Columbus Intentional Tort Lawyer
There are protections for Intentional Torts in Ohio. Some arise in the workplace, but they do not necessarily have to arise that way. Here are some different types of intentional conduct that you are protected from:
Workplace Intentional Torts
Ohio’s workplace protection law is codified at R.C. 2745.01. https://codes.ohio.gov/ohio-revised-code/section-2745.01
These cases are very difficult and are strictly controlled by the language of the statute. Clear and convincing evidence of deliberate injury is required. This includes situations where there was the removal of a guard on a machine which then led to injury or death. The Courts in Ohio have set out rules, on a case by case basis, of what constitutes the removal of a safety guard which is different from a mere safety device. To determine if your case involves a true violation of this statute, please call the office.
