Types Of Industrial Accidents

Explosions and Fires

Proper safety protocol in industrial settings, such as power plants, chemical production facilities, and oil and gas production sites, is critical. Improper training, damaged or poorly maintained equipment, and other factors can all lead to deadly explosions and fires that can cause serious injuries, including burns, disfigurement, scarring, broken bones, amputation, or death.

Electrocution

Hiring well-trained professionals and implementing strict safety standards are vital when it comes to avoiding hazards in utility work and on construction sites. Although electrocution doesn’t always result in death, it can be a painful experience with long-lasting physical, emotional, and financial repercussions.

Chemical Exposure

When refinery, factory, pharmaceutical, and mine workers are not equipped with proper protective gear or ventilation, chemical exposure can kill or cause grave injury. In addition to causing burns and injury to the lungs, skin, and eyes, toxic chemical exposure can lead to occupational diseases, such as COPD, mesothelioma, and cancer.

Heavy Machinery

Heavy machinery is used in many different industries, including construction, materials handling, and transportation. Accidents and injuries often occur due to the defective or improperly maintained equipment. Lack of training and careless behavior when operating a forklift, backhoe, dump truck, or other heavy machinery can also lead to catastrophic injuries, such as amputation, traumatic brain injury, and paralysis.

Collapses

Buildings and scaffolding can collapse during demolition, construction, or faulty design and engineering. If you’ve been injured or have lost a loved one in a building collapse, our industrial accident lawyers can help you get the workers’ compensation benefits and maximum restitution to which you deserve.

Falling Objects and Debris

Head and eye injuries are the most common type of injury caused by falling or flying objects. Serious injury to the eyes can result in limited vision or blindness. If you’ve suffered permanent injury and are unable to do the same work you used to, you may be eligible for permanent disability benefits. Our legal team at Krivitzky, Springer & Feldman can help you understand your rights as an injured worker and fight to recover the medical and cash benefits you may have a claim to.

Workers’ Compensation For Industrial Accidents

If you have suffered an industrial injury in New Jersey, your employer is legally obligated to provide workers’ compensation benefits for your medical expenses and a portion of lost wages. After an on-the-job accident, it’s important to seek proper medical treatment right away. Notify your supervisor or HR department, and contact a workers’ comp attorney to ensure your rights are protected. Our attorneys assess your case and advise you on the course of action that’s appropriate for recovering workers’ compensation benefits.  If your employer has violated OSHA regulations or was negligent in providing a safe work environment, you may be entitled to additional compensation as well.

Third-Party Liability

Unfortunately, many companies put profits over people, which can lead to subpar equipment and working conditions and inadequate training that may result in serious injury or death. Our industrial accident attorneys thoroughly investigate what happened to find out if a third-party contractor, property owner, or manufacturer’s negligence was a factor in causing your injuries. If so, we can help you pursue a third-party liability lawsuit to recover compensation for damages, such as emotional distress, pain and suffering, and even punitive damages if appropriate.
