Established in 1970, the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has been protecting employees for decades by enacting regulations that employers must follow to ensure a safe workplace environment. Most Virginia employers are in full compliance with safety rules, but there are some that violate the law. OSHA keeps an annual list of the top workplace safety citations, which reveals that certain violations always rank high.
You do not need to prove that your employer did not comply with safety regulations to recover monetary benefits, but it is wise to work with a Virginia workers’ compensation attorney when filing a claim. It is also helpful to know the top citations handed out by OSHA over the last few years.
If you have suffered an injury or illness at work, you should seek legal help right away. An attorney can help you navigate the claims process, especially in dealing with your employer’s insurance company. A lawyer can also represent you if it becomes necessary to take your matter to the next level with the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission.
For more information on your rights and legal options, please call Hampton Injury Law PLC to set up a no-cost case evaluation. A Virginia workers’ compensation attorney can review your case and explain how the claims process works.
