When you are injured at work, workers’ compensation insurance is supposed to cover your medical expenses and lost income.
But there are times when different rules apply.
Employers, owners and contractors are required to upload basic safety standards for the workplace. They are supposed to use all available resources to protect workers performing potentially dangerous jobs.
If your employer did not take proper precautions to prevent your workplace injury, you may have a claim under the Oregon Employer’s Liability Law (ELL).
Were you injured on the job?
It can be hard to determine if your on-the-job injury is covered by Workers’ Compensation, or if you need help making an ELL claim.
You need to know all of your options. Call 503-325-5509 for a free consultation.
