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.

Types of compensation

Workplace injuries can be devastating and may lead to significant financial losses for the injured workers. However, in such cases, workers may be entitled to various forms of compensation that can help alleviate some of the financial burden. These compensations may include coverage for all necessary medical treatment and rehabilitation under medical expenses, compensation for income lost due to time away from work during recovery under lost wages, and payments to workers who suffer temporary or permanent disabilities that affect their ability to work under disability benefits. These compensations can significantly help injured workers get back on their feet, both financially and physically.
