Industrial Accidents

Newport News Accident Attorney Serving All Hampton Roads Cities & Counties

You have the right to a safe workplace. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 was passed to prevent workers from being killed or seriously harmed at work. The law requires employers to provide their employees with working conditions that are free of known dangers. The Act created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), which sets and enforces protective workplace safety and health standards. OSHA also provides information, training and assistance to workers and employers. Workers may file a complaint to have OSHA inspect their workplace if they believe that their employer is not following OSHA standards or that there are serious hazards.

Beyond these, there are many laws, rules, and regulations that may afford the victims of industrial accidents, opportunities to be compensated for wrongful injuries. These include but are not limited to laws regarding negligence, strict liability, unsafe machines, dangerous chemicals, toxic torts, reckless conduct of others, and laws governing general liability.

It is important that an experienced legal team evaluates your industrial accident claim. Complex legal, factual, and evidentiary issues may be involved. If you, a loved one, or friend are injured in an industrial accident, you should take immediate steps to protect their interest.
