File Your Claim with a Workers’ Comp Attorney in Atlanta
Most workers’ comp claims result from slips and falls at work, construction and manufacturing accidents, and stress on joints and limbs due to strain from repeated activities. Quite often, the actions of an employer create a condition that places a worker at risk of injury, and in these cases the employer can be held liable for damages over and above the workers compensation benefits. All workplace injuries should be reported immediately to the employer and the medical treatment received by the injured individual properly documented. Conditions that may indicate that an employer is liable for an injury resulting from an accident include:
- Failure to properly maintain essential equipment
- Ignoring an unsafe condition which led to an accident
- Disregard for employee safety
- Violation of regulations regarding worker safety
- Failure to maintain an environmentally safe work environment
If you have been injured while at work through these or any other circumstances, you are urged to seek the advice of an Atlanta workers’ comp lawyer immediately.
