuss your accident with a knowledgeable lawyer at one of our Maryland offices. We can help you determine if there is a third-party responsibility to pay you compensation.
Help For The Many Aspects Of An Industrial Accident
Here are a few common industrial accident scenarios that our attorneys can help you navigate:
- Third-party claims: You may have a third-party claim if another contractor, who is not your employer, causes an industrial accident. When a subcontractor fails to install protective barriers or when a scaffold fails, a falling accident can cause catastrophic injuries or the death of a worker. Leaving debris on a construction site, backing a truck into workers or poorly installing temporary wiring are all common causes of third-party claims.
- Defective and malfunctioning products: Was your industrial accident caused by a defective product? If so, you may have a claim against the product’s manufacturer. A defective forklift, a saw without safety guards or faulty scaffolds can all cause serious injuries.
- Workers’ compensation: If you were injured in a workplace or factory accident, make sure you know your workers’ compensation rights. Our attorneys have handled tens of thousands of workers’ compensation cases. Contact us if you have questions or need help filing a claim.
- Workers’ compensation and third-party claims: You may be wondering if you can file a workers’ compensation claim and a third-party claim. The attorneys at Cohen, Snyder, Eisenberg & Katzenberg, P.A., can handle both types of claims. Collecting a third-party claim will not affect your right to workers’ compensation benefits.
