Texas On-The-Job Industrial Work Injuries

On-the-Job Industrial Injuries

Employees may suffer from work injuries in any setting, but jobs in manufacturing plants, warehouses, construction, and other industrial settings present more inherent hazards than other lines of work due to heavy equipment, hazardous materials, and other potentially dangerous aspects of industrial jobs.

Industrial injuries are often more severe than other work injuries and may lead to permanent disability. In addition to physical pain, industrial injury victims suffer as well from the financial strain placed on them and their families due to long-term medical care and time out of work.

Unfortunately, employer negligence is to blame for many industrial injuries; when this is the case, you may be eligible to file a claim against the negligent party. In the aftermath of an industrial accident, it is vital to have strong and effective legal representation to protect your rights and help you obtain compensation for your injuries and losses.


Industrial Injuries and Workers’ Compensation

When employees suffer from an industrial injury or other work injuries, they may receive benefits through a workers’ compensation claim if their employer carries workers’ compensation insurance. However, because Texas does not require private employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance, many employers do not carry it.

If your employer does not subscribe to workers’ compensation or if workers’ compensation benefits are insufficient to cover your medical bills, lost wages, and other losses, a lawsuit against your negligent employer may be necessary to recover damages for your injuries.


Common Industrial Injuries and Hazards

Industrial accidents can affect one employee or a large group of people, depending upon the nature of the accident. Victims may experience a variety of injuries including brain injuries, spinal injuries, broken or fractured bones, severe burns, electrocution, and severed limbs.

  • Heavy equipment and machinery
