Industrial Injury Accidents
Defending Your Rights to Workplace Safety
Industrial settings are home to some of most frequent workplace injuries. Due to the nature of industrial work—high temperatures, volatile processes, and toxic chemicals—workers are more likely to suffer serious harm while on the job.
You may be especially likely to experience a serious injury if your work takes place in any of the following areas:
- Oil Drilling Sites
- Large Warehouses
- Construction Sites
Although these settings do pose inherent dangers, it is still up to the employers, managers, and trainers of these sites to protect their workers by taking thorough safety measures. In many instances, those in leadership positions fail to provide or maintain a safe working environment, and potentially catastrophic accidents occur as a direct result. Some of the most destructive accidents include:
- Explosions and fires
- Electric shocks
- Mass exposure to dangerous chemicals
- Crushing by heavy machinery
- Collapsed scaffolding
- Injuries from airborne objects or debris
Industrial injuries also include health problems caused by exposure to harmful chemicals, gases, or materials like asbestos. Arnold & Itkin LLP works to defend workers and families who have wrongfully lost a loved one to the neglect and oversight of plant managers, employers, and corporate leadership. Our goal is to bring our clients restitution for the pain and suffering they have experienced.
Standing Up to the Biggest of Oppositions
Many workers or families of workers who have been wrongfully killed are apprehensive about beginning a claim against their employers. This is largely due to the intimidation caused by the thought of going up against big corporations and insurance providers. The opposition will fight hard not to pay compensation or be held liable for deaths and injuries, and this is why your choice in representation is so important.
Arnold & Itkin has faced giants in the corporate and insurance worlds and succeeded in winning significant compensation for our clients. We are not intimidated by any defendant who owes our clients restitution for their loss, and we will do everything in our power to be sure they provide it.
Protection for Victims in Industrial Accidents
Our team understands just how many areas of your life are affected by such an incident. Not only are you forced to undergo medical treatment for your physical injuries, but you are losing wages as medical expenses stack higher and higher. In addition to all of this, you or your loved one may be suffering extreme emotional and psychological hardship from the accident.
While we are working to build your case and push for a settlement or verdict, our contingency fees can help provide the medical care you need while you wait for your compensation. Working with our Louisiana industrial accident attorneys also means that by holding employers liable for damages, we may be preventing similar workplace accidents from hurting others the way they hurt you or your loved one.
Avoiding Industrial Accident Injuries
The year 1970 saw the passing of the Occupational Safety and Health Act, which created strict codes, standards, and training programs designed to make work environments safer and prevent accidents and deaths. While OSHA is responsible for many significant improvements in the work force, many employers ignore or fail to meet these standards, and as a result, workers are wrongfully injured. The best chance we have at preventing these tragic accidents is by spreading awareness and seeking damages. By alerting an employer of any potential workplace danger you see and by punishing employers for injuries caused by negligence, we may be able to work together to make industrial settings safer places.
