Employers Liability Defense


Hart Wagner attorneys have decades of experience defending business entities against claims by other business’s employees, including Employer Liability Law (ELL) claims at the trial court and appellate levels.  Hart Wagner defends individuals and all types of business entities against claims by injured workers, in Oregon and Washington, and in both state and federal courts.

When an accident happens at work, workers are typically prevented from suing their own employers due to workers’ compensation laws.  Those workers often assert claims against other individuals and businesses that also operate at the worksite.  General contractors, subcontractors, managers, owners, and other individuals and businesses can face liability for injuries to another entity’s employees.
