The law guarantees every American worker the right to work in a safe and healthy environment. Tragically, that promise is far from a reality. Workers and their families turn to Raynes McCarty nearly every day after accidents that occur in almost every work setting, including construction sites, steel mills, oil refineries, chemical processing plants, and distribution facilities.
Raynes McCarty attorneys are committed to fighting for the financial security that affected families require. We also make great efforts to ensure that more workers aren’t hurt in the same way. Many Raynes McCarty cases result in safer work practices, redesigned products, and revamped training. Our lawyers have written manuals and articles on saftey in the workplace, and one attorney has received the Karen Silkwood award from the Philadelphia Area Project of Occupational Safety and Health (PhilaPOSH) for his tireless efforts to promote workplace safety.
