Work Injury in 2021? Call BNI Law
It is expected of any employer to keep a safe work environment, but what happens if you were to incur a work injury in 2021? An employee is supposed to be trained by their employers whatever they can to do things safely. So assuming that an employee is acting within those safety limits, they likely will not experience a work injury in 2021 unless their working environment was not safe to begin with but if work conditions are made unsafe, they can result in a work-related injury. If you are hurt on the job despite your best efforts to maintain safety, and if this is due to working conditions or situations that could have clearly been safer, it is in your best interest to call the law firm of Brotman Nusbaum and Ibrahim. Our team of expert attorneys can help you fight for compensation if you were hurt on the job this year due to conditions outside of your control.
Imagine working at a construction site, being trained specifically in the use of one kind of tool, or job. Then a superior comes to you and tasks you with performing a job with a tool you weren’t trained for, or that is untested and unsafe. In this situation, if you were to incur a work injury in 2021, the employer would surely be liable. Even injuries relating to over-exhaustion can be the result of poor workplace conditions, Our lawyers can help you with a consultation to see if this might be the case
Workmen’s Compensation may cover basic medical bills, but what about legal fees, time lost at work, and emotional damages? Insurance companies on contract with the employer will certainly attempt to deny funding on the ground an employee is at fault, it’s their job to try and prove this. There are a lot of different cases where an employee can suffer an injury while working, and some have more gray areas than others, which is why it’s good to have a law firm on your side. For example, if you have to drive for work, and get involved in an accident, it might not be so simple to figure out which party is at fault. But if you can prove it was not due to your negligence, and you were driving the car as part of your job, then a court may make the employer liable. This is just one example of a rare case, but each claim varies from person to person.
