I Was Injured While Working On A Construction Site And An Investigation Showed That My Employer Violated OSHA Regulations. What Will That Do To Support My Case?
The answer will depend on whether or not the violation was the cause of your injury and where your case is heard. Some courts have held that the violation of an OSHA regulation is negligence per se where an injury resulted, which means that the violation of OSHA is enough proof of the employer’s negligence. However, other jurisdictions have found that an OSHA violation can be one factor in finding the employer negligent, but cannot be the only factor.
