Industrial Accidents

Industrial accidents are disasters that occur at industrial or construction sites, typically caused either by negligence or incompetence on the part of a company and/or its owners, managers, supervisors, or employees. Explosions, fires, falls from height, structure collapses and heavy equipment accidents that occur at manufacturing plants, construction sites, factories, and refineries are common examples of industrial accidents. Industrial work environments often pose serious dangers to employees and independent contractors. Employees who are injured in industrial and construction accidents while performing duties required in the course of their employment may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. An experienced personal injury attorney can help industrial accident victims recover damages for their medical bills, physical pain, emotional suffering, time missed from work, and diminished ability to perform daily tasks after the accident.

Sadly, industrial and construction accidents often result not only in a high number of injuries, but in a high number of fatalities, as well. On average, over 1,000 people are killed each year in industrial  accidents in the U.S. If your loved one has been killed in an industrial accident, you may have a claim against his or her employer for wrongful death. An experienced personal injury attorney can investigate the cause of the accident, evaluate your injuries or death of your loved one, and advise you on the best course of action in your industrial accident case. Call the Mobile personal injury attorneys at (251) 432-8003 today to explore your legal options.

Most industrial accidents could have been prevented if the parties at fault had adhered to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and remained mindful of the potential dangers inherent in industrial workplaces. Unfortunately, with money as a motivating factor, industrial, manufacturing, and construction companies often cut corners in order to save money. By using untrained workers and failing to adhere to costly safety guidelines, companies can save money. However, doing so places the lives of workers on the line. That is why it is important, if you or someone you love has been injured or killed in an industrial accident, to obtain legal representation as soon as possible in order to seek justice against those responsible.
