Did You Suffer A Serious Injury?
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was created following the congressional approval of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 in order to guarantee that employers would provide their workers with safe working conditions through the creation and enforcement of basic safety standards. Failure to follow these standards puts the lives of every worker at risk, and if you were seriously injured in an industrial accident, whether it occurred at a plant, refinery, mill, or another workplace, you deserve the chance to file a lawsuit to fight for the compensation you need to recover and hold those responsible accountable for their actions so no one else suffers a similar injury.

Understand Your Rights
OSHA wasn’t the only thing that the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 changed – it also boosted the training program and occupational safety requirements and standards. Proper training, safety equipment, and maintenance can prevent almost any industrial accident, but even with these changes hazards still exist on worksites throughout the United States. If you ever notice a hazard that threatens your or your coworker’s health and safety, it’s your responsibility to alert your employer immediately in order to keep everyone safe. If they fail to act on this information and someone suffers an injury due to their negligence, then they could be held responsible for any damages or costs resulting from the incident.
