The Risks of an Industrial Accident
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics or BLS, there were at least 2.8 million reported non-fatal workplace injuries in 2018, which is a number consistent with previous years. Although workplace accidents have been steadily declining over the last several decades due to widespread safety improvements and increased regulations, many industries are still prone to worker accidents, both fatal and otherwise. This is especially true in industrial occupations such as manufacturing, construction, and gas and oil rig work.
In fact, one study using data from the BLS Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries found that these industrial jobs are some of the most dangerous in America:
- Logging and forestry worker
- Dock/fishing worker
- Heavy machine operator
- Transportation worker
- Maintenance and machinery worker
- Woodworking machine operator or tender
The consequences of an industrial accident – whether it’s a slip and fall accident or a crushing or “degloving” injury – can not only be traumatizing, but fatal too. Because industrial occupations rely on so much heavy machinery, workers without proper supervision or training may easily become hurt on the job. Even when industrial workers are completely trained, licensed, and certified, another person’s negligence or lack of care on the job site can result in injuries.
Some of the most common injury risks associated with industrial accidents:
- Crushing injuries
- Machine entanglement or malfunction
- Scaffolding failure
- Vehicle crashes and collisions
- Toxic chemical exposure
- Falling objects
- Falling from heights/ladders
- Muscle sprains and strains from overuse
- Slip, trip and fall accidents
- Lack of protective gear
Industrial Accident Cases We Can Handle
After an industrial accident, it’s important to speak with a qualified attorney who can represent your interests and seek fair compensation for your injuries.
