Victim of Employer Negligence?
In the State of California, employers are required to provide a work environment that is safe for all of their employees. When they fail to fulfill this essential obligation, workers may suffer serious injury and the employer may be held liable for negligence. If you were injured at your job due to your employer failing to maintain a safe workplace, you may be eligible to receive damages through worker’s compensation.
Some common examples of employer negligence include:
- Failing to properly maintain safety equipment
- Harmful and hazardous materials
- Improper screening of employees or other negligent hiring practices
- Improper training of employees
- Improper supervision of employees

Employer Failed to Protect You?
In order to protect workers, government agencies, such as OSHA, have been established and strict rules and regulations have been put in place. In general, if an employer is aware or should reasonably be aware that their workers could be injured by certain actions or hazards on the job site, yet fails to protect against them, you may very well have a case. As an employee, you expect to be taken care of and work under safe conditions. When this does not happen, you are at serious risk of injury, and the negligent party should be held fully responsible for their actions.
California does require that employees purchase worker’s compensation insurance. However, it is often difficult for workers to collect the maximum benefits that they are entitled to without the assistance of an experienced attorney at their side. Our team at Law Offices of Nooshin Dalili believes that you have the right to collect benefits for injuries that were caused by the negligence or intentional actions of your employer.
