Being injured while on the job is something no one should have to deal with. However, all too many people are hurt while at work. Although our jobs should allow us to work in relative safety, this is sadly not always the case. Employer negligence can lead to workplace injury, leaving a worker unable to keep earning a wage while they recover from their injuries. Injured workers have rights, and one of those rights is to file a lawsuit against their employer if they are hurt while at work and their employer’s negligence contributed to their injury occurring. If you need a work injury lawyer, contact Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C. to learn more about your legal options as an injury victim.
People in all fields of employment can become injured on the job. From office workers to warehouse employees, any field of employment can be hazardous, especially if the employer is negligent in the interest of protecting their bottom line. For example, if an employer demands you operate a forklift but you are not certified to do so and you end up injured while attempting to drive the lift, your employer could be considered liable for your injuries for insisting you operate a machine you were not familiar with. In another example, if you are asked to do heavy lifting on a regular basis that was not a part of your job description as a clerical worker and you sustain a back injury from all this lifting, your employer could be considered negligent in civil court and thus, responsible for the pain and suffering you endured because of your injuries.
