OSHA Violations

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, commonly referred to as OSHA, provides regulations requiring employers in most industries to keep employees safe. This includes working with equipment and chemicals that may involve safety measures. While OSHA is a set of federal regulations, the states each have their own occupational safety and health regulations.

If you have been injured at work and you believe your injuries were caused because your employer may have violated an OSHA regulation, contact us via this form for a free case evaluation.

What Does OSHA Cover?

OSHA covers almost every industry, especially those with dangerous conditions such as construction, auto repair shops, restaurants, and businesses that work with flammables and other chemicals. For example, an electric company must follow OSHA regulations to keep employees working in bucket trucks safe by providing training and harnesses. If an employee falls out of the bucket because they had no harness or the harness was not properly maintained, the employee could have an OSHA claim.

OSHA Fines

In addition to paying damages to the injured, the defendant may also have to pay fines to OSHA. As of Jan. 23, 2019, penalties could be as high as $13,260 per violation, $13,260 per day after the abatement date if a company fails to abate, and $132,598 per willful or repeated violation.

What an OSHA Lawyer Can Do for You

An OSHA lawyer will review your claim and investigate the case. We may hire expert witnesses to inspect the site of your accident and testify to your injuries and how they occurred to ensure that you were wounded because of an OSHA violation. Because OSHA regulations cover so many industries, it’s always better to take advantage of our free case evaluation even if you are not sure you have an OSHA complaint.

Damages

You may be able to recover damages for your injuries. Economic damages include those with a price, such as medical costs, future medical costs, loss of wages, and future loss of wages. Noneconomic damages include those without a price, such as pain and suffering, loss of companionship and/or consortium, loss of a limb, or loss of a loved one.

Punitive damages are awarded only when the defendant’s conduct is grossly negligent or their actions were intentional and they knew there was a good chance you could get injured or killed. One example would be a forestry department that didn’t provide proper safety equipment for trimming trees or didn’t keep its safety equipment in good working order. If it knew that employees could be injured or die because of poor maintenance on safety equipment — or lack of equipment — it could face punitive damages.
