Workers on industrial and construction sites face potentially dangerous work situations every day. Despite numerous state and federal regulations, hundreds of thousands of employees are injured or killed in work-related accidents in the United States each year. A job injury is most often covered by workers compensation insurance and if a claim is filed it is usually resolved without much fanfair. However, if the accident that caused the job injury involved negligence on the part of the employer, a fellow employee or a product, tool, or machine produced by a third party, then a workplace negligence lawsuit may be filed. Should the workplace negligence claim carry on for an extended period of time, the injured worker (the plaintiff) may suffer financially.
