Accidents that occur at industrial facilities can cause some of the most serious and life-altering injuries and illnesses. Industrial accidents can occur at businesses involved in the manufacturing, processing or handling of any products, goods, hazardous materials or chemicals. Texas also plays host to numerous refineries and industry related companies. These employers, as well as others throughout the state, often use large and dangerous industrial equipment that commonly results in serious injuries and fatalities of industrial workers. Some common industrial accidents may involve:
- Chemical/toxic exposure
- Faulty equipment
- Injuries caused by slips or falls
- Dangerous machinery
Similar to construction accidents and offshore injuries, industrial accidents that cause injury due to the negligence of companies or their failure to comply with OSHA regulations are grounds for personal injury claims. Industrial companies, foundries and plants are legally obligated to keep their employees safe from the hazardous conditions and dangerous machinery common in their field. When companies are determined to be at fault or acting without reasonable care, injured industrial workers may be eligible to receive monetary compensation for any damages they suffered while on the job.
