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
