Common Industrial Accidents

Whether you’re a welder in a factory or an oil rig worker, any number of American jobs can be classified as “industrial” in nature. While there are some inherent risks that come with industrial occupations, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) requires all employers to be compliant with federal safety regulations, and to do their best to ensure the safety of workers. Additionally, your employer may be required to carry valid workers’ compensation insurance in the state of Pennsylvania, to cover you in the event of injuries.

Unfortunately, in spite of these regulations, many employers are not careful to warn their employees about hazards. There are also many third-parties that can enter industrial work sites, and those parties may also act in a negligent manner that could put your life at risk. As a result of these factors, more than 4,674 workers in the construction industry are killed each year, with many more workers in manufacturing, production, installation, maintenance, and repair becoming hurt or injured too.

Here are a few of the most common industrial accidents:
  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Toxic chemical exposure
  • Fires and explosions
  • Improper handling of hazardous materials
  • Getting caught in/compressed by equipment
  • Falls from a higher level, such as a ladder
  • Getting hit by falling objects
  • Forklift and vehicle accidents
  • Acts of workplace violence

Recover Fair Compensation for Your Injuries

From broken bones to amputated limbs, there are any number of serious injuries that can result from an industrial accident. Because most of these accidents impact workers, it’s possible that you could pursue a workers’ compensation claim for maximum recovery after your injury. However, in other cases, you may need to take up a third-party personal injury lawsuit instead.

At Metzger Wickersham, we promise to advise you on the best path forward, and give you the personalized and tailored counsel that you need. Since 1888, our personal injury lawyers have maintained a strong reputation for success in legal advocacy, and we pride ourselves on being highly available for our injured clients. Whether you’re in the hospital or in your home, we’ll come to you, offering the support and seasoned representation you deserve.
