Dallas TX, 10-FEBRAURY-2014 – The Law Offices of Dan A. Atkerson, and Dallas employment lawyer, Dan Atkerson are proud to announce that they offer consultation and representation for those individuals who have experienced injuries due to workplace negligence. Most job injuries are covered by workers compensation insurance. There is typically little objection to resolving the claims. A different situation is noted when the injury or accident in the workplace was due to negligence. The negligence might be on the part of equipment, products, other employees, or the employer.

According to Dan Atkerson, Dallas employment lawyer, "When workplace negligence is claimed, the injured party or family members may file for legal redress. The plaintiff must claim that the employer is directly responsible because of neglect or failure to provide a safe work environment. The OSHA guidelines must be followed by the employer or there is a risk of injury which is contestable."

Continuing, he explains, "Such cases are not covered typically as no-fault workers compensation claims. The plaintiff has to prove that the employer is at fault. Such cases can be lengthy and contentious. During such periods, the employee may not be able to work, causing financial hardship. The worker may feel that he or she has to accept whatever the employer offers just to survive."

The attorney recommends that plaintiffs find and retain the best and most experienced legal counselor to handle both the definition of the case and any negotiations that will take place. Representation is more than just handling a court appearance. It ensures that the best interests of the client are promoted throughout the entire process. The initial consultation is free and there is no obligation to continue.
