Workplace Injury Attorneys Defending Your Rights
Our law firm can settle your third-party workplace injury claims. High-risk work environments such as a warehouse, office environment, or high-rise construction site put employees at risk for workplace injuries and accidents. Third-party workplace injuries involve a workplace injury caused by the negligence of a company or individual who does not work for the company but is contracted to do work for the company. A slip and fall on an icy sidewalk that should have been cleaned off by a hired contractor is a common example of a third-party work injury. If you have a question about whether your injuries involve the negligence of a third-party, contact our workplace injury attorneys in Ogden, UT, to discuss your case.

Workplace Property Must Be Kept In a Safe and Well Maintained Condition
Business owners are responsible for keeping their property and equipment safe and well maintained. This includes work vehicles, equipment and all property of the company. If a company-owned vehicle that has not been maintained is involved in a car accident, the company could be held liable as well as the employee driving the vehicle. Most large companies have an attorney on retainer to defend the company from any such claims. Our workplace accident lawyers advocate for victims of workplace accidents in order to settle the matter quickly and fairly.
