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.
