Industrial Accident Injuries
Industrial accidents include any type of workplace accident, jobsite accident, office accident or factory accident. While the no-fault worker’s compensation system covers “first-party” claims against the employer, industrial accidents can also give rise to “third-party” claims against negligent third-parties such as the manufacturers and suppliers of defective tools and equipment, cleaning service vendors, delivery personnel, warehousemen, contractors, workplace designers, or elevator/escalator manufacturers, sellers and repairmen. In conjunction with any worker’s compensation claim, an industrial accident must be analyzed for potential “third-party” claims in order to maximize the recovery for the injured worker. All too often, worker’s compensation provides only partial assistance especially where the injury is permanently disabling. With industrial accident claims it is critical to retain experienced legal counsel familiar with the detailed OSHA regulations and all applicable industry safety standards.
