Tampa Workplace Injury Lawyer
Helping Injured Workers Recover Fair Compensation
If you sustain an injury in the workplace, the cost of your care should be covered by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. However, workers’ compensation payments can be quite low and may not cover certain damages like pain and suffering. With the help of a Tampa injury lawyer from Darrigo & Diaz, you may be able to sue a negligent third party for additional damages—depending on the circumstances of your case.
For example, you may be able to collect additional compensation for any of the following reasons:
- If a third party contributed to your accident, they may be liable for damages.
- If you were injured by a defective product, the product manufacturer may be liable.
- If you were injured by a toxic product, the product manufacturer may be liable.
- If your employer does not have workers’ comp, they may be liable for damages.

Are You Being Exposed to Unsafe Working Conditions?
If you feel that your employer is requiring you to work in unsafe conditions, you should talk to an attorney about filing a complaint with the Occupation Health and Safety Administration (OSHA). This is particularly important if you have suffered injuries due to malfunctioning equipment or machinery, defective ladders, poorly designed electrical systems, and more. It is important to know your legal rights if you have been injured at your workplace.
By filing a personal injury lawsuit outside of the workers’ compensation system, you are not only fighting to ensure that you are fairly compensated for your injuries, but you may also help to ensure the safety of others by holding negligent employers accountable—which will encourage them to improve safety standards for all. Employers should not be able to get away with OSHA violations that compromise the safety and health of their workers.
