Workplace Injury
West Virginians have a long and proud history as hard-working, blue collar people. Whether in the coal mines, surface mines, factories, chemical plants, or logging operations, work in our state is often physically difficult and often times dangerous.

While West Virginia’s has adopted a workers’ compensation system to provide some degree of compensation for those injured on the job, most overlook an additional layer of potential compensation over and above the workers’ compensation limits. This additional source of potential compensation is called deliberate intent, or commonly referred to as a “Mandolidis” claim. If your employer had knowledge of dangerous conditions on the jobsite before sending workers into that area and you were subsequently injured as a result of one of those previously known dangerous conditions, then you may have a deliberate intent claim that could entitle you to compensation above the workers’ compensation system.

While deliberate intent claims can arise from most jobsites, commonly these claims arise from mine operations, factory settings, heavy equipment operations, logging operations and other strenuous work environments where mistakes and shortcuts can cause serious injury or even death.                 

The Olivio Law Firm, PLLC has the necessary experience in deliberate intent cases. For more than a decade, the attorneys at the Olivio Law Firm, PLLC represented companies against workers’ injury claims. Now that same experience is proving beneficial to workers injured on dangerous jobsites such as mines, heavy equipment operations and logging operations. The Olivio Law Firm, PLLC understands the regulations that guide many of the dangerous jobsites. Regulations such as those set forth by OSHA, MSHA, NIOSH and others create standards that employers must meet in order to provide a safe working environment. Our deliberate intent team will thoroughly investigate your claim, retain a team of experts to support your claim and build your case for a successful outcome, through trial and appeal, if necessary.
