Have you or a loved one been injured in an industrial accident?
An “industrial accident” refers to an incident where an employee is injured while working at a large industrial facility like DuPont, TXI, Hubble Power Systems, Kraft Foods, Watlow-Columbia Inc., Dana Corp., ABC Laboratories, 3m, Frito-Lay, Pilgrim’s Pride, Sanderson Farms, and many others.
There are many ways employees can get hurt at an industrial facility including electrocution, explosions, burns, crush, falls, and inhalation of poisonous fumes. Sadly, San Antonio has been the home to several examples of all of these types of industrial accidents. This is due to the fact that there is such a large presence of large scale manufacturing and chemical production in the San Antonio area. Whenever you have such a high concentration of thee types of dangerous elements, an industrial accident is likely to happen.
The main thing to consider in an industrial accident, is that unlike an injury sustained while working for a small company, companies that operate plants and factories of this magnitude have their own legal counsel on staff. When a worker is injured or killed in an industrial accident, these attorneys are put in charge of damage control. They can make it very challenging for an accident victim or their family to get fair compensation.
This is precisely where we can help. Our experienced San Antonio industrial accident attorneys understand the law, and will not let these corporate giants walk over you.
As with any other type of work-related injuries in San Antonio, industrial accidents are subject to the rules of the Texas Workers' Compensation Act.
One of the benefits to hiring our Law Office's San Antonio industrial accident lawyers following an industrial accident is that we can quickly determine if the employer has workers compensation coverage or not. Once this determination is made, the case can go in diametrically different directions. It is critical in these types of cases to obtain all of the evidence immediately, before the industrial employer has an opportunity to “clean up” the site. Witness statements, pictures, measurements, and video should be obtained immediately following the accident. In most cases, we will partner with an industrial accident who will help us inspect the site where the accident took place before the site is tampered with.Practice Areas: Car Accidents - Trucking Accidents
