Industrial Workers' Accidents Archives

Company could have done more to prevent workplace injuries

A California company is facing repercussions after an investigation revealed the presence of safety hazards in the facility. These hazards and a lack of safety protocols resulted in workplace injuries over the course of several years. In four years, from 2010 to 2014, there were 15 instances in which workers were sprayed with sulfuric acid.

Crane collapse leads to workplace injuries for 3 workers

The cause of a recent crane collapse at a California refinery was just determined to be human error caused by the operator of the crane. At this point, representatives from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) are investigating the accident that left three workers suffering from workplace injuries. This accident is just one in a series of troubling accidents and incidents that have occurred at the plant over the last few years.

Industrial workers have rights after suffering workplace injuries

Those who are employed in industrial jobs face an inherently higher risk of injuries or work-related illnesses. Despite the potential hazards, these workers have rights that must be protected when workplace injuries occur. After an on-the-job accident, it is critical to work with a lawyer who is experienced in workers' rights and workers' compensation benefits in California.

Filing a claim for rightful benefits after a work injury

It is frustrating to suffer an injury at work, especially when it prevents you from working and earning your full pay check. While there are legal options available to injured California workers, the system can be complex and it is not always easy to get the benefits that you deserve. For that reason, it is important to have the help of a lawyer as soon as possible after a work injury in order to properly complete the claim and navigate a possible denial. 

Man succumbs to fatal workplace injuries after forklift accident

Workers in the industrial sector in California are exposed to a variety of dangerous situations every day. One of the hazards that has been linked to thousands of workplace injuries and deaths is the forklift. Federal regulators expect company owners to ensure that only properly trained workers operate forklifts, and they are also expected to provide regular safety training to those who operate the machines and those who work in the vicinity of forklifts.

Seeking deserved financial support after suffering a work injury

Every year, many Americans must deal with the financial and physical repercussions of a workplace accident or injuries from repetitive stress. This damage can result in ongoing pain, medical bills, lost wages from missed work and more. When a work injury has negative and long-term implications for your life, you need to know what legal options are available.

OSHA investigates 2 amputation work injury incidents at 1 site

California workers in industrial industries may not always be aware of the multitude of safety hazards they are exposed to every day. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration recently investigated a manufacturing plant in another state after two workers each suffered an amputation work injury. It is alarming that investigators found multiple safety violations and issued no less than 22 citations.

Repetitive stress injuries are a valid type of work injury

Sometimes, a person's job requires an activity that can take a physical toll after months or years of the same action. This type of work injury develops over time, ultimately leaving a victim in pain and perhaps unable to do his or her job. Although these types of injuries are not the direct result of an accident, it is possible that those who suffer from repetitive stress injuries could be eligible for financial compensation.
