Workplace injury claims and lawsuits

Suffering an accident while at work can be a physical and emotional disaster. In cases of serious, life-threatening, or catastrophic injury, the consequences can last a lifetime, affecting the ability to work or enjoy life. 

Injured on the job?

The work injury lawyers at Frenkel & Frenkel can help you seek compensation if you were injured in an accident while on the job. For example, if you are a construction worker, contractors and subcontractors must adhere to federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) safety regulations to avoid preventable accidents. We will investigate your on-the-job accident to determine whether negligence requires that you be provided with compensation for your injuries and lost wages.

Understanding your rights

Workers’ compensation provides monetary benefits for anyone injured because of their negligence or negligence on the part of their employer. However, when employers don’t carry workers’ compensation insurance, an industrial or construction accident victim can sue an employer for negligence. If your employer or coworker was negligent and harmed you, or if your workplace failed to follow OSHA safety regulations, Frenkel & Frenkel can help.

Lawsuits against an employer

Employees can also bring a claim or sue their employer when employers only carry workers’ compensation insurance in certain circumstances. One of these circumstances is when the employee dies due to the employer’s gross negligence, which is a higher level of negligence.

The type of litigation research and support performed for those who have suffered injuries on the job depends on the job environment and specific regulations surrounding the industry. Many industries deal with large, well-connected organizations such as oil companies, commercial construction companies, and energy providers. In any case, it is crucial not to rush into a negotiation without getting feedback from an experienced lawyer who is capable of providing the kind of support and confidence that comes from experience dealing with businesses of all shapes and sizes.

Industries with workplace injury cases

Here are some industries with severe and fatal injuries on the job site. Individuals injured in these industries should connect with the talented and experienced workplace injury lawyers at Frenkel & Frenkel.

Oil and gas industry

Production and profits can often be put in front of safety when dealing with natural resources and heavy-duty equipment. Roustabouts, roughnecks, toolpushers, drillers, and oil field truck drivers all deserve legal support when faced with injury or loss.

Maintenance crews

Regardless of negligence or fault, injuries related to work or unrelated ship maintenance, accidents, or illnesses can potentially cause ship owners to be responsible for the payment of compensation. Ship & vessel crews and operators would benefit from legal counsel when facing these events.

Chemical plants

Toxic chemicals, heavy equipment, and insufficient safety programs can all contribute to problems needing legal counsel. Explosions and chemical spills require immediate action.

Manufacturing plants

Large machines like forklifts, fires, explosions, and chemical leaks, are common causes for legal counsel and could warrant consultation with experienced workplace injury lawyers.

Offshore oil rigs

Drilling for oil in the ocean causes a unique set of legal issues for offshore drilling rigs and production platforms. The following structures are commonly associated with these issues:

  • Jack-up drilling rigs
  • Semi-submersible rigs
  • Drilling ships
  • Tension leg platforms
  • Fixed offshore oil platforms

Road crews

Maintaining streets, highways, and bridges can sometimes result in the following:

  • Transportation incidents
  • Contact with objects or equipment
  • Hazardous exposure to chemicals
  • Falls, trips, or slips
