Edwards Kirby attorneys won the largest workplace violence jury verdict in U.S. history in a case involving multiple murders in an Asheville, N.C., workplace violence incident. We have an outstanding track record of success representing victims of burns, explosions, electrocution, construction equipment accidents, and other occurrences of workplace danger.
While many states won’t allow employees to sue their own employer in a job accident case, a third party might be responsible for a worker’s injuries. The responsible party might be an equipment manufacturer, a supplier, an independent contractor, or even an employment agency liable for screening or hiring, especially in workplace violence situations.
The workplace injury attorneys at Edwards Kirby do not handle workers’ compensation claims, but we can work closely with your workers’ comp attorney to make sure that your income and immediate medical expenses are protected while we investigate a personal injury or wrongful death claim against one or more third-party defendants.
The damages claim we present for injured workers can cover such losses as pain and suffering, retraining, loss of quality of life, and other less tangible components of an injury that workers’ comp does not cover, since these conditions occur in the aftermath of a workplace, construction or industrial injury.
