When you suffer an injury on-the-job, you need the advice of an experienced Cincinnati workers compensation lawyer. Many preventable injuries are due to poor company safety practices and/or faulty equipment.
The attorneys at the law firm of O’Connor Acciani & Levy Co., LPA are highly experienced in this field. Licensed in Ohio and Kentucky, our injury lawyers know and protect the rights of workers who are disabled while engaged in construction activities.
Whether accidents occurred on or off the job site, our personal injury lawyers will take care of you. If your injury resulted in a short or long-term disability, we will investigate the incident and tell you what you’re entitled to beyond workers compensation. Construction companies are also responsible for keeping the work zone safe for members of the public, who we represent as well.
Safe Working Environment Requirements
Employees have the right to a safe work environment.
A company’s risk management policy requires that they make workers safety a priority. This includes ensuring that:
- Equipment is working properly and is well cared for;
- Good housekeeping practices are followed;
- Employees are adequately trained, and
- Personal safety devices are supplied.
At O’Connor Acciani & Levy Co., LPA, we have represented many disabled workers in personal injury cases against manufacturers and other defendants outside their employers. Accidents caused by faulty equipment allow the injured worker to pursue a defective product liability claim.
Inadequate safety precautions, poor design, and architectural defects or errors are other types of liability settlements we have won.
