Common Causes of Workplace Injuries

Workplace accidents and job-related injuries can and do occur for a variety of reasons. If you are eligible for workers’ compensation, you do not have to prove that your employer, a coworker, or any other party was negligent. However, you may need to prove that you were not behaving recklessly yourself, as this is a common defense to workers’ compensation claims.

At Hasty Pope, LLP, we represent clients who have suffered work-related injuries caused by:

  • Falls
  • Vehicle accidents on the job
  • Unsafe/defective machinery
  • Defective products
  • Repetitive stress
  • Occupational diseases
  • Hazardous conditions
  • Exposure to harmful substances
  • Fires and explosions

Our team is here to fight for you and the benefits you are owed. If you are having any issues with your workers’ compensation claim—from notifying your employer of the accident and filing your initial claim to appealing a notice of claim denial—turn to Hasty Pope, LLP.

Do You Need a Workers' Comp Lawyer?

If you have been injured at work, you may have the right to file a workers’ compensation claim. Work-related injuries can be severe, resulting in serious disabilities. Since there are very specific rules that apply to filing a claim and seeking benefits, your best course of action is to hire an injury attorney.

There are very specific rules that apply to disability payments, medical treatment, physician changes, vocational rehabilitation, and permanent partial disability benefits. The best way to avoid pitfalls is to contact an experienced lawyer as soon as possible after your accident.

Our Canton workers’ compensation attorneys can guide you through the complex process. Some situations—such as a car accident while working—may require a separate personal injury claim against the negligent party. Our firm can handle both cases on your behalf.
