All U.S. workers have the right to safe workplace, and all employers have the responsibility to ensure a hazard-free and functional working environment. Even though the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has standards in place to help ensure a safe work environment, accidents can and do happen. In some cases, the employer is at fault because they ignore the safety regulations or they are not stringent when it comes to enforcing them at the workplace.

But all too often, workplace injuries are the result of safety hazards that violate OSHA standards. If this is the case in your workplace accident, it is important to contact a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer who understands OSHA violations.
You pay no legal fees unless we win your case.
