Workplace Injuries

Philadelphia Workplace Injuries

Businesses, corporations, and all employers have a legal responsibility to provide their employees with safe working environments that are free from hazards. Although certain lines of work inevitably come with elements of risk, safety regulations must be adhered to prevent injury and death. Anytime an employer fails to take the proper precautions in a working environment, and an employee gets injured as a result, legal action can be taken to hold them responsible.

If you or your family member has been injured in the workplace, and you believe that someone else’s negligence, carelessness, or recklessness is responsible for causing your injuries, Attorney Thomas J. Murphy can help you.

Were you injured on the job?

Workplace injuries are fairly common throughout the Philadelphia area, especially within certain lines of work like construction and road work. All employees should be able to work in safe environments, and employers simply must meet their employees half way when it comes to preserving safety in the workplace. Whether an employer fails to display the proper warning signs or neglects to maintain the grounds in a safe manner, they may be legally required to provide compensation to injured workers for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, or for any other costs incurred because of a workplace injury.

As an experienced personal injury lawyer, Mr. Murphy can put his knowledge to work for you in an effort to obtain compensation for your injuries. The amount of compensation will depend on the extent of your injuries and the degree of negligence on the part of the employer or a third party. Our firm can thoroughly examine the circumstances of your case in order to determine how much compensation you may be eligible to receive for workplace injuries.
