My Commitment: Putting You First

Claims For Injuries Caused By Workplace Violence

Depending on what happened, you may have a number of different ways to recover from your injuries and ensure you are compensated for what happened to you. At Dial & Associates PC, I can help you understand the laws around workplace violence and pursue claims:

  • Against the person who perpetrated the violence,
  • Under workers’ compensation laws
  • Against your employer for failing to protect you

Violence in any situation often leads to criminal investigations and charges, which means you may also be asked to testify in a criminal case against the person who injured you. Having a lawyer in your corner can make the claims process much easier and can provide you with advice if a criminal case is pursued.

Witnessing Workplace Violence

When violent actions occur at work, the impact often extends beyond the employee or employees who are injured. Coworkers who have witnessed violent acts often experience stress, anxiety and fear as a result of what they have witnessed. If you are struggling with anxiety, fear, stress or depression after witnessing violence in your place of work, you may also have a claim.

In a perfect world, it would go without saying that our workplaces should be safe and that the threat of physical violence wouldn’t exist. Unfortunately, according to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration, nearly 2 million employees report experiencing workplace violence each year. In fact, homicide is “currently the fourth-leading cause of fatal occupational injuries in the United States.” And “homicide is the leading cause of death for women in the workplace.” Our workplaces just aren’t as safe as they should be.

If you have been injured as a result of workplace violence, I can help. I’m Stephen Dial, an experienced workers’ comp attorney in Anaheim Hills. You can rely on my 35-plus years of experience in California workers’ comp.

No Out-Of-Pocket Fees

Injuries at work often negatively impact your financial position, as a result, I handle all workplace violence cases that involve civil claims on a contingency-fee basis. That means that if I accept your case, you will not be required to pay me out-of-pocket for my services.

If your case includes a claim for workers’ compensation benefits, I will handle that claim in accordance with California law, which means I will wait to get paid through a portion of your workers’ compensation benefits.
