Many industries have high rates of worker injuries because of the nature of the work that employees engage in. Workers in industries such as these are injured on a regular basis:
- Fabrication of doors, windows, car parts and other manufactured goods
- Food processing such as the operations of the Campbell Soup Company
- Petroleum industry and petroleum service companies engaged in gas and oil extraction and processing
- Hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking
- Oil and mineral refinery operations
- Chemical processing
Industrial workers are often in close proximity with heavy machinery and hazardous chemicals. Working conditions can be unduly hot, cold, dusty, noisy, smoke-/fume-filled and close to rapidly moving machine parts and tools. Rules, regulations, protective gear and refined processes may reduce the risk of injuries, but they do not always prevent them. Accidents happen.
Dangerous Jobs Put Workers At Risk For Injury
If you were seriously injured in a manufacturing accident, you should not only contact a workers' compensation law firm, but one like Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo that can evaluate your case for any potential third-party claims, as well. If a manufacturer, a property owner or a subcontractor caused your accident through negligence, you may be able to bring an injury claim or lawsuit against the negligent party. Meanwhile, an adept attorney can get your workers' compensation claim underway without delay and represent you in the event that your initial claim is denied.
