Liability for workplace injuries
Determining liability in workplace injury cases can be complex. In many instances, injured workers are entitled to workers' compensation benefits, which are provided by their employer's insurance. Workers' compensation typically covers medical expenses and lost wages, regardless of who was at fault for the injury. Parties who are commonly held liable in workplace injury cases include:
- Employers: Employers are responsible for maintaining a safe work environment and ensuring that workers receive proper training.
- Third Parties: In some cases, a third party, such as a contractor or equipment manufacturer, may be held liable for a workplace injury.
