Every employer, regardless of the industry, has certain responsibilities to its workers. First, it must provide all necessary safety equipment to employees. This includes everything from hard hats and goggles to accessible fire extinguishers. Employers are also required to provide necessary safety training to workers. Industrial workplaces can be dangerous. Therefore, workers need to know how to work with and around hazards while staying safe. Finally, employers must clearly mark all dangers with safety signs. Dangers like live wires or hazardous chemicals need to be carefully marked. This tells employees to avoid hazards or handle them with care.
Injuries from Industrial Accidents
Injuries from industrial accidents are usually very severe. Some of the most common injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Shockwave injuries
- Electrical, chemical, and thermal burns
- Spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones
- Crushing injuries
- Lung injuries
How to Handle an Industrial Accident Claim
Walker can assist you with every aspect of the legal process. This begins with investigating the case to isolate the causes of the accident. Uncovering evidence such as violations of safety regulations and other types of negligence is required to help establish liability for the accident with the employer.
Alternatively, it might be possible to file a workers’ compensation claim for recovery of medical benefits and replacement for lost wages. We represent individuals and families in claims for all types of industrial injuries, as well as class actions in cases involving several, dozens or even hundreds of injured industrial workers.
