What Types of Industrial Accidents do you Handle?
We will handle any type of industrial accident you have suffered. However, to give you an idea of some of the cases we might take on, some of the most-frequently-suffered industrial accidents are as follows:
- Improper lifting: over one million Americans per year sustain an acute or chronic back problem because of their work.
- Chemical exposure: thankfully, most workplaces don’t feature hazardous chemicals. But if you have been exposed, these substances can severely damage your health.
- Explosions: industrial workplaces such as mines can leave workers vulnerable to explosions, the odds of which increase when employers cut corners or do not follow standard safety procedures.
- Falling objects: when objects haven’t been placed securely or properly, they can fall, causing severe injury.
These are only a few of the types of industrial accidents workers in central New York might suffer. Each day there are also truck injuries, toxic exposures, electrocution injuries, ladder accidents, crane accidents, spine injuries, and wrongful deaths that occur because of dangerous workplaces.
What Damages am I Entitled to?
