Common Injuries in Industrial Accidents

Regardless of the injury you or your loved one suffered; we can help. 

That includes the cases of these sadly commonplace industrial injuries: 

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) occur when a sudden jolt or blow to the head leads to brain dysfunction. In industrial accidents, TBIs can occur due to falls, being struck by objects, or exposure to hazardous substances. The severity of TBIs can range from mild concussions to severe brain damage.
  • Severe Burn Injuries can occur due to fires, explosions, or contact with hot substances. Severe burns often require extensive medical treatment, including surgeries, skin grafts, and long-term rehabilitation. 
  • Spinal Cord Injuries (SCIs) can result from falls, being struck by heavy objects, or machinery accidents. SCIs often lead to partial or complete paralysis and require significant medical intervention, including surgery and ongoing rehabilitation. 
  • Amputations are a devastating consequence of industrial accidents, often resulting from equipment malfunctions or contact with heavy machinery. 
  • Traumatic Eye Injuries can occur due to flying debris, chemical exposure, or accidents involving tools or machinery. These injuries can lead to partial or complete vision loss and require specialized medical treatment.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits

  • Up-front medical expenses
  • Ongoing physical therapy 
  • Lost wages
  • Funeral expenses in the case of death

But seeking all possible avenues of compensation also means exploring whether there are grounds to file a personal injury claim. 

This could result in the following additional benefits: 

Possible Personal Injury Compensation

  • Therapy coverage may be expanded to include psychiatric care.
  • Lost wages may be interpreted more broadly to cover lost future opportunities. 
  • Wrongful death expenses can include compensation for the loss of companionship and counsel.
  • Personal injury expenses may include benefits for pain and suffering.

A personal injury settlement can be more all-encompassing and, therefore, more accurately represent what the injured plaintiff has truly lost. 

However, not every case can go the personal injury route. While workers’ compensation covers all injuries, regardless of cause, a personal injury case can only be filed when there is a defendant (in this case, the employer) whose negligence is the reason for the injury or death. Our experienced legal team can advise on whether this route is possible in your case.
