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.
At the Law Office of Thomas C. Tagliarini Attorney At Law, 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.
