Industrial Accidents

Any type of negligence in a factory, drilling operation, gas storage facility or other industrial setting can put workers at risk of serious injury or death. If you were injured or a loved one was killed in an industrial accident, now is the time when you could benefit from legal advice.

Holding Negligent Parties Accountable

When a serious accident occurs in an industrial setting, companies often steer employees to filing a workers’ compensation claim. While workers’ compensation can provide needed financial help at a critical time, it may not be your only source of recovery.

If your injury was caused by the negligence of another party, you may be entitled to pursue a lawsuit against the negligent party. Examples of negligence in industrial accidents include:

  • Chemical spills
  • Improper storage or handling of dangerous chemicals
  • Gas explosions
  • Plant explosions
  • Drilling accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Unsafe equipment
  • OSHA safety violations
  • Faulty electrical work

In exchange for providing workers’ compensation, employers are generally protected from employee lawsuits for on-the-job injuries, except in cases of extreme negligence. However, other parties such as contractors, suppliers and equipment manufacturers are not protected.

Contingency fee representation: Typically, our lawyers handle industrial accident cases on a contingency basis. This means we do not charge attorney fees unless we recover compensation for you.
