The Risks of an Industrial Accident
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics or BLS, there were at least 2.2 million reported non-fatal workplace injuries in 2021, 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
Common Types of Industrial Accidents & Injuries
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 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. In some cases, you may be covered by workers’ compensation benefits that will account for your losses. In cases involving catastrophic, life-altering injuries, you may also need to consider civil legal action against a negligent party.
At Cunningham Bounds, we’ve been helping injury victims explore their legal options for over 60 years. Our award-winning and dedicated attorneys are here to help workers in Alabama and the rest of the U.S. after their lives are disrupted by an industrial accident.
