Protecting the rights of injured workers in West Virginia


As a previous post discussed, construction sites are one of the most dangerous work environments, resulting in the most fatalities and Occupational Health and Safety Administration violations. While construction sites might cause a significant amount of serious and fatal work incidents, an unsafe work environment could be the cause of a workplace accident in any industry.

No matter the type of work being conducted, there are employer responsibilities for all work industries. This means that employers must provide a safe and healthy environment for their employees, ensuring it is free from hazards and dangers. Moreover, employers are also responsible for training and communicating with employees in order to address known or potential dangers. Failure to fulfill these responsibilities could risk the lives and health of employees in West Virginia and elsewhere.

At our law firm, we understand that a workplace injury or illness could result in serious and long-term ailments. Such a situation could prevent an employee from returning to work. An on-the-job injury or illness could make a major life impact, so it is important that employees understand the rights and options available to them.

Workers' compensation is a benefit that injured workers could pursue, helping them with expenses related to the workplace incident. The benefit could offset financial burdens, such as medical bills, rehabilitation and lost wages. While the application process can be complex, this should not deter workers from seeking a benefit that is likely owed to them.
