Common Industrial Accidents
Working at a factory or construction site can be incredibly dangerous. You are surrounded by heavy machinery, corrosive chemicals, exposed electrical wires, and any number of other hazards. Your safety is dependent upon everyone being properly trained, aware, and safe at all times. If anyone fails to follow all appropriate safety rules and regulations, or if something simply unfortunate occurs, industrial workers can face serious injury or worse.

- Chemical spill

Workplace Injuries and Third Party Claims
If you were injured in an industrial accident while on the job, you are entitled to recovery under your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance policy. Workers’ comp is, however, limited to certain types of damages. Workers can recover for their medical expenses, disability, certain retraining and reeducation, and a portion of their lost wages. They cannot collect other personal injury damages such as pain and suffering. Outside of limited exceptions, workers cannot typically sue their employers for workplace injuries, even if the employer’s negligence led to the accident.
If, however, your industrial accident was caused by the negligence of a third party–meaning someone who does not work for your company–you could have a standard personal injury claim separate from your workers’ comp coverage. If your industrial accident was caused by a negligent subcontractor, for example, then you might have a claim against that worker or sub-contractor. If your accident was caused by or made worse due to defective safety equipment, or the accident was caused by a defective piece of machinery, you could have a claim against the manufacturer. If a civilian driver was involved in your industrial accident, you might have a claim against that negligent driver.
A dedicated workplace injury lawyer can help you recover the maximum possible compensation, including by claiming against third parties involved in your accident. If you were in an industrial accident and you believe someone other than a co-worker was to blame, talk to an experienced California industrial accident attorney today to discuss your case.
