Industrial And Construction Accidents Lawyers

According to a September 20, 2012, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics report, Texas led the nation in a number of categories of industrial accidents, including:

  • Fires and explosions
  • Falls, slips and trips
  • Exposure to harmful substances or environments
  • Death by contact with objects or equipment

This particular report focused on fatal accidents. Accidental injuries are also common in industrial environments that put workers at risk. Burn injuries, loss of limbs and other serious injuries bring great liabilities and losses to accident victims, including:

  • Medical bills
  • Time off work
  • Rehabilitation and disability accommodation costs

Entire families suffer great hardships when industrial workers are injured. Many people assume that injuries in industrial settings are solely workers' compensation cases. However, experienced workplace injury lawyers also review industrial accidents carefully in search of evidence of third-party liability. If a person or agency other than the employer was at fault, the injured industrial worker may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit, tapping into more resources.
