Industrial Accidents

Experienced attorneys representing workers injured in industrial accidents in Eastern Connecticut

Industrial accidents can result in severe injuries, limiting one’s ability to remain employed or enjoy their daily life. While workers’ compensation benefits can provide some relief after an industrial accident, it often isn’t enough to cover major medical bills and other expenses.

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury at a factory or industrial site, you may be able to pursue additional claims for compensation if it is determined that a negligent third party other than your employer was responsible for causing the industrial accident.

Industrial Accident Examples

Some examples of accidents at factories and industrial work sites include:

  • Explosions due to natural gas or faulty equipment
  • Structural collapse

We have represented people who have been injured in workplace accidents at factories and industrial sites, including accidents caused by:

  • Defective or negligently constructed scaffolding
  • Improper loading techniques
  • Improperly operated or defective machinery or equipment, including forklifts, conveyor belts, and welding rods
  • Slippery surfaces that led to falls

How We Can Help

Several corporations and organizations may have ownership of a building, provide the equipment used at a business, or otherwise be involved in a factory or industrial site where an accident occurs. These accidents also raise issues involving state and federal regulations, including those set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). As a result, it can be difficult to unravel who is liable in these accidents, and the resulting litigation is extremely complex.

Over the years, Anderson Trial Lawyers has handled several cases arising from large explosions at Connecticut factories and businesses. We work with accident investigators, safety and OSHA experts, and other professionals to determine who is liable for injuries sustained in an accident.

Even if an industrial accident has not resulted in an apparent injury, it is important that you speak with an experienced industrial accident attorney immediately to protect your future. Some effects of an industrial accident, such as illnesses caused by exposure to toxic substances, can take years to develop.

I could not have asked for an easier, stress free way to handle my legal business. I dealt with Mike mostly and it was a pleasure, but the staff was great too! Definitely a positive experience and a PROFESSIONAL I'm glad to have in my circle.

For thirty years, we have never faced a vendor-related contract failure... but it finally happened.We turned to the compassionate team at Anderson and Anderson, for our goal was a resolution that met the needs of clients and agency but didn't turn into something nasty or not reflective of our corporate culture.Chris and his team at Anderson and Anderson were professional, calm and supportive. Through a strong and guiding presence, they helped us successfully negotiate a settlement with a vendor that failed to deliver as promised.While it was a challenge to experience this process, Chris translated the legal-ease and clearly protected our best interests and that of our client. We could not have been more pleased or grateful for his guidance and support.I can clearly envision how he would protect those injured and in need of a skilled advocate. We had to go to court, and other clients may have to do so, as well. Ultimately it really matters who you choose to be your representative: someone who says "they will fight for you," or someone who has a proven record of walking into a courtroom to fight on your behalf.
