Industrial Accident Lawyer Oakland

Industrial Accidents

Workers in industrial and manufacturing industries hold some of the most dangerous jobs in the world due to the risk of industrial accidents they face on a daily basis. According to a 2014 census published by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the tally of fatal on-the-job injuries was up by 9% over 2013.

Plant explosions, fires, and hazardous chemical exposure are only a few types of industrial accidents that injure or kill many people nationwide every year. An extreme example is the Deepwater Horizon or BP oil spill of 2010, in which the oil platform exploded and sank, killing 11 people and spilling hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico.

At The Law Offices of Edward C. Casey Jr., we offer legal assistance to industrial accident victims in the Bay Area, including victims of:

“Industrial accidents are caused by industrial companies, through accident, negligence, or incompetence, and often result in extensive property damage, serious injury, and loss of life.”

Plant explosions

Corroded and malfunctioning equipment and outdated technology can result in explosions and severe or fatal injuries.

Hazardous chemical exposure

According to OSHA, toxic substance and chemical hazards include not only a wide range of possible health consequences but physical hazards, such as flammability, reactivity, and corrosion.

Defective equipment

Large equipment and machinery are expensive for employers to upgrade and replace. However, unsafe, defective equipment and machinery in the workplace can lead to crush injuries, amputations, other serious injuries, and fatalities.

Falling objects

When work is conducted above, workers below can be injured by falling objects if proper safety measures are not in place.

Flying debris

Workers can suffer serious eye, ear, and head injuries from flying debris, such as wood shavings, glass pieces, and dust if appropriate personal protective gear is not provided by employers to prevent those injuries.
