This includes following the strict health and safety standards put in place by the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA).

Workers may be injured in a variety of ways including slip and fall accidents, chemical exposure, and unsafe machinery. If you have been injured in an industrial accident at the workplace, our attorneys can assist you with bringing a worker’s compensation claim. Such claims may provide lost income, medical coverage, and compensation for long-term disability while you are recovering. Additionally, our attorneys engage in extensive investigation to identify any other potential responsible parties beyond your employer.
