Employees Have a Right to Know the Dangers Faced at Work
Although all types of employment pose some degree of risk of accidental injury, certain hazardous and labor-intensive industries routinely place employees at significant risk of serious injury. Workers have a right to know exactly what types of dangers they face so that they can take necessary measures to stay safe. Unfortunately, employers often conceal or fail to reveal the true nature of dangers present at job sites, fail to provide proper safety equipment, and gamble the health and lives of their employees in the name of profit – and this leads to an average of over five million work-related injuries and more than 5,000 fatalities per year that may have been preventable.
When Workers’ Compensation Is Not Enough
When a life-altering disability or fatality removes the main source of income from a family, Workers’ Compensation coverage is typically inadequate to cover medical bills, lost wages, surgeries, and funeral expenses, as well as the loss of essential parental guidance, support, and services that were provided by the injured or deceased to the family. Cranston & Edwards PLLC can help determine if the situation warrants a workplace safety violation claim and, if so, we can work to recover all actual and compensatory damages the law allows. In cases that involve malicious intent, punitive damages may also be awarded.
