Negligent Hiring Practices & Workplace Injuries

Philadelphia Work Injury Lawyers

to be negligent in its hiring, retention, and/or supervision of that employee. This essentially means that an employer can be held legally responsible for a personal injury or wrongful death if it did not exercise reasonable care in hiring or training its employees, and this was the proximate (most likely, probable) cause of the victim’s injuries.

Marciano & MacAvoy, P.C. takes on cases involving negligent hiring practices across the state. If you or someone you love was injured because a company did not properly train, hire, or supervise an employee, we can talk to you about your right to compensation. Fault may not lie exclusively on the employee’s shoulders, if they were hired without a background check, were not properly trained, or were not supervised in the performance of their job duties. Our Philadelphia injury attorneys can help you take the appropriate steps to hold the employer responsible.

To learn more, call (215) 608-2183 and schedule a free consultation with one of our caring professionals.

Negligent Hiring, Retention & Supervision of Employees

Successfully bringing a claim involving negligent hiring practices, negligent retention, or negligent supervision will require that the plaintiff (injured party) prove:

  • The defendant (at-fault party) owed a duty of care to the plaintiff;
  • This duty was breached in some way;
  • The plaintiff suffered quantifiable injuries; and
  • The plaintiff’s injuries were caused by that breach of duty.

For example, Auto Shop A hires Joe without performing an adequate background check. Joe attacks another worker at the shop, causing serious injuries. It turns out that Joe had a history of violence, including two arrests and a conviction for aggravated assault. In this scenario, the injured worker may have grounds for a valid claim against Auto Shop A for negligent hiring practices.
