Pittsburgh workplace injury attorney advocating for safety on the job

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety & Health Administration sets strict standards for workplace safety.  Employers are liable for injuries that occur as a result of their failure to abide by OSHA regulations or state and local codes or by their negligence in protecting their workers’ safety.  When your employer is remiss in its duties to provide you with a safe and healthy workplace, The Homyak Law Firm, P.C. advocates for your rights in civil court.  The firm can assist you with cases involving:

  • Construction vehicle accidents
  • Construction site accidents
  • Electrocution
  • Factory injuries
  • Mining injuries
  • Falls
  • Falling objects
  • Lack of fall protection
  • Injuries resulting from inappropriate safety measures
  • Illness and injury caused by unsafe conditions

Workplace injuries often involve workers compensation claims.  Applying for these benefits can involve maneuvering through bureaucratic red tape and a lengthy appeals process that can unfairly delay your receipt of the compensation to which you are entitled.  Mark understands how to avoid pitfalls to ensure consistency and efficiency between your workers compensation claim and civil lawsuit.  By pursuing all available remedies, Mark is able to obtain the best results for your case in the most resourceful, effective manner possible.
