Worker’s compensation statutes provide a remedy and compensation for people injured at work. In some situations injuries result in the workplace from conditions that are unsafe. When employers are aware of dangerous circumstances within the workplace they have an obligation to correct the problem. If they fail to do so, they can be held responsible for the resulting injuries and the tragic deaths that occur. Defective processes or defective machinery in the workplace can also result in injury and/or death. In these situations, if the employer is aware of the defective or unreasonably dangerous condition, they may share in responsibility for the harm that results from exposure to the danger along with the manufacturers that created the unsafe equipment or circumstance. These types of claims are recognized as employment intentional torts.
