Industrial worksites pose a number of inherent dangers. Therefore, there are strict government and industry safety standards that must be followed to protect workers. Our industrial accident attorneys have significant experience helping injured industrial workers recover compensation for serious injuries that result from failure to follow proper safety procedures or negligence.
Our attorneys have successfully settled and tried numerous personal injury cases involving industrial accidents. We have handled cases involving foundries, pipe mills, steel mills, manufacturing plants, utility workers, and construction workers. These cases are exceedingly complex, involving the interpretation of OSHA regulations, co-employee liability issues, the effect of workers’ compensation laws, company safety rules, and the failure to follow industrial safety standards.
Some of the common issues involved in industrial accidents include the lack of machine guards, exposed electrical wiring, unsafe equipment, and failure to provide safety equipment.
Industrial accident injuries are often severe, causing lifelong disabilities and in many cases prevent people from returning to work. Serious burns, eye injuries, amputations, head trauma, and fatalities often occur in industrial accidents. Our attorneys work closely with victims of industrial accidents and their families to help them receive the compensation necessary to recover from their injuries and move forward with their lives.
