Factory and Industrial Injury Accident

Factory and Industrial Injury Accident

Have you been injured in a factory or industrial accident?

Factories and industrial plants are high-risk environments for employees. Your job should not be more dangerous because of an unreasonable condition or a circumstance from another person or that a company has created.

Even when covered by worker’s compensation, in certain instances you may sue another party besides the employer. Factory injuries should be investigated for other potential compensation, as all too often, the damages available from worker’s compensation are inadequate to cover the costs you’ve incurred from an injury. A third-party claim may be brought against a subcontractor, a manufacturer of equipment or machinery, or property owners. It’s also possible accidents in other places of work, such as offices, salons, shops, or hospitals would also be industrial accidents.

Some of the most common types of industrial accident affecting workers include:

  • Contact with hazardous substances
  • Drivers of defective trucks or trailers
  • Manual handling accidents
  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Injuries caused by faulty work equipment
  • Accidents involving machinery
  • Industrial explosions
  • Injuries caused by falling objects
  • Accidents involving vehicles
  • Burns: chemical or fire
  • Falling from a ladders or scaffolding

Factors that might contribute to a construction accident include: holes in flooring; unsafe ladders; improperly assembled scaffolding; or falling construction debris. Local safety laws require construction companies to maintain construction sites in a condition so it is safe for employees, to inspect each job site and to provide safety programs to employees.

However, these measures are often not enough and factory and industrial accidents still occur. Industrial accidents are sometimes relatively minor, when you’ve been mild to moderately injured.

Industrial accidents might also be very serious, when there are victims who suffer serious injuries or in the worst cases spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injury, quadriplegia, paraplegia, fractured necks, back injury, broken bones, and death.

Any injured employee, contractor, or even a visitor, should talk to a factory and industrial injury accident lawyer about their possible legal rights and remedies.

The rights and remedies available to you will vary depending on each case. Most state workers’ compensation laws limit the recovery for an industrial accident under worker’s compensation. It’s possible in your case you are not eligible to be compensated for your pain and suffering, even if you are injured indefinitely.

This is why it is important to have a team of factory and industrial injury accident attorneys on your side which will pursue every legal remedy available to you to make sure your compensation is maximized for the injury you have suffered. There is no erasing an injury, but compensation can help to get you on the path to recovery.
