Personal Injuries at Work

When you take on a particular job, you probably know the risks involved in that profession. For example, if you work to re-tar roofs, you should know that there is the inherent danger of falling off of a roof that you are working on. Work-related personal injuries can be frightening on multiple levels: not only can you lose your ability to perform your job, but you may also have to undergo a number of surgeries or other medical treatments to help you recover.

If you have sustained a work-related injury, may be a good idea to contact an experienced attorney. For reliable information and experienced service, look no further than the Phoenix personal injury lawyers of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally, P.L.C., at 800-763-0964.

Work-Related Injuries Becoming Personal Injuries

Typically, if you sustain an injury at work, you will receive compensation as required by state law. Each state regulates worker's comp, although it is the Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the federal government that is in charge of worker's safety.

However, sometimes work-related injuries become personal injuries that can be taken to court. Let's go back to our roofer example. Yes, you should already know that you can fall off the roof; it's part of the risks inherent in that career. But, if someone is reckless and places the ladder on an unstable base, this may cause you to fall off the ladder and receive an injury.

When another party’s extreme recklessness or negligence causes an injury that falls beyond the expected risk, this may count as a personal injury that requires more than just worker's compensation.
