Workplace Back Injuries
There can be many things that can put you at risk for a workplace back injury. For instance, if you function in a hazardous role or face exposure to dangerous situations, it can heighten your chances of running into trouble. Most employers do their best to ensure employees have safe work conditions. In other cases, however, some employers do not take the necessary precautions to guarantee employees' safety, leading to accidents in the workplace.
An example of this is if an employer has been told about dangerous physical hazards and fails to address them. This can present a two-fold issue that prevents employees from performing their duties and puts them in harm's way. Situations like these can indicate that the employer has displayed negligence, and sound legal counsel can help state your case should you sustain an injury.
Another potential reason for needing assistance with an injury is if you've suffered a slip-and-fall accident. These kinds of incidents refer to injuries sustained from environmental hazards, like if you've fallen because you didn't see a spilled liquid on the ground. However, every case is unique, and it's essential to get sound legal advice.
If you've experienced workplace negligence or have been a slip-and-fall accident victim, we're here to help you. The first step in finding out what compensation you may be eligible for is to talk to one of our experts during a no-cost case review. Please call us today at 423-443-3973.
