Injuries and OSHA Violations Attorney in Massachusetts
Were You Injured Because of OSHA Safety Violations?
The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration enforces health and safety regulations in all American workplaces. Its mission is to prevent injury and protect the health of American workers. That mission can only truly be accomplished when employers and managers comply with OSHA regulations.
If you were hurt in the workplace because your employer violated or failed to comply with OSHA regulations, you are eligible for workers' compensation. If OSHA investigated your job site and determined there were violations, that evidence can be submitted to workers' comp to strengthen your claim. In some cases, you may also have a personal injury claim against a responsible third party.
If you have questions about whether your injury will be covered or need legal help getting full and fair compensation after a workplace accident, contact J A Denner Criminal Defense Group online to set up a free consultation. Or, call toll free at 866-370-5422 to speak with a lawyer in one of our offices in Boston.
Were you fired for reporting an OSHA safety violation?
It's unfortunate, but sometimes workers suffer twice from an employer's compliance failures and OSHA safety violations. They suffer an injury at a job site and then, when they report the violation, they are fired. Whether you reported the violation before or after you were injured, blowing the whistle on safety violations is an activity that is protected by law. Your employer cannot legally fire you for reporting an OSHA safety violation.
At J A Denner Criminal Defense Group, our attorneys can help you with both your injury claim and with a wrongful termination claim. (See our civil law Web site to learn more). We protect the rights of whistleblowers.
