Advocating For Employees After A Workplace Accident
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) sets strict standards for workplace safety. Employers are liable for injuries that occur as a result of their failure to abide by OSHA regulation, state and local codes or by their negligence in protecting their workers’ safety.
When you are injured because your employer fails to provide a safe and healthy workplace, The Homyak Law Firm, P.C., advocates for your rights in civil court. We can assist you with cases involving:
- Construction vehicle accidents
- Construction site accidents
- Factory injuries
- Mining injuries
- Slips and falls
- Falling objects
- Lack of fall protection
- Injuries resulting from inappropriate safety measures
- Illness and injury caused by unsafe conditions
Efficiently Obtaining Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Workplace injuries often involve workers’ compensation claims. Unlike a third-party claim, workers’ compensation benefits are available to employees regardless of fault. Applying for these necessary benefits can involve maneuvering bureaucratic red tape and a lengthy appeals process that can unfairly delay your receipt of compensation.
Attorney Mark Homyak knows how to avoid pitfalls to ensure consistency and efficiency between your workers’ compensation claim and civil lawsuit. By pursuing all available remedies, our lawyer can pursue the best results for your case in the most resourceful, effective manner possible.
