Why Do Manhattan Industrial and Manufacturing Accidents Happen?

Industrial and manufacturing workers encounter considerable safety risks and hazards on a daily basis. There are many reasons that an accident might happen. The following are a few examples of how industrial and manufacturing injuries can occur:

  • Lack of protective gear
  • Improper safety protocols
  • Violation of safety protocols
  • Improper handling of dangerous chemicals
  • Faulty equipment
  • Dangerous worksite conditions, including lack of ventilation, tripping hazards, faulty wiring, or lack of emergency exits
  • Vehicle or forklift failure and collisions

Even if safety risks are part of your daily job, it is never acceptable for you to be harmed in an industrial or manufacturing accident. Our Manhattan lawyers can help you pursue justice for your injuries.

Who May Be Liable For Your Accident in Manhattan?

Identifying who may be liable for an accident can be a complicated process. Fortunately, with qualified and experienced legal representation on your side, they can help you with this aspect of your case.

When it is not immediately evident how your accident was caused, an extensive investigation may be necessary. Our experienced team of personal injury lawyers can make sure the investigation is completed thoroughly and that all negligent behavior is accounted for. Liable parties involved may include:

  • General contractors
  • Subcontractors
  • Property owners
  • Manufacturers of equipment at the site

Once the negligent parties have been identified and evidence has been gathered showing how your accident was caused, your lawyer can help you seek compensation for your injuries by filing a personal injury lawsuit. A lawsuit can help you recover compensation for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, loss of wages, and more.

Common Types of Injuries After an Industrial and Manufacturing Accident

Industrial accidents are often significant and can injure multiple people. Common injuries in these accidents include (but are not limited to) the following:

Due to the multiple hazardous chemicals and substances in many manufacturing and industrial facilities, the original accident may have a domino effect and cause an explosion or chemical reaction to also occur. This can result in devastating injuries, such as chemical burns and eye injuries.

The process of cleaning up the site of the original accident can also be dangerous. After an accident, workers may be injured by fallen debris, exposure to dangerous chemicals, electrocution, or become injured in a slip and fall accident. If you were hurt in the aftermath of an accident, you may still be entitled to compensation.

Am I Entitled to Compensation After An Industrial and Manufacturing Accident?

Industrial and manufacturing accidents can lead to severe injuries that can drastically change the rest of your life. This is why it is important that you have an experienced lawyer on your side who can ensure that you receive fair compensation that covers the full extent of your injuries and losses. While it can be fairly straightforward to account for your past and current medical expenses, you could be overlooking your non-financial losses or future expenses, particularly if your injury will require long-term treatment and prevent you from working.

In addition to filing a personal injury lawsuit, most injured workers will also qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ compensation can help provide money for your medical expenses and loss of wages while you are unable to work.

If you lost a loved one to an industrial and manufacturing accident in the Manhattan area, you may still be entitled to compensation. Although money cannot replace the loss of a loved one, it can help to ease the financial burdens your family may face due to funeral expenses, past medical expenses, loss of income, and more.

If your loved one was injured at work, you may qualify for survivor benefits through workers’ compensation. Depending on the circumstances of their accident, you may be able to pursue additional compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit. Our Manhattan lawyers can review your case for free and guide you through each step of the process for pursuing compensation and benefits.
