Common Types of Industrial Accidents
The types of “industrial accident” you might face can vary depending on your occupation and specific role, but in general, these accidents take place in some of the most essential and heavy-duty fields, such as utilities, oil and gas rig work, construction, transportation, logging and forestry, and railroad work. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the BLS, logging, fishing, and roofing are some of the most dangerous jobs in America.
The most common causes for injuries in industrial workplaces include:
- Falls from high scaffolding or ladders
- Heavy lifting strain or overexertion
- Chemical burns
- Toxic chemical exposure
- Falling objects
- Crushing incidents with machinery or buildings
- Tractor and forklift accidents
- Mechanical defects and malfunctions
The damage inflicted by industrial accidents can be incredibly serious, leading to some of the most catastrophic and life-altering injuries a person can experience. In general, these injuries should be covered under Montana workers’ compensation laws.
In specific cases, you may be eligible to sue a third party for negligence or even sue your employer under very limited circumstances where there is no workers compensation exclusivity. At Hoyt & Blewett PLLC, our industrial accident attorneys can help you review all your legal options and take the appropriate route to recovery. You will likely need significant financial resources to account for your medical expenses, time off work, rehabilitation, and long-term care needs – and our Montana industrial accident lawyers are committed to helping you get those resources and protect your rights.
