Employment Injury Restitution
An employment injury can affect both a worker and their household. Many employers choose to ignore safety laws that prohibit them from allowing hazardous work conditions. An employee that suffers an employment injury can gain restitution for their harm, pain and suffering, medical bills and loss of wages.
Employment Injury Suit
Motorola is being sued by ex-workers that claim the company exposed them to dangerous chemicals that resulted in defective births. This type of employment injury is claimed to have affected over 30 children that has lead to family distress, expensive healthcare bills and more.
The employees bringing the suit assert that the employment injury occurred when they were exposed to substances that were part of the semiconductor manufacturing process. The period of the employment injury includes several decades from 1965-2007.
Some of the types of employment injury that the children are victims of include blindness, epilepsy and cerebral palsy. The 71 plaintiffs claim that Motorola was aware of the hazards in the 1980’s.
Safe Workplace Laws
Every worker has the right to avoid an employment injury by working in a safe environment. Employers must cooperate with OSHA in order to abide by all federal and state laws that are in place to protect the health and safety of employees. If an employer violates the law, they can be fined and sanctioned.
