Duties of Employers in the Workplace
In many cases, property owners or business managers do not regularly check up on their premises to make sure it is safe for people to access or utilize. When they are either ignorant or careless about taking care of a known problem on public premises, this inevitably leads to a dangerous accident, or even a fatality.
Whether or not your manager or supervisor was aware of the risk at your workplace location, they ultimately have the duty to provide a safe environment for their employees. Therefore, your employer is required by law to ensure that the work equipment and location premises are up-to-code. Any dangerous areas on the premises must have clearly marked warning signs, and all employees should be given ample training and instruction, with periodic check-ups to make sure everything is in order. Our knowledgeable attorney can help you in collecting evidence demonstrating whether any of these reasonable duties were neglected, leading to your accident.
Comprehensive Support for Your Claim
Following your accident, it is crucial to report your injury as soon as possible to make sure that your claim has the highest chances of being accepted. Moreover, you should rapidly get in touch with Jarman Law Office so that we can immediately begin collecting evidence to prove your need for full compensation. While employers are supposed to uphold safety regulations and statutes, they will be seeking their own legal counsel to justify their negligence. However, you can count on our skilled attorney to swiftly gather all the documents and files necessary to uphold your rights to recompense.
What You Can Claim for After a Work-Related Injury
