What are industrial accidents?
Industrial accidents can occur in a plant, factory or any other industrial facility. Due to the nature of industrial work, such as working with heavy machinery and dangerous chemicals, the accidents can be catastrophic. Workers can sustain severe burns, broken bones, amputations, illnesses or can even wrongful death. Industrial accidents happen for a wide variety of circumstances, including but not limited to:
- Slip and fall injuries
- Injuries caused by faulty equipment or unsafe machinery
- Injuries from exposure to toxins such as asbestos
- Truck accidents
What about Workers’ Comp.?
It is possible to recover damages from an employer’s Workers’ Compensation policy. However, if the employer does not have Workers’ Comp, if the compensation is insufficient, or if the accident was caused by a third party, it is important to speak with an experienced industrial accident attorney who can protect your rights. Workers’ Compensation often will not cover all the expenses that come with a catastrophic injury, and assuming you are a victim of such an injury or know someone who is, getting anything less than full compensation is unacceptable.
Third parties who may be at fault in industrial accidents can include other employees, the manufacturer of a defective product, the owner of an unsafe property or any outside individuals involved in your accident. By exploring all the factors involved in your accident, you may be able to receive compensation for your medical bills and any pain and suffering.
