High-Risk Occupations in Portland, OR

There are many types of professions that carry their own types of risk for injury. While workers’ compensation does cover many of these injuries, it doesn’t cover everything. At the Law Offices of Peter O. Hansen, you can learn the probable outcome of your workers’ comp case and determine other legal options that might better serve your needs.

Fortunately, there is a law that protects those working in high-risk occupations in Portland, OR. This is known as the Employer Liability Law. It states that those in charge of high-risk work must do everything they can to protect employees and the public. If you were injured because of a violation of this law, you could sue for damages for pain, suffering, and interference with normal activities outside of work.
