Workers’ Compensation Benefits Available for Industrial Workers
Compared to other jobs, industrial work poses a significantly higher risk of severe injury or death. Due to the inherent dangers, industrial workers must face on a daily basis, industrial companies are required to enforce strict safety policies to protect employees from harm. Unfortunately, many employers disregard these protections to meet demand and/or make a profit, while risking the lives of their workers.
Common causes of industrial accidents include:
- Falls from heights
- Being struck by an object
- Explosions and fires
- Toxic chemical exposure
- Defective equipment or machinery
- Machine entanglement
- Collapsing scaffolding or structures
Although industrial workers who are injured in workplace accidents are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, securing compensation can be challenging without experienced legal representation. In some instances, their employer or their employer’s insurance company may attempt to deny their injury claim, which means injured workers may have to pay their own medical bills or get fired for missing workdays to recover.
