Work injuries that involve only one hurt employee are both common and fairly straightforward, typically resulting in the injured party being owed money by their employer or their worker’s compensation insurance. But when a workplace accident injures multiple employees at once, things can become more complicated. The injured group stands the best chance of winning their case and getting the compensation they need to cover their damages by hiring a work-related injury attorney and filing a class-action lawsuit for a work injury involving multiple employees. Read on to find out more.
A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT FOR A WORK INJURY INVOLVING MULTIPLE EMPLOYEES
When multiple employees are injured at once, this can lead to a class-action lawsuit, a lawsuit in which an injury attorney represents a group of victims who have suffered damages or injuries. In workplace injury cases, class action lawsuits often stem from situations such as large accidents like oil spills, cave-ins, or explosions that injure multiple workers at once; poor working conditions that cause workers to develop chronic health conditions over time; and negligence, wherein employers fail to keep the work environment safe and hazard-free for workers.
If you think you and your fellow coworkers have grounds for a class-action lawsuit, contact a work-related injury attorney as soon as possible. In most cases, class action lawsuits involve at least 100 victims or more, and these victims must have suffered similar damages or injuries as a result of the situation or the employer’s act of negligence.
