Personal Injury

Workplace Accidents

San Francisco Work Related Injury Attorney

You go to work each day to provide for yourself and your family, not to put yourself in an environment where you are at risk of accident, injury or harm. If you have suffered a work-related injury, you should know that you have legal options — often beyond the limited benefits of workers’ compensation. Not every work injury is limited to the workers’ compensation system. There are many exceptions in which you may be able to sue for damages caused by your injuries. An experienced East Bay workplace accident lawyer can review your unique situation, and explore options that are available for you.

Experienced in Workplace Accidents

At the Law Office of Thomas C. Tagliarini, we have worked closely with clients for 30 years in the Bay Area to see their options to bring a case beyond the workers’ compensation system. Although workers’ compensation can provide you with money and benefits, payments are usually quite low and don’t compensate you for things like pain and suffering. Workers’ compensation also does not punish an employer for poor safety controls or dangerous conditions through punitive damages.

What Conditions Allow for the Filing of a Workplace Injury Lawsuit?

  • If a third party caused your injury, you might be able to bring a personal injury lawsuit against that person or company.
  • If you were injured by a defective product, you might be able to bring a products liability claim against the manufacturer of the product.
  • If you were injured by a toxic substance, you might be able to bring a toxic tort lawsuit against the manufacturer of the substance.
  • If you were injured because of your employer’s intentional or gross misconduct, you might be able to bring a personal injury lawsuit against your employer.
  • If your employer does not carry workers’ compensation insurance, you might be able to sue your employer in civil court or collect money from a state fund.
