Have you been injured at work? Did your employer do everything they could to prevent it? They should take good care of you after all the hard work you’ve put in. It’s the right thing to do, and it’s also the law.
Injured at Work? We Can Help.
If you’re hurt on the job, your remedies might be limited offered by Workers’ Compensation, but on the job injuries are often the fault of a person or company other than your employer. In that case, you can recover money from Workers’ Compensation and file against the person or company who caused your injuries.
Oregon law places the responsibility for workplace safety on all contractors and subcontractors, requiring them to use every practical safety precaution to prevent injuries on a jobsite or workplace.
This law is powerful. It puts people over profits.
We recently represented the foreman of a siding company who became paralyzed from the waist down because he fell from a ladder when scaffolding collapsed. He won a settlement against the general contractor who didn’t bother to make sure that equipment on the jobsite was safe.
Other jobsite injury cases our attorneys have handled include a paper plant workman who suffered serious chemical burns, a worker who fell from a platform, and workers injured by dangerous vehicles and shoddy machinery.
