Houston Workplace Violence Lawyers
Before anyone is hired at a new company, the employer should perform background checks and adequate screening. Background checks alert employers to individuals who have violent criminal histories.
However, when employers fail to screen employees, they jeopardize the safety of every employee, tenant and guest in their building. At Chandler McNulty, we’re committed to prosecuting corporate defendants in civil courtrooms whose negligence endangered the public. Our attorneys represent individuals in Houston and throughout Texas who were victims of workplace violence, including:
Should The Employer Have Known Violence Was A Threat?
There is a saying, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” When employers hire someone they know, they might choose to overlook critical details about the new hire. They may decide that the new person’s short temper or hot-headed temperament will not affect his or her ability to perform the job well. However, they ignore the possible dangers that could arise if the new hire loses his or her temper.
It is a tragedy when workplace violence occurs, but it is even more tragic to realize how easily it could have been prevented. Employers who fail to screen new employees or who overlook dangerous temperaments need to be held liable, and that is exactly what our lawyers do.
As trial lawyers, we’re committed to making America safer, and we’re starting with corporations that fail to maintain safe property.
