Liability In Work Accidents
There are four types of accidents in particular that make up roughly 60% of all workplace injuries and deaths. Falls are the most common and are followed by accidents involving workers being struck by objects. This is then followed by electrocutions and caught in/between accidents. Companies are supposed to do everything in their power to make sure that workers are adequately trained with safety procedures.
In the event of an accident, a company has a responsibility to step forward and assist workers that are injured.

For example, a utility company may be responsible for an accident if their equipment was in a dangerous condition. A personal injury attorney can
