Our Work Accident Law Firm Fights for the Recovery Clients Deserve

Suffering an accident in the workplace is a devastating experience, especially if employers could have prevented the incident from occurring. According to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration, over 2 million workplace accidents and 5,000 deaths took place in 2017. A vast number of these accidents were preventable. Unfortunately, for too many companies, worker safety is less important to employers than productivity and efficiency.

Experiencing an accident on the job is overwhelming because it robs employees and families of their physical, mental, and financial well-being.

Facts About Work Accidents

Statistics show that injuries and illnesses frequently occur in workplaces nationwide. They also show that if employers implemented or followed safety regulations, many of these injuries, illnesses, and deaths could have been prevented. Employers must properly train employees and remove all workplace hazards to mitigate the risks of the workplace.

Research shows the danger of injuries in the workplace, including:

  • About 50,000 workers have died from occupational illnesses a year—about 150 workers killed per day.
  • Every year, over 24,000 workers suffered from serious injuries, and 800 workers are killed because of workplace violence.
  • The fall protection in the construction industry was the most violated OSHA standard in 2013.

Corpus Christi Work Accident FAQ

What Are the Most Common Work Accidents in Corpus Christi?

Workplace injuries can occur in any occupation—especially when employers fail to provide a safe work environment for employees. Serious injuries can result in any workplace accident, forcing survivors to undergo extensive medical treatment, depending on the severity of the situation. These injuries have long-term consequences for employees and their families, taking away their financial stability while burdening them with huge medical bills.

Countless injuries can occur on the job, including:

As a plant and refinery hub in Texas, Corpus Christi is the location of workplaces that are filled with dangers for workers. Each day, plant workers in the area face the risk of explosions, toxic exposure, and other industrial dangers. Employers are aware of these hazards, and it's their legal and moral obligation to protect their employees from them.

What Causes Injuries on the Job?

Although workplace accidents can occur for different reasons, employer negligence is one of the most common reasons. Carelessness from an employer or co-worker can cause employees to sustain serious and even catastrophic injuries. However, there are a host of factors that lead to major work injuries, and some of them occur years prior to an incident.

There are many forms of negligence that can lead to injury, including:

  • Equipment Failures
    It is common for equipment to fail and cause an injury because the employer failed to keep it in good condition. Some of the most dangerous machinery is usually industrial, vehicle, hand-held, or electrical.
  • Falling Objects & Flying Debris
    Flying objects and debris can hit a worker in the head and cause severe head injury. This usually occurs in construction sites, logging sites, factories, warehouses, and shipyards.
  • Slips & Falls
    Slippery or cluttered floors can lead to slip and fall injuries. These accidents usually occur in warehouses, ships, and drilling rigs.
  • Failure to Comply with Safety Regulations
    The government has set safety standards and regulations for employers to prevent accidents. Unfortunately, many employers fail to obey these regulations—putting workers in danger.
  • Inadequate Inspections
    Employers should inspect equipment on a regular basis to ensure that all equipment is working correctly to reduce workplace hazards. Inspections should be conducted on equipment such as ladders, scaffolds, derricks, and cranes.
  • Insufficient Training
    Every employee should receive the proper training to help them identify potential risks in the workplace and what to do to avoid them.
