OSHA standards are designed to help prevent needless workplace tragedies. Unfortunately, many companies are cutting costs and cutting corners and are not making sufficient efforts to live up to their obligations under the law to keep you safe. While violations of OSHA standards are not necessarily enough on their own to prove an employer’s negligence as a matter of law in a lawsuit arising from a workplace injury, they certainly can and will be used by Alford & Clark as evidence of negligence.
Like many other federal laws, OSHA does not override state laws that provide a higher level of protection for employees. Instead, OSHA sets a minimum floor that all private-sector employers have to meet. In Texas, many occupations have their own set of specific regulations, and you can count on Alford & Clark to review the state-level workplace safety and health laws that may apply to your case.
Workplace safety regulations can be be complex, and you need Alford & Clark in your corner when you go up against the powerful corporations and insurance companies.
It’s rare for a lawyer to have first-hand experience of real, hard work. With Alford & Clark, however, you can be represented by a workplace accident lawyer who grew up turning wrenches, wearing FRCs in the Texas heat, and pulling 7/12s on a shutdown. Our family and friends are welders, mechanics, boilermakers, pipe fitters, and crane operators. Our lawyers know the difference between what a company’s safety policy says on paper and what company safety looks like in the real-world. You can trust Alford & Clark to apply real-world experience to your case.
Alford & Clark also has the legal experience. Our workplace accident attorneys have tried workplace-accident cases against some of the nation’s largest companies, and have dealt with some of the most complex issues in the field.
