Working in heavy industrial facilities isn’t just hard work – it can be dangerous work. Injuries are relatively common in heavy industry, and there are rules and regulation in place on both state and federal levels to protect you from injuries sustained from accidents at work.
No matter how careful you may be, defective equipment can cause catastrophic damage to your body and your life. Whether the injury resulted from malfunctioning equipment or unsafe workplace conditions, the workman’s comp lawyers at Goldblatt + Singer will get you the compensation you deserve.
We will comprehensively investigate your accident to determine what a manufacturer could have done differently to avoid accident or injury. We work alongside product design experts, mechanical engineers, industry-specific professionals, state and federal investigators and OSHA to ensure you receive the maximum compensation for your injuries.
Under workers’ comp law, you cannot sue your employer for injuries at work. There is an exception to this rule in Missouri known as the “something more” doctrine. In order to prove liability under this law, you must show that your employer or co-worker carried out a dangerous act. For example, if the employer was given notice of a problem and didn’t fix it and that problem caused injury that could be something more than a standard workplace injury.
