Industrial Accidents

Factory, construction, manufacturing or any other kind of industrial work involving heavy machinery poses serious risks to workers. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires all employers to provide a safe working environment for its employees. This includes following all state and federal safety regulations and providing training for employees so that they can perform their jobs safely.

Industrial accidents and injuries in the United States account for more than 1,000 deaths each year that occur because of serious safety violations on industrial and construction sites. If you have been injured in an industrial accident as a result of your employer's negligence or as a result of not receiving proper training on the job, you would be well-advised to contact an experienced Tennessee industrial accident attorney to find out more information about your legal rights.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, there were 5,657 fatalities that occurred in the United States in 2007 as a result of industrial accidents. The types of fatal accidents are categorized by the federal agency as follows:

The unfortunate fact is that most of these industrial accidents could have been prevented or entirely avoided by taking the necessary safety precautions. A number of industrial accidents also occur because of faulty operation of machinery. An employer should make sure that the worker is fully trained to operate a certain type of machinery or perform a certain job. Not doing so is a violation of federal safety standards.

If the worker's injuries are caused by a mechanical malfunction as a result of improper or inadequate maintenance, the employer or the entity that maintains the machinery could be held liable under Tennessee's product liability law. In industrial accidents where another party's negligence caused the injuries, a claim may be filed by victims or their families against that third party. When a personal injury claim is filed against an entity other than an employer such as a contractor, sub contractor or a product manufacturer, it is known as a "third party claim."
