Industrial Accidents

Industrial and construction sites are some of the most dangerous places to work. Regardless of how safe you are, when other people commit safety violations, cut corners or make errors, you could be seriously injured or even killed.

If you or a loved one has suffered serious injury on the job due to an industrial accident, you are entitled to receive workers’ compensation. If your injuries were caused by another party’s negligence, you may also have a third-party claim.

Novins, York & Jacobus is committed to helping our clients to recover compensation for injuries resulting from construction accidents, industrial accidents, and defective products. Our accident investigations often reveal that a defective part, defective product, or an industrial safety violation may be responsible for a workplace or construction accident.

Industrial accidents include:

  • Gas Explosions
  • Chemical Fires
  • Coal Mine Collapses
  • Falls
  • Vehicle Accidents

Injured workers in industrial accidents may also be entitled to seek money damages for injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering from other sources in addition to their employers.

Worker’s Compensation

Any person injured on the job is entitled to workers’ compensation benefits that cover medical expenses and a percentage of lost wages. However, depending on the unique circumstances surrounding the case, there may be additional sources of compensation available for the victim and victim’s family.

OSHA

Our attorneys will work with accident reconstruction experts, examine records of safety inspections, and interview witnesses to determine whether your injuries partly resulted from violations of regulations under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
