Helping Injured Industrial Workers Pursue Compensation
Many different businesses and individuals, from machine manufacturers to electricians, have a role to play in ensuring that industrial workplaces are safe. Those who do not take their responsibilities seriously deserve to be held accountable for needlessly endangering workers.
At Leonard B. Gabbay, P.C. we help injured industrial workers pursue personal injury claims against those responsible for their injuries. Austin industrial accident attorney Leonard B. Gabbay represents clients who have suffered all types of injuries, including the following:
- Machinery injuries: Industrial heavy machines can be extremely dangerous — resulting in crushing incidents, fires and other serious accidents — when they are manufactured negligently or when the proper safety procedures for operating them are not followed.
- Chemical exposure: Many factories and other industrial facilities make use of dangerous chemicals that must be packaged, transported and handled carefully. When they are not, these chemicals can cause severe burns, toxic exposures and other serious injuries.
- Electrical injuries: There are well-established standards for safety when it comes to the wiring of any high-voltage electrical device. Unfortunately, these standards are often not followed in industrial settings, resulting in serious and potentially fatal electrical accidents.
- Explosion accidents: The equipment, chemicals and compounds used in industrial settings can be extremely volatile. This can lead to explosions that result in burns and other serious injuries to industrial employees.
