What Causes Industrial and Manufacturing Accidents in Long Island City?

There are many reasons why an industrial or manufacturing accident might occur. These types of job sites are usually high-traffic areas where workers handle dangerous machinery or harmful chemicals on a daily basis. Due to the nature of the work, even one small mistake can lead to a disaster.

Explosions, fires, and building collapses are not uncommon in these kinds of environments. Workers may also be injured while using machinery or simply walking around the building premises if there are slip and fall hazards. No matter the type of accident, the consequences may be severe.

There are a number of things that can cause an industrial or manufacturing accident. Examples include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Failure to remove slip and fall hazards
  • Failure to provide safety equipment
  • Improperly placed tools or machines
  • Improperly maintained tools and machines
  • Improperly stored chemicals
  • Machine malfunctions
  • Improper ventilation
  • Incorrect placement of machines or ductwork

Any of these factors can lead to serious accidents that could cause permanent injury, long-term disability, or even death. Because industrial and manufacturing accidents can be so serious, having the right legal team on your side can be a huge help.

Determining Liability in Long Island City Industrial and Manufacturing Accidents

Determining liability in a Long Island City industrial and manufacturing accident often requires an investigation. By conducting an investigation, a lawyer can help ensure that the right parties are held accountable for your injuries.

Recovering from industrial and manufacturing accidents is often a difficult and long process. You will likely incur financial losses, including medical bills and loss of earnings if you are unable to work. You may be entitled to compensation if the negligence of one or more of these parties led to your accident:

  • General contractors
  • Subcontractors
  • Machine manufacturers
  • Property owners

If any of these parties may be liable, the team at Shulman & Hill can begin to build a case on your behalf to hold them financially accountable for your injuries.

Regardless of how your accident was caused if you were injured while working you likely also qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. One of our Long Island City workers’ compensation attorneys can help you file a claim and can represent you if it is wrongly denied or delayed.

What Injuries Can be Caused by Industrial or Manufacturing Accidents?

Industrial and manufacturing jobs are high-risk to begin with, so the possibility for injury is immense. For example, you might suffer a severed limb or be crushed by machinery or falling materials. You could also be hit by a forklift or a vehicle. Even mistakes while operating basic machinery can lead to broken bones, amputated fingers, or similar injuries.

Burns from fires or chemicals are also common and can lead to blindness or permanent skin damage and scarring. Even the smoke or fumes from toxic substances can cause severe lung issues. In some cases, this exposure can result in fatal illnesses, like cancer.

If you have been brought in to clean up after an accident, you may also be exposed to these hazards. You could be electrocuted by faulty or damaged power lines or you might breathe in toxic chemicals that are released during an accident. If you are injured in the clean-up process after an accident, you may also be able to seek compensation for your losses.

Am I Entitled to Compensation for My Injuries?

Every case is full of unique details that need to be examined and considered by a qualified law firm like Shulman & Hill. A lawyer can look at your medical records, accident reports, and other evidence to help pursue a respectable amount of compensation for your losses and injuries. We can handle your case from start to finish and guide you through each step of litigation to make sure that you are taken care of after your accident.

If you suffered a long-term disability stemming from your accident, your lawyer can make sure this is taken into account as well. Sadly, some workers lose their lives in industrial and manufacturing accidents. If you lost a loved one in one of these accidents, our team can also help you pursue compensation for your losses as well.
