Workplace Injuries Is Your Employer Responsible?

Agoura Hills Workplace Injury Lawyer

Were you Harmed at Work?

Did you know that if you have suffered an injury in the workplace, there may be other sources of compensation available to you besides workers’ compensation benefits? Workers may be eligible to file a claim against their employer if an unsafe working condition caused the accident, or even a third-party claim if an unsafe product caused their injuries.

If you have suffered an injury in the workplace, contact a Los Angeles work injury lawyer at Effres & Associates so we can discuss the options and compensation available to you, apart from workers’ compensation benefits. We offer our services for residents throughout Southern California, including Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Ventura, and all surrounding counties.

Compensation After Workplace Injury

You are eligible for workers’ compensation regardless of whose fault the accident was. However, most individuals don’t know that workers’ compensation benefits may not be the only source of benefits available when an accident occurs at work. In some cases in which the accident was caused by the negligence of another party, the third party can also be held liable.

Examples of third-party claims:

  • If a defective product such as a defective tool injured you, you can name the manufacturer of the equipment or tools in a third party claim.
  • If you were injured in a slip and fall accident on a slippery floor that was not cleaned properly by a cleaning and servicing company, you could name the cleaning company in a third-party claim.
  • If you were in an accident caused by defective scaffolding, you may be able to name the contractor as liable for erecting the scaffolding.

Third-party claims are not possible in every situation. These claims must be identified on a case-by-case basis.

Protecting Your Rights

If you have been injured in a workplace accident and want to know whether there are other sources of compensation available to you besides workers’ compensation benefits, contact our office to schedule a consultation with a Los Angeles work injury lawyer at Effres & Associates.

We can work with your workers’ compensation lawyer to maximize your overall recovery; and if you do not have a workers’ compensation lawyer, we can refer you to a trusted colleague to evaluate the workers’ compensation claim as well.
