Industrial Accident Attorney in Portland
Choose An Experienced Construction Accident Attorney To Represent You
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.
At Angel Law, P.C., our Portland construction accident lawyer has taken a deliberate and exclusive focus on personal injury cases, giving our clients excellent representation and uninterrupted commitment. In fact, we only accept a handful of cases each year to ensure that no details are ever overlooked and that our clients never feel rushed or disrespected.
