Fellow Employee's Actions Causes Accident

Any time employees are working around moving vehicles, there is the threat that an accident could occur.

Recently, an employee was injured after a fellow employee didn't notice him behind the front-loader he operating. It, unfortunately, resulted in the front loader striking the employee and leaving him with serious injuries.

There was definitely negligence on someone's part that resulted in this worker being injured.

Perhaps the driver of the front-loader was being absent-minded and didn't notice his fellow employee, and it was just a simple accident. Even though it was the driver's fault, unless it was an intentional act to injure the other employee, the company is still liable for the worker's injury.

If you've been injured at work, you need to make sure you know and understand your rights. We know that navigating the law can be intimidating and confusing...but we are here to help. No question is too simple or silly to ask....we've heard them all...and we answer each of them truthfully and with total consideration.
