Why You Need an Industrial Accident Lawyer

Injuries in industrial settings can lead to severe, life-altering consequences. In some tragic cases, these incidents can be fatal, leaving loved ones suffering in the deceased's absence.

Along with physical pain and emotional suffering, factory accidents can result in significant financial strain due to medical bills. With your loss of income, you may be unsure of how you will cover these expenses. That is why it is essential for injured workers or surviving family members to speak with a factory accident attorney at our offices in Fresno and Salinas.

Additional Causes of Factory Accidents

In addition to the above examples of industrial accidents, our law firm has also worked on cases involving defective equipment or machinery, recklessness by coworkers, and sprains from repetitive motions. If you or a loved one was injured while working in a factory, it's crucial that you speak with a lawyer at our Fresno or Salinas offices.

Your Employer’s Responsibilities in the Workplace Prevention of Industrial Accidents

Employers throughout California owe a duty of care to their workers and are responsible for implementing certain standards to protect employees. This duty of care includes:

  • Providing thorough and ongoing training
  • Creating safe traffic patterns on factory floors
  • Installing sufficient lighting
  • Requiring the use of appropriate safety equipment, such as helmets, goggles, and earplugs
  • Maintaining all machinery and vehicles
  • Double-checking and repairing safety systems, including automatic shut-off mechanisms
  • Ensuring appropriate supervision at all times

When employers have failed to fulfill their responsibilities and an industrial accident happens, injured victims can pursue financial compensation.

Filing an Injury Claim vs. Workers' Compensation Considering Your Options After an Accident

There are pros and cons to filing a personal injury claim and filing a workers' compensation claim. By working with an injury lawyer, you can learn which option is better for your situation.

Personal Injury Claim

In some cases, a personal injury claim may be the most appropriate course of action. If so, you will need to prove your employer had a duty of care to workers. Then you will need to show that they neglected that responsibility and that your injury was the direct result of their negligence. Other times, malfunctioning work equipment can make a defective product case more appropriate. With these cases, third parties, such as an engineer or manufacturer, may share liability.

Workers' Compensation Claim

Workers' compensation is one of the most common and effective ways to obtain financial support after a factory accident. Almost all employers are required to carry this type of insurance, which can cover medical bills and lost wages. If your accident was severe and you are permanently disabled, workers' comp can provide lifelong financial assistance. During your free consultation, Mr. Fisher can explain the benefits of workers' compensation and its limitations.

Wrongful Death

If an accident resulted in the death of a spouse or family member, an attorney can help you pursue a wrongful death claim. This would mean the liable party demonstrated negligence that caused the accident and led to the loss of life.
