Baytown Industrial Accident Attorneys
Billions Won for by Baytown Industrial Accident Lawyers
For over 100 years, the industrial wheels of America have relentlessly turned and made this country the economic powerhouse of the world. American innovation has been the engine that has made the wheels turns and workers have been the fuel that makes everything work together. Through the years, the American worker has experienced an evolution at the workplace. Initially placed in constant danger from heavy machinery and unsafe conditions, workers have fought for the safety of future generations.
Today, industrial accidents still often occur in the following settings:
- Oil Rigs and Barges
- Chemical Plants
- Construction Sites
Today, workers enjoy laws and regulations that have drastically decreased the amount of danger they experience while on the job. Unfortunately, the companies that rely on workers for profit do not always faithfully follow these regulations. As a result, neglectful companies still place workers at unnecessary and unlawful risks. Our Baytown industrial accident attorneys want to shine a light on harmful industrial practices.

A Variety of Injuries
Though each industrial injury can be an excruciating experience, they manifest in several different ways depending on circumstance. Due to the naturally hazardous nature of industrial settings, workers must be protected from numerous accidents. OSHA has even named a specific group of four workplace death causes because they’re so common; the organization calls them “the Fatal Four.”
Common industrial injuries include:
The OSH Act of 1970: A Century of Reform
Beginning in the late 18th century and then extending into the 19th century, the Industrial Revolution forced American companies to address the poor and hazardous conditions that workers faced each day on the job. Laws and regulations slowly imparted confidence into the daily routine of the American worker. The struggle for safety came to a point when the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 was made law. This law made companies responsible for workplace safety. Notably, it required companies to educate workers about safety so they could protect themselves.
You have the authority to report a problem. If you think your employer is violating the safety of you and your coworkers, do not hesitate to report it to a supervisor. If a company willfully neglects the safety and concerns of workers, they may be held liable when the unfortunate event of an industrial accident occurs.
