Workplace Safety

Workplace Safety

Workers' Comp Lawyer in Walnut Creek, CA

Accidents occur every day in workplaces across the country. As a result, thousands of workers' compensation claims are filed each year for workplace injuries. Many of these accidents are caused by situations outside of anyone's control, but most are a result of poor safety precautions in the workplace.

An unattended spill could cause a slip and fall accident and traumatic brain injury. A cord stretched across a walkway could cause someone to trip and injure their spinal cord. Exposed electrical wires, removed or disabled safeguards on machinery, improper safety training-the list of workplace safety violations is endless. If you have been injured because of lack of safety in the workplace, you may be eligible for compensation.

What to Do in a Workplace Safety Situation

The moment you become aware of a safety hazard in the workplace, see what you can do to prevent an injury. If you are unable to resolve the problem yourself, bring it up with your employer. Should they choose to ignore the problem and you suffer injury as a result, that is when you should contact a workers' comp attorney from our firm and file a claim.

Also, if your workplace is inspected by an investigator from Cal/OSHA-the California Occupational Safety and Health Administration-you can bring up your concerns with them anonymously. Whatever you do, you should never let a safety violation go unaddressed, especially if it has resulted in an injury.
