Dangers At The Workplace
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration sets guidelines according to which employers are required to create and maintain safe working conditions for their workers. However, many employers, through general negligence or improper maintenance fail to meet these standards, and as a result, employees are exposed to an unnecessarily dangerous work environment.
If you have been hurt in the workplace as a consequence of exceptional negligence on the part of your employer, a co-worker, or a third party then it may be appropriate to consider pursuing a civil lawsuit in lieu of filing a workers’ compensation claim.

Dangerous Working Conditions
The unnerving thing about workplace injuries is that they can strike in any work environment at any time. Gross negligence or malicious intent can transform what might otherwise be a safe space into a danger zone. Some sources of injury that may be linked with a prosecutable degree of negligence are:
- Ungrounded wiring
- Improperly constructed scaffolding
- Exposure to hazardous chemicals
- Crane collapse
- Mining 'cave in'
- Defective or manufacturing heavy machinery or tools
- Physical violence
