Chicago Industrial Accident Lawyers
Industrial workplaces generally contain numerous potential hazards to workers. OSHA regulations should guide responsible parties in safe procedures in industrial settings. All too often, however, investigations following accidental injuries uncover human error — negligence — as the cause of accidents. Manufacturers, installers, repairers, supervisors and other potentially negligent individuals and organizations may fail to do what they should in order to protect employees.
Industrial settings where accidental injuries often happen include:
- Manufacturing plants
- Repair facilities
- Chemical processing plants
Common industrial accidents often involve equipment such as:
- Punch presses
- Power saws
- Drill presses
- Steel mills
- Grain elevators
- Heavy-duty equipment
- Automated machinery
Industrial accidents range from minor to serious or catastrophic. They may include broken bones, burn injuries to amputations, crush injuries, head injuries, back injuries, neck injuries, and spinal cord injuries. Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd. takes on a wide variety of industrial accident cases, zealously representing the injured and surviving family members.
