Industrial workplace accidents can cause devastating injuries including burns, catastrophic injuries, amputations, mesothelioma and other horrible injuries including death. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury while on an industrial site (whether on the job or not), you need qualified personal injury attorneys working on your side immediately.
Whether the injury or death is investigated by OSHA or the local authorities, if you are injured on the job, it is important for you to have your own lawyer working on your behalf immediately to oversee the investigation and protect your rights. Have no doubt that the insurance carrier will immediately assign staff to investigate the matter to protect their interests and damage your right to seek compensation.
Industrial accidents can arise out of many causes, including:
- Construction Accidents
- Refinery Accidents
- Asbestos Exposure
- Maritime Injuries
- Railroad/FELA Injuries
- Chemical Exposures
- Unsafe Equipment
- Truck Accidents
- Oil Spill Damages to Businesses and Property
- Electrocution Injuries & Death
- Many Other Workplace Incidents
Often, the injuries in an industrial accident are handled through workers compensation claims. However, injured workers may be able to pursue a claim for personal injuries if the employer has no workers compensation insurance (non-subscriber) or a third party (such as an employee of another company) is responsible for the harm. Even if an employees company has workers compensation insurance, the surviving spouse of a deceased worker can still bring an action against the employer in certain circumstances.
