Workplace Accidents / Personal Injury:
Personal Injury claims are unlike other types of injury claims because it is not necessary to demonstrate that your employer was negligent in any way. As long as the accident happened in the course of your employment (at your workplace or elsewhere), you may have a valid Personal Injury claim.
Accidents and Injuries
An injury at work may have been the result of one-time trauma (such as a fall or a mishap with a power tool), or it may have been the result of accumulative effects of repetitive actions (such as word processing or factory assembly work) or stress and strain (such as lifting patients in a nursing home or bending over to install tires, for example), when back or neck injury trauma is the cause.
An industrial disease such as carpal tunnel syndrome will develop over time — and if primarily a result of workplace activity, will trigger Personal Injury. Carpal tunnel syndrome and lung disease are examples of occupational diseases that may set the stage for a Personal Injury claim. This is the case when your work puts you at greater risk of developing an ailment than the general population.
Third Party Claims
The Piemonte Law Firm was founded with the goal of helping injured and disabled people recover compensation and benefits from all available sources. If your workplace accident also involved an outside negligent party (such as an equipment manufacturer, a subcontractor or someone who was visiting your workplace), there may also be a third-party liability claim in addition to your Personal Injury claim. This is often the case with construction accidents.
