Toledo Law Firm Fights for Workers and Others Injured in Industrial Accidents
Toledo lawyers aggressively pursue claims against employers and others at fault
Industrial accidents can be a hazard not only for workers but also for others who live, work or merely happen to be in the area, such as when explosive or toxic substances are involved. At Zychowicz Skeldon, Ltd, we are ready to take on the culpable parties and will not back down until our clients’ case is resolved, no matter how stubbornly the defendants and their insurers resist.
Working to see that employees injured on the job receive workers’ compensation
Industrial workers who suffer job-related injuries may be entitled to workers’ compensation, even when the employers are not at fault. A company or person that reserves the right to exercise control over the manner or means of doing the work is considered an employer for workers’ compensation purposes. You must normally bring your claim within one year or, if you are diagnosed with a work-related injury, either two years after you are disabled or six months after the diagnosis. We can determine whether you qualify for workers’ compensation and, if so, represent you.
Aggressively representing industrial workers and others injured by industrial accidents from the parties at fault
Industrial workers might not be limited to recovering workers’ compensation from their employers They may bring a lawsuit if their injuries are the fault of a third party. In addition, someone who was not involved in the construction work but who suffers an injury might have a personal injury might be entitled to damages if it was caused by:
- Inherently dangerous construction work, for which a reasonable person would understand the risk and the need to take precautions
- Defective machinery and other products that are unreasonably dangerous, for which the manufacturer or seller may be liable to the user regardless of fault
Personal injury cases must normally be brought within two years, but time limits for product defect cases may be longer in cases where it is not immediately apparent that a defective product caused the injury.
There is no guarantee that we will recover damages in any given case, especially because we think innovatively and may bring cases that less venturesome attorneys might not. However, once we take a case, we do not back down in the face of tough opposition.
