Injuries caused by industrial accidents are often much more serious than
those caused in home or common workplace accidents. The inherent danger
in many industrial worksites is attributed to the weight and size of machinery,
the height of most industrial construction sites, and pressurized or hazardous
materials. All of these circumstances could result in serious injuries
to workers but do not serve as a viable excuse, as most accidents are
entirely preventable with proper safety regulations and maintenance.
Even the Most Common Causes of Industrial Accidents Can Be Prevented
Unsafe work conditions are to blame for nearly 1000 industrial accident-related
deaths in the United State every year. We believe that all of the hardworking
people in the American construction industry should not have to come to
work each day and be worried that a serious accident could leave them
debilitated and struggling to pay their bills. By pursuing justice and
financial compensation for our clients, we can hold negligent supervisors
and owners accountable, and hopefully prevent such
catastrophic injuries from ever happening again.
Industrial accidents that lead to lifelong disabilities or
wrongful deaths often involve:
- Defective machinery
- Exposure to dangerous gases
- Falling objects
The most common cause of serious injuries at industrial worksites is falling.
While many variables relate to falls in such a setting, frequently the
accidents involve a construction elevator platform. When these incidents
are properly investigated, it is not uncommon to discover that the employer’s
company failed to ensure that workers were always wearing safety belts,
harnesses, or lead lines.
When OSHA Just Is Not Enough, Call In the Marines
The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
makes noteworthy efforts to ensure that all workplaces are safe. By establishing
safety standards, conducting workplace inspections, and imposing strict
fines on violators of their policies, OSHA has undoubtedly helped reduce
industrial accidents throughout the years. When they do occur, however,
you will need to take matters into your own hands and retain the help
of former Marine and experienced trial lawyer, Patrick Angel.
