Aggressively Representing Injured Workers
Individuals who work in warehouses and other industrial work environments are often in conditions that can be dangerous. There are federal and state safety regulations that are put in place to protect workers from those risks, but when those regulations are ignored, it can result in serious and fatal injuries. When industrial accidents are caused by negligence or defective products, it is important to hold those responsible parties accountable.
At the Law Offices of Mauro Fiore, Jr., we work hard to recover maximum compensation for our clients, including medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other expenses. When a workplace accident occurs, it is critical to have an experienced lawyer to protect rights. We have built a strong reputation based on our experience and the results we have recovered for injured people and their families.

Construction accidents are tragic both in their frequency and their preventability. Too often, a simple mistake on a construction site causes an accident that will have a lasting impact on the victim. Taking simple precautions to encourage safety and prevent such mishaps is the best way to ensure that workers are kept safe from any hazards beyond those that are already present on a construction site.
Workers’ compensation cases can be quite complicated. If you suffered an injury at work, you have rights and responsibilities that begin from the very moment your injury takes place. You may not be completely clear about how to move forward, but there are a few things you should know.
If you suffered an injury on the job in the Los Angeles area and you are covered by workers’ compensation, you should know that the law protects your right to claim work comp benefits. However, some workers do not file for workers’ compensation benefits because they fear their employer will retaliate against them. However, the law also protects you from employer retaliation, and you cannot be fired from your job for filing a legitimate workers’ compensation claim.
As a supermarket worker, you may think your occupation is relatively simple. While you know you work hard, you may not think it is a particularly dangerous job. However, there are some hazards in grocery stores and supermarkets that may seriously injure you.
