Safety Device Removal
In Ohio, an employer is generally immune from suit for its negligence or its recklessness. Ohio law does hold employers liable when they remove a guard or safety device from a machine or job site.
If your employer removed the safety guard to speed production or has removed or knowingly failed to install any safety device you should consult with one of our attorneys if you have been injured as a result. If your attorney can show that the guard was taken off, then there is a presumption that the employer intended to injure the employee.
