Involved In A Workplace Accident?
Work-related accidents happen every day in all types of occupations, from dangerous construction sites to basic offices. How workers respond to these accidents can greatly impact what happens next. The best step a worker can take is to immediately inform their boss or supervisor, as there is a 30-day timeframe that an employer must be notified within.
These accidents can take many shapes and forms, some seeming to be minor at first. Regardless of how serious your injuries appear to be, you need to take action to report your accident.

Equipment Malfunction And Workers’ Comp
Equipment malfunction cases are different than other workers’ comp cases because they potentially involve a third party. In these cases, the third party is the equipment manufacturer, whose failure to properly test or produce a safe product could be held as a liability against them.
Common instances in which equipment malfunction is a significant risk:
- Construction sites
- Piers, ports, loading docs
- Any task concerning scaffolding/heights
No matter what the environment you were in or what task you were involved with when you were hurt by faulty equipment, our legal team can help. Not only can we help you file and, if necessary, fight for the proper workers’ comp relief, but also take the proper steps to hold the equipment manufacturer responsible for your pain and suffering.
