If you have been injured in an accident due to the negligent acts of another, then it is important to know that you may be able to obtain money damages for the injuries you have suffered. There are laws regarding employee safety and the safe work environment that employers are responsible for providing to their employees. If you have been injured in an accident at work due to the negligence of a coworker or your employer, then you may be able to collect damages through a workers’ compensation claim.
A slip and fall accident can result from a negligent coworker not cleaning fluid up from the ground, thereby causing you to slip accidentally. You may have the option to file a workers’ compensation claim for damages or file a lawsuit against the negligent individual. It is important to note that you may be approached by an insurance company offering a settlement for your injuries; it is highly advisable that you do not accept this initial settlement but rather speak with a representative before accepting or declining an offer.
Property owners have the responsibility to provide a safe environment for invitees, guests, and other authorized individuals who come onto their property. When an individual is injured on a property due to the negligence of the property owner, then the owner may be held liable for the individual’s injuries. These circumstances can include slip and fall accidents as well as dog attacks. Many people keep domestic dogs and other animals as pets, and many believe their dogs to be docile and friendly. There are many cases, however, when a dog misinterprets the intentions of an invitee and attacks them. Without proper warning or adequate restraint for the dog, the property owner may be held liable for the injuries sustained by a guest due to negligence.
