New Jersey Workplace Injury Attorney
Everyone deserves a safe work environment. In New Jersey, it’s more than a luxury, it’s the law. Job injuries that are caused by employers failing to create safe workplaces can and should be held responsible for damages. Your health and well being are too important.
The majority of accidents occur where work spaces involving industrial equipment with multiple moving parts need the proper safety measures in place to ensure your safety. Often, the safety guards and safety equipment required to operate machines is removed or neglected by employers. Without these measures, the possibility of workplace accidents can be grave. The effects usually include disfigurements, loss of fingers and limbs, amputations, burns, and blindness. Even worse misfortunes can result in spinal cord injury, brain damage, paralysis and even death.
If you were injured on the job, your employer may be responsible if they failed to do what was required to create a safe workplace. Whether you or a family member were the victim, contact the Law Offices of Katherine G. Houghton today. We can determine the best course of action for your case. Don’t fight employers and insurance carriers alone — we can help.
