Injured on the Job by Defective Products

In addition to traditional workers’ compensation, we may determine other sources of compensation for you. If your injury was the result of a malfunctioning machine, for instance, you may bring a “third party” claim. If the machine had a defect, or was improperly maintained, you may have a case against the manufacturer or maintenance technician.

The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has strict guidelines about job site conditions and hazards. If an OSHA violation has contributed to your injury, your employer should bear responsibility. This is something you will want to discuss with your on the job injury lawyer.

On the Job Toxic Substance Injuries

Sometimes, workers become exposed to toxic substances in the course of their jobs.  An accidental spill or the effects of long-term exposure can do serious damage. Substances such as asbestos, benzene, radium, and silica can cause lifelong illness or premature death.

If your job exposes you to dangerous substances, you may be able to file a toxic tort lawsuit. There are two types of toxic injuries:
• acute injuries which happen immediately, such as a chemical burn
• latent injuries which take time to appear, such as cancer

Acute injuries from a chemical may include burns on the skin, scarring, or loss of vision. Latent injuries, though more difficult to prove, may include serious illnesses and various types of cancer such as mesothelioma. An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer will investigate all possibilities to ensure that you are rightfully compensated.

    I contacted [Attorney] about a car accident I had, and I met with her and she was very polite and very kind, and told me she was gonna help me through this experience that I’d never gone through before. She and her team answered my calls, my questions, and my concerns for everything and anything I needed. Also she and her team made me feel like a part of their family and I thank them very much for their experience. David, Car Accident Client

    [Attorney] Munley and Munley Law have been absolutely awesome to work with. After wasting years with another firm working on my case, Munley Law was able to get me the social security disability that I deserved. You walk in to Munley Law and are greeted with a friendly smile and courtesy. They are highly confidential, well organized and extremely knowledgeable about social security disability – they really know what they are doing. They were with me every step of the way, did all of the leg work, and returned calls promptly. They assured me that if we didn’t win, we would keep fighting, because I deserved this. They were professional and courteous, and I had complete trust in them. I highly recommend Munley Law – they will fight on your behalf. Sandy, Social Security Disability Case
