Weisberg Law, P.C.: Assisting Client Settlements in Cases of Workplace Injuries

At Pennsylvania-based Weisberg Law, P.C., we assist clients pursuing litigation in cases of workplace and employment discrimination, injuries, and professional liability. One common case type we pursue is workplace injuries involving defective equipment or safety and health standards violations. This problem is serious, with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimating that some 6 million U.S. workplace injuries occur each year, with 6,000 workers dying from those wounds.

Many people mistakenly believe that worker’s compensation may be the only remedy in cases of workplace injury where the employer is at fault. On the contrary, employees can often pursue private litigation in conjunction with filing worker’s compensation claims. The reasons for taking legal action are clear: worker’s compensation only entitles claimants to a certain percentage of lost wages, and claims of pain and suffering are not compensated under existing laws. Weisberg Law, P.C. attorneys help clients pursue settlements against third parties, such as the manufacturer of unsafe equipment involved in an accident, or the nonemployer owner of the premises where the injury occurred.

For example, if a delivery vehicle has a malfunctioning backup warning system and hits an employee as a result, the victim has a justifiable cause for filing a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the broken equipment. The company whose employee caused the accident may be liable as well; for example, if a properly functioning forklift hits a fellow company employee, the injured person may only be able to recover worker’s compensation benefits. However, if the forklift is driven by another company’s employee, the injured party can often pursue damages from the driver and his employer. Our well-qualified Pennsylvania attorneys understand the intricacies of state and federal regulations governing work injuries caused by defective equipment.
