Imperial Beach Workplace Injury Attorneys
The standard 40-hour, 5-day workweek requires that an individual spend one-third of each day in the workplace. Although some jobs are inherently more dangerous than others, every person is at risk of a workplace injury. If you have been injured in a workplace accident, it is important to understand your rights. While in most instances an injured worker will claim workers’ compensation benefits, under some limited circumstances it may be necessary and appropriate to instead seek compensation through a civil lawsuit.
At Ritter & Associates, we understand this can be a very trying time in your life, especially if your injuries are serious enough to keep you from returning to work. We are dedicated to helping our clients to pursue the financial compensation that they are due when they suffer as a consequence of egregious negligence in the workplace. Contact an Imperial Beach workplace injury attorney at (619) 296-0123 today.
When to Sue
As worker’s comp laws are intended to shield employers from liability for workplace injuries while granting employees swift access to benefits, there are comparatively few situations in which legal action is available. If the injury is associated with either of the following then it is advisable to consider the potential merits of a civil lawsuit:
- Employer Negligence
- Construction Accidents
This can be a very trying time in your life and gaining access to financial compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and other damages incurred by your workplace injury may be of vital importance. Let an experienced Imperial Beach workplace injuries lawyer help you every step of the way.
Do not hesitate to seek legal counsel if you or a loved one has suffered an injury in the workplace under circumstances that you believe constitute a significant breach of employer responsibility.
