Bordas & Bordas has handled a wide variety of workplace injury cases, particularly "deliberate intent" type injuries. In West Virginia, when a person is injured at work through circumstances reflecting deliberate intent on the part of the employer to subject the employee to a dangerous condition, liability over and above that allowed by workers' compensation may be imposed.
Bordas & Bordas cases such as Evans v. Allied Waste , wherein a garbage truck driver was compelled to operate an overloaded garbage truck with insufficient brakes, have resulted in major settlements for plaintiffs.
Additionally, workers are often injured in the workplace as a result of actions not by their employer, but by third-party contractors. Bordas & Bordas has a significant track record of obtaining verdicts and settlements when third-party companies injure the employees of others in the workplace.
