Industrial accidents usually occur because the employer has failed in his or her obligation to provide a safe environment in which to work. It is especially crucial to do so in industrial fields because of the many factors that threaten worker safety. When conditions are unsafe, workers in these types of industrial fields (plant workers, construction workers, natural gas or drilling workers, and other fields) can suffer serious injury or death in mere moments. If you have been affected by an accident that was caused by such working conditions, a West Virginia industrial accidents lawyer can help.

Why Do Industrial Accidents Happen?

There is no single cause behind each type of industrial accident, as they can occur in any number of ways and for many different reasons. What they all share in common, however, is the fact that most of these accidents can be prevented.

These are some of the most common causes of industrial accidents:

  • Unsafe working conditions
  • Defective materials or equipment
  • Overworking employees
  • Lack of training given to employees
  • Lack of knowledge of the trade
  • Operating machinery without authority

As West Virginia injury attorneys, we look at each case from top to bottom to trace where the negligence occurred. We have found that many industrial accidents occur due to violations of the safety procedures. When you pursue your claim, we consider all of the variables in the case. Was there a faulty piece of equipment or a careless employee failing to oversee the workflow? We bring this to the attention of the insurance companies, allowing us to maximize the potential of your claim.

We have handled industrial accidents involving many different activities, such as:

  • Industrial Accident LawyerGas Exposure
  • Explosions
  • Fallen objects
  • Falls at the job site
  • Defective Machinery
  • Accidents involving cranes
  • Faulty or inappropriate scaffolding
  • Inadequate personal protective equipment
  • Failure to provide proper fall prevention devices
  • Accidents involving loading, unloading, and improper securement of loads
  • Improper and/or inadequate equipment at natural gas wells and drilling sites

Responsibilities of Your Employer

Your employer is required to provide a safe work environment and has the responsibility to prevent these types of incidents from occurring. Every industry has the potential for serious injury accidents if the employer doesn't meet certain legal obligations. Depending on the type of job, your employer may have specific requirements/obligations under O.S.H.A., regulations propagated by other agencies, and requirements under State and Federal Law. It is up to the employer to ensure that everyone who is working at the job site is properly trained and equipped with protective devices and the proper equipment to do their job in a safe manner.

We Can Help Strive For Recovery

In the situation where there was a failure to comply with these standards, the details may differ but the consequences are the same: injury, disability, or death for the worker and hardship for the worker's family.
