An industrial accident can be devastating – frequently resulting in serious injuries and even death. If you or someone you love has been in an industrial accident at a factory, warehouse or similar location, Lopez Franco can help you get the compensation you need to put your life back together.  

Common Causes of Industrial Accidents

Industrial accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, and depending on the severity of the accident, they can result in considerable confusion with understanding the compensation you’re entitled to receive. 

As a result, one of the biggest challenges when dealing with industrial accident claims is identifying the cause of the accident. Every case is different, but some of the most common causes of industrial accidents include the following: 

  • Negligent maintenance of machinery or equipment
  • Defective machinery or equipment
  • Inadequate training or safety protocols
  • Missing or broken safety equipment
  • Negligent maintenance of the facilities, such as failure to repair faulty wiring or ventilation systems

Identifying the cause of the accident is essential to a successful claim because it will help you determine who may be at fault. At Lopez Franco, the first thing we do is conduct a thorough investigation of the accident in order to get to the bottom of what happened. We know what evidence you will need to build your case. 

A Personal Injury Law Firm Handling All Types of Industrial Accident Cases

Industrial accidents can range from incidents involving only one person to catastrophic accidents that cause injury and even death to several people. At Lopez Franco, we are positioned to handle all types of industrial accident cases, including the following: 

  • Explosions and fires
  • Toxic material exposure
  • Electrocutions
  • Machinery and equipment failures
  • Falling equipment, tools, or materials

If you have been involved in an accident that injured several people, you are entitled to seek your own legal counsel. Potential conflicts can arise when one attorney represents several victims. It is often better to have an attorney that you believe is completely committed to achieving the best possible outcome for you and no one else. 

What Your Case May Be Worth

You may be entitled to substantial compensation if you have been injured in an industrial accident. Your compensation could include the following: 

  • Your current and future medical expenses
  • Your lost wages, including any future income, if you suffered a permanent disability
  • Your pain and suffering

Generally speaking, the more severely you are injured, the larger your claim will be. That said, do not expect your case to be open and shut even if you suffer a life-changing injury. You will have to prove your claim with compelling evidence that documents all of your economic and non-economic losses. 

Unfortunately, many injured workers and bystanders settle their claims for far less than they are worth. Before you make any decisions about your case, you should at least speak with an industrial accident attorney to understand your options. They can estimate what your case may be worth and your likelihood of success.
