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 5,333 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.
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Toxic chemical exposure
- Fires and explosions
- Getting hit by falling objects
- Improper handling of hazardous materials
- Getting caught in/compressed by equipment
- Forklift and vehicle accidents
- Acts of workplace violence
- Falls from a higher level, such as a ladder
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.
