Types of Texas Industrial Accidents

Texas has a wide variety of industries that employ millions of people. Unfortunately, many of these industries use equipment and supplies that can cause severe injuries and death. The nature of the work in some industries place workers at a higher risk for injuries and life-threatening conditions.

Some of the common examples of industrial accidents that can lead to injuries or death include, but are not limited to:

  • Accidents involving defective products, such as presses, loaders, power tools, forklifts, drills, and other machinery;
  • Scaffolding accidents and other falls;
  • Drilling rig accidents;
  • Gas and chemical exposure;
  • Accidents caused by falling objects;
  • Repetitive stress injuries;
  • Electrocution and other electrical injuries;

Why Do Industrial Accidents Happen in Texas?

In many cases, industrial accidents occur because of another party’s negligence or wrongdoing. Holding a company liable for lack of oversight or negligence that leads to an accident can result in compensation for workers who are severely injured in industrial accidents.

Some of the common factors that contribute to the cause of an industrial accident include, but are not limited to:

  • Lack of proper training and implementation of safety procedures;
  • Improper ventilation and lack of respirators and other safety equipment;
  • Lack of machine maintenance and repair;
  • Insufficient machine guarding;
  • Improper storage of hazardous and dangerous chemicals and materials;
  • Horseplay and distractions;
  • Lack of inspections and maintenance of the premises to avoid dangerous and hazardous conditions;
  • Inadequate fire prevention plans, failure to practice escape plans, and lack of fire protection equipment;
  • Improper operation of heavy equipment, machines, and vehicles;
  • Negligent supervision and lack of communication;
  • Improper warning signs, including biological hazard signs, fire safety signs, danger signs, safety symbol signs, and caution signs;
  • Defective machines, products, and materials; and,
  • Failure to follow OSHA guidelines and regulations for workplace and employee safety.

When a company, contractor, subcontractor, or other party puts an employee in danger or risk because of negligence, cutting corners, carelessness, or other wrongdoing, the employee may have a claim against that party for damages.

What Compensation Can I Receive for an Industrial Accident in Houston?

If you are injured in an industrial accident, you may be covered by workers’ compensation insurance. However, workers’ compensation does not pay for all damages sustained in an industrial accident. Workers do not receive full compensation for all lost income. They also are not entitled to receive compensation for pain and suffering. The compensation for permanent injuries and future loss of income is severely restricted.

You may have a third party claim in addition to your workers’ compensation claim. There are federal and state laws the govern numerous industries that operate in Texas, including oil rigs, construction sites, mines, factories, refineries, and chemical production facilities. Those laws often provide additional causes of action for workers or other individuals injured in an industrial accident.

Our Houston industrial accident lawyers understand these laws. We understand how to use these laws to seek full compensation of all damages, including but not limited to:

  • Past and future medical care and personal care;
  • Past and future loss of income and benefits;
  • Loss of earning potential;
  • Permanent impairments and disabilities;
  • Scarring and disfigurement;
  • Physical pain and suffering;
  • Loss of quality of life;
  • Emotional distress and mental anguish; and,
  • Other out-of-pocket financial losses.

The value of an industrial accident claim depends on numerous factors. Hiring an experienced Houston industrial accident attorney is the first step in recovering the compensation you deserve after being injured in an industrial accident.
