When Companies Don't Value Safety, We Step In

Texas’ massive industrial sector powers the state’s equally large economy. Each day, workers flood into industrial workplaces across the state and nation that have stood for decades. For more than a century, American industry has grown enough to make the country a global powerhouse. As this economy progressed, so did the laws protecting those who built it. Unfortunately, many employers ignore these laws and promote unsafe work environments for their employees.

Places where industrial accidents may happen include:

Each day, employees at industrial plants, refineries, and other worksites are put at unnecessary and heightened levels of risk as they work for the good of the companies that neglect their safety. Many of these companies have failed to take safety as seriously as their profit margins.

Injuries Resulting from Industrial Accidents

Industrial work environments are littered with a variety of dangers for workers. These dangers may eventually cause catastrophic injuries that forever change the life of a worker and their loved ones. As a result, employers are required to protect those that work for them.

Personal injuries that occur in industrial accidents include:

  • Electrocution and Electric Shock
  • Chemical or Thermal Burns
  • Falls
  • Toxic Exposure
  • Crushing Injuries
  • Blunt Force and Penetrating Trauma

Risk is an inherent part of many industrial jobs, but most of the accidents that occur in plants and factories are preventable. More than 5,000 people were killed on the job in 2016. The bulk of these deaths occurred due to a group of causes that OSHA calls the “Fatal Four”: falling, electrocution, death by falling objects, and death from getting caught between parts or machinery. Each of these causes of death could be reduced or eliminated with proper safety procedures—which employers are responsible for under the law.

The Occupational Safety & Health Act of 1970

In 1970, the government realized that things needed to change. Injury and death were still too common despite improved work conditions. When it was signed into law, the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 introduced sweeping reforms aimed to improve safety for the American workforce. New regulations required heightened safety requirements and provided worker awareness regarding the dangers and specific health risks of their jobs. This law served as a pivotal moment in efforts to decrease death and injury at industrial jobs.

Despite the progress made with this set of reforms, it is impossible for the government to make sure every single employer in the nation is dutifully following the law. This means that if employees suspect unsafe conditions at a job, they should immediately report them to their supervisors. When employers fail to correct a hazard and their neglect results in the harm of an employee, they must be held accountable.

Corpus Christi Industrial Injury Lawyers Fight for Texas Workers

In 2018, the Corpus Christi industrial accident attorneys at Arnold & Itkin won a settlement for a worker who sustained severe burn injuries on the job. The injuries occurred because of an explosion at a Georgia-Pacific plywood plant after volatile dust particles caught on fire. Two individuals lost their lives in the tragedy. With dedicated investigative work, our attorneys proved that negligence on the part of two companies was to blame. These companies produced components of a faulty dust collection system. A court agreed that the companies were at fault and awarded our client $39.75 million in damages.

When both companies attempted to appeal the decision, the judge examined our thorough work and decided to deny their attempts out of escaping accountability. This upheld the original court's decision and ensured our client would obtain the financial stability that he needs.

“It sends a message to all companies out there that you can’t cut corners when it comes to safety.” – Kyle Findley
