What is an Industrial Accident?
The simple definition of an industrial accident is a disaster unintentionally caused by an industrial company, manufacturer or industrial equipment. Those accidental mishaps can injure civilians and employees, destroy the environment, and severely damage property.

- Forklift accidents

Industrial Injury Compensation and Liability
Industrial accidents can occur due to a variety of circumstances and incidents. Ultimately, industrial sites and employees are required to abide by numerous rules and regulations put into place by OSHA to ensure safety on the job for workers. A failure to abide by any of these rules can easily result in a negligent accident that warrants compensation.
Those that can be held liable in an industrial accident case can include any party whose negligence to comply with safety procedures caused the accident. This can include another employee, a supervisor, the company, or a manufacturer of a defective product or equipment.
Determining fault in industrial accident cases can become complicated very quickly. Workers are often up against large corporations and powerful insurance companies that can go to great lengths to limit the compensation that is due to them, and determining liability can be tricky.
Ultimately, the accident victim must prove that negligence of another caused the accident, or that the cause was faulty equipment that resulted from manufacturer error. Acts of negligence on behalf of a company can include improper training for employees, allowing the use of defective products, or failing to provide adequate safety equipment.
Industrial accident victims may receive compensation for their injuries and any other damages they may have suffered or will suffer in the future. Those damages can include:
- Both current and future medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages and time at work
- Emotional trauma
