Causes of Industrial Accidents 

It’s necessary to understand and determine the cause of your industrial accident so you may narrow down who is responsible for your injuries and who to hold accountable. In order to recover the compensation you deserve, you will need to gather evidence on how the accident occurred. There are many causes of industrial accidents, including:

  • Lack of training
  • Lack of supervision
  • Struck by an object
  • Poor lighting
  • Ambient temperature
  • Broken or damaged machine
  • Fire or explosion
  • Exposure to hazardous materials

While you may have trouble gathering evidence during your recovery, an industrial injury lawyer in San Antonio will act on your behalf and collect the necessary information for your claim. 

What Are Common Injuries Sustained in Industrial Accidents?

Industrial accidents can leave severe, life-threatening injuries due to the proximity to dangerous equipment and other factors. Many industrial accidents occur on construction sites, where the environment, materials, and tools expose workers to hazardous conditions. If individuals are not properly trained and equipment is mishandled or unmaintained, they may cause injuries, including: 

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Head and back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Crushed limbs
  • Multiple broken bones
  • Damage to the lungs
  • Sludge-related injuries
  • Electrical burns
  • Amputation of limbs or digits
  • Gas and chemical burns

After an industrial accident, you often not only face physical injury but also the financial burden that follows. If you are the primary provider for yourself or your family and your injuries require extensive medical treatment, physical therapy, and more time away from work, you need to contact an experienced industrial injury attorney in San Antonio, TX.

Recovering Compensation After an Industrial Accident

The aftermath of an industrial accident can be harrowing for you and your family to navigate. When a family’s primary provider is unable to work, the loss of income and financial instability can make it difficult to recover from an injury. There are many losses people encounter after an industrial accident, which may include:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Cost of physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Physical disfigurement and impairment
  • Emergency medical treatment
  • Change in lifestyle
  • Emotional distress
  • Lost wages or income
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Reconstructive surgery
  • Punitive damages

A deeper level of mistreatment and neglect is often involved in many industrial accidents. When you take legal action against a party responsible for an industrial accident, you can help yourself and prevent similar problems from occurring in the future.

What to Look For In a San Antonio Industrial Injury Lawyer 

Every person and claim requires a unique set of knowledge and strategy. Not every lawyer will understand and provide you with the representation you need. Before choosing a San Antonio industrial injury attorney, consider the following factors:

  • Experience: If your lawyer does not have experience in the type of law your claim falls under, your rights and compensation are at serious risk.
  • Past Results and References: Any knowledgeable and trustworthy lawyer can provide references and past results to potential clients. 
  • Responsiveness: No one wants a lawyer you can’t get into contact with, so paying attention to their level of responsiveness is vital for your claim.
  • Payment Structure: Before you make your decision, you will want to discuss the type of payment structure they follow and determine whether it works for you. 

Industrial injury cases can be complicated and overwhelming. An industrial accident lawyer with experience and connections in the legal community will have access to resources and trustworthy legal counsel.
