On The Job Injuries
Work Related Injury Lawyer
On the job injuries occur on a regular basis. It is the obligation of your employer to provide a safe workplace for you to work in. Safety precautions should always be in place, and OSHA guidelines should be followed. When this is not done, the opportunity for workplace accidents is increased. Some common on the job injuries include:
- Slip and fall injuries
- Falls from heights
- Vehicle accidents
- Back injuries from sitting, standing, lifting or bending
- Carpal tunnel or rotator cuff injuries
- Electrocution causing severe burns
- Defective machinery or equipment injuries
- Being struck or crushed by an object
- Occupational injuries due to exposure to toxic chemicals
- Catastrophic injuries such as head trauma, brain damage, spinal cord injuries
If you have been harmed on the job and need legal assistance, a Pasadena personal injury attorney from McGee, Lerer & Associates can help. We will evaluate your workplace injury case and determine the best course of action to take for your particular situation. We will fully document your claim in order for you to recover the funds you will need for your medical treatment, lost wages, and other expenses resulting from your accident.

Third Party Claims
Most on the job injuries fall under the workers' comp system. When your employer has been extremely negligent, or if it can be determined that a third party bears responsibility for your injuries, you have the right to file a legal claim to request compensation from these individuals, over and above your workers' comp claim. Some of these liable third parties include equipment manufacturers, distributors, contractors, property owners, suppliers, and drivers. Our husband and wife legal team will do a thorough investigation into the facts of your case. If a third party is found to be negligent, we will aggressively pursue compensation on your behalf for your workplace injuries.
