Oregon Industrial AccidentsIndustrial Accidents Angel Law PC

Attorney for Serious Construction Site Accidents in Oregon

Construction Site Accident Attorney in Portland/Metro Area

Injuries caused by industrial accidents are often times much more serious than injuries caused by other home or workplace accidents.  The weight and size of machinery, the heights involved in most industrial construction projects, combined with the inherent danger in many industrial worksites such as pressurized elements or hazardous materials result in many serious injuries across the country and in Oregon each year.

Very often unsafe work conditions are to blame for the nearly 1000 deaths in the US each year from industrial accidents.  More than 7 million people work in the Construction Industry in this country and most of the serious injuries and deaths are a result of accidents involving cranes, defective or unsafe machinery, scaffolds, exposure to dangerous gases, falls and injuries from falling objects at industrial work sites.

The most common cause of serious injuries at industrial work sites is falling.  There are many variables related to falls in the industrial setting but one common example is where a worker either accidentally walks off of a construction elevator platform or loses his or her balance on that elevator.  When such a fall happens it's not uncommon to discover that the employer company failed to ensure workers were wearing safety belts, harnesses or lead lines.


The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) makes every effort to ensure all workplaces, including industrial workplaces, are safe.  OSHA sets safety standards, conducts workplace inspections and testing and enforces safety requirements by fining violators.  However, sometimes preventable accidents occur.  If  you, or a loved one has been seriously injured, or if a friend or family member has been killed, in an industrial accident an attorney at Angel Law PC may be able to help you pursue a claim for compensation.
