Federal laws are designed to protect workers from unsafe workplaces. Employers have certain responsibilities to eliminate known health and safety hazards. Even so, about 14 workers die every day in workplace accidents, and every 7 seconds, a worker is hurt.
Dworkin Maciariello specializes in workers’ compensation law to protect workers’ rights. Numerous state and federal laws address what rights an injured or ill worker has, and virtually all workers are covered from the moment their employment begins. If you’ve been injured at work, having an attorney who is skilled in these matters on your side can be highly beneficial to you and your case.
