Industrial occupations carry a higher risk of catastrophic injury or death than other jobs.

Those who work in or around the following face potential dangers every day:

That, however, does not change the responsibility of industrial employers to provide the safest workplace possible. This includes providing proper workplace facilities, training, and equipment. Unfortunately, despite state and federal regulations, many industrial employers fall well short of fulfilling their duty. In many cases, the industrial laborers may experience severe or fatal illness as the result of exposure to toxic chemicals, gases, and hazardous materials such as asbestos.

Industrial Injury &

Accident Prevention

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 established strict standards and occupational health and safety training programs to ensure a safe workplace for American workers.

While our workplaces are less dangerous as a result of its success, industrial injuries caused by falls, plant explosions, exposure to toxic chemicals, electrocution, and other causes of workplace injuries are still common. Industrial workers are surrounded by workplace hazards that have the potential to cause a serious industrial injury or death. Fortunately, most industrial injuries are preventable, and by increasing awareness of industrial injuries and the hazards that cause them, proper safety training can reduce the risk of serious industrial injury and death.

If you are aware of a hazardous or dangerous condition that threatens the health and safety of workers in the workplace, you should notify your employer immediately. If an injury occurs after an employer has already been advised of an unsafe condition but has not taken action to correct it, the employer may be liable for the injury and, if found liable, should be punished.

By seeking punitive damages on behalf of injured workers, industrial injury lawyers can hold them accountable and help make the workplace safer.

Pursuing All Avenues of Compensation for

Industrial Injury Victims
  • Workers' Compensation

    If the industrial employer participates in the state's workers' compensation insurance system, an injured worker or family of a killed employee may seek medical, disability or death benefits through a workers' comp claim. The employee or family does not need to show the employer was at fault to recover. However, these benefits are limited to certain time periods, and not all employers carry workers' compensation insurance.

  • Maritime Claims

    In some cases, a worker may be injured while working on an offshore oil drilling rig or platform, which may entitle them to remedies under general maritime law, such as maintenance and cure or through federal statutes such as the Jones Act, LHWCA, or Death on High Seas Act.

  • Social Security Disability Benefits

    If an industrial worker suffers a mental or physical disability as a result of an industrial accident or injury, and the disability has lasted or is expected to last for more than a year, the worker may be eligible for Social Security benefits in addition to other relief.

  • Personal Injury & Wrongful Death Claims

    If your industrial employer carries workers' compensation insurance, then your sole remedy would be through a workers' comp claim. However, a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit can be filed against employers who do not participate in the state's workers' compensation system or when the accident is the result of especially reckless conduct or the negligence of a co-worker or third party. In many cases, a personal injury or wrongful death claim may provide greater compensation than would otherwise be available.

In many cases, we have been able to persuade the other side to make the settlement offer, which provides a much timelier resolution for our clients than trial and allows them to start the next chapter. Knowing that settlement is not always an option, our attorneys also thrive in court. Our track record features a collection of substantial verdicts and settlements obtained for our clients, including multiple multi-million dollar awards.
