Helping Victims Of Industrial Accidents Heal And Recover
Individuals who work in industrial settings and around heavy moving equipment face many occupational dangers and hazards. Even when workers follow safety protocols to protect their eyes, ears and head, the environment itself is risky and accidents happen. Industrial accidents often result in serious injuries that can greatly affect your health and your life. While companies are required to provide injured workers with workers’ compensation, the laws in Ohio limit the provisions that these suits cover.
At The Law Offices of Joseph T. Joseph Jr., LLC, we understand the challenges that many people face after industrial accidents. Our Cleveland industrial accident lawyers will work with you and seek to recover the compensation that you and your family need to account for the physical injuries, lost wages and medical expenses you suffered and incurred.
Fighting For Full Compensation After
An Industrial Accident
Workers’ compensation statutes allow injured workers to receive compensation for a portion of lost wages and medical expenses. These laws don’t typically focus on fault, as workers’ compensation benefits are paid out of a state-operated fund.
Some accidents are caused by the negligence of someone other than your employer. For example, if an outside contractor or faulty equipment contributed to your accident, you may file a third-party claim to hold these parties accountable for your injuries. Pursuit of these claims will cover compensation beyond lost wages and medical expenses. You can seek payment for pain and suffering and other nonmonetary damages.
