Co-Worker Negligence Injury Lawyers In Dayton, Ohio
Many workplace accidents are not really accidents. They are preventable events that someone - in many cases, a co-worker - failed to prevent. If you have been injured by a co-worker's negligence, an experienced attorney can help you obtain all of the compensation you deserve from workers' compensation.
At Hochman & Plunkett in Dayton, our lawyers are committed to helping injured workers throughout Ohio obtain the medical care they need and the compensation they deserve. No matter how you were injured, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
Can I Sue A Negligent Co-Worker?
Under the Ohio workers' compensation system, you generally cannot sue your employer or anyone who works directly for your employer if you are injured on the job. However, if the person who caused your injury was a contractor or an employee of a different company, you may be able to file what is known as a third-party claim.
In addition, if your employer or the co-worker committed a violation of a specific safety requirement (VSSR) as outlined in the Ohio Administrative Code, you may be entitled to an additional award of 15 percent to 50 percent of the maximum allowable compensation granted to injured workers.
Our lawyers will use our skill and experience to fight for the maximum compensation for co-worker negligence-related injuries. To better serve our clients, we have offices in Dayton, Cincinnati, Springfield, Troy, and Columbus.
