Have you recently suffered injuries while on another’s commercial property or workplace? If so, you may be a victim of negligent supervision on Maui and may have the right to file a lawsuit.
Business owners in the state of Hawaii are required to provide a safe environment for guests and other people reasonable expected to be on their property. The areas include parking lots, parking garages, or the business buildings themselves. Examples of negligent supervision include negligent hiring (failure to conduct a proper background check before hiring someone who may pose a threat), negligent retention (failing to reassign or let go of an employee after learning they are unfit for the job) and negligent supervision (failure to properly train, supervise and control the actions taken by company workers or on the premises).
Occasionally, unforeseen accidents can happen, but the negligent behavior of a business owner is often alleged in personal injury cases. If a business owner fails to provide a safe and healthy work environment, you may be at risk of suffering an injury as a result.
Allowing dangerous or harmful activity to continue is unacceptable. If you or a loved one has suffered as a result of negligent supervision you should contact an attorney and determine whether to file a lawsuit for negligent supervision on Maui.
How can you make a claim for negligent supervision in the workplace on Maui and protect your rights?
If you’ve suffered from an illness, injury or an accident on a business owner’s property, the most important thing to consider is reporting the incident as soon as it happens. If there’s evidence that the defendant business owner did not enforce reasonable security measures to protect you as the victim from a foreseeable incident, you may initiate legal action against that business owner.
Common examples of negligent supervision in the workplace on Maui include:
- Failing to stop and prevent foreseeable violent behavior of employees, bullying and threats in the workplace;
- Failing to provide training and supervision for the use of dangerous tools or chemicals which may result in injuries in the area;
- Allowing employees under the influence of alcohol or drugs to operate machinery.
In situations such as these, employers may be held responsible not only for their own negligence, but also for the negligence of their employees. If negligent supervision leads to reckless behavior and misconduct, the employer could be found liable for negligent supervision in the workplace on Maui.
