Industrial Accident Cases We Take On
According to the National Safety Council (NSC), the most dangerous industries are:
- Construction, which has the highest rate of workplace deaths;
- Education and health services, which has the highest rate of nonfatal injuries/illnesses resulting in time off work; and
- Agriculture, forestry, fishing, and hunting, which has the highest rate of workplace deaths per 100,000 workers.
Rouda Feder Tietjen & McGuinn takes on industrial accident cases involving all the above sectors and more. We focus our practice on advocating for those injured by the negligence of another. What’s more, our San Francisco industrial accident attorneys are particularly skilled in taking on construction site accident cases.
A Uniquely Dangerous Workplace
Construction sites can be some of the most dangerous places to visit or work. While administrators are supposed to provide the necessary protective equipment to keep people safe, they may not always do so. Even with the right equipment, there could still be malfunctions, product defects, and worker inattentiveness that could lead to injury.
Common Industrial Accidents
Industrial accidents can occur in a number of ways, the most common of which include:
- Chemical exposure
- Malfunctioning equipment
- Defective machinery
- Unsafe facility conditions
If you were injured in an accident, such as those listed above, don’t wait to consult our San Francisco industrial accident attorneys. You may be entitled to compensation in excess of what’s available through workers’ compensation. Through a third-party claim, you may be compensated for your medical expenses, lost wages and benefits, and pain and suffering, among other damages.
When Can You Sue for an Industrial Accident?
In the state of California, workers are barred from suing their employers for workplace injuries, unless an employer was egregiously negligent and caused intentional harm to the worker. Most injured workers will, therefore, need to file for workers’ comp benefits. There are, however, many cases in which an injured worker can sue a third party for compensation. These third-party liability cases are far more common than many people think.
It is unfair for accident victims to shoulder the burden of someone else’s negligence, especially if that third party failed to comply with industry laws and regulations. For example, management and owners of the property could be at fault and should be held accountable for the unsafe conditions that caused the accident. Product manufacturers may also be at fault, such as if defective machinery or equipment led to an injury.
