Unfortunately, workplace injuries are common. Some are much more significant than others. When a person sustains a serious on the job injury that prevents him from continuing to work, damages can pile up quickly.
There are several items to consider when evaluating claims for damages associated with on the job injuries. For example, does the employer provide statutory worker’s compensation insurance? Was someone other than a co-worker responsible for the injury (i.e. a delivery person involved in a motor vehicle crash when another driver ran a red light)? Did the employer do anything or fail to do something (i.e. fail to provide proper supervision, support, equipment, etc.) that contributed to the cause of the injury?
