Catastrophic injuries are caused by industrial accidents such as the following: Chemical leaks, fires, explosions, forklift accidents, construction site accidents, motor vehicle accidents, equipment accidents, and building collapses. Explosions can be triggered when there is poor containment and management of hazardous materials. Fires can result from electrical malfunctions, combustion of flammable substances and chemical particles, as well as gas and oil explosions. Collapse accidents can involve disintegration of construction canopies and trenches that have been dug for excavation, collapse of unstable roofing structures inside buildings under construction, or during demolition.

Health & Safety
Employers have a responsibility to their employees to ensure that the workplace is as safe an environment as possible. This means not just seeking to prevent accidents, but to create a situation that is best suited towards promoting the safety and well-being of all workers.
Due to the nature of industrial facilities, accidents are no rarity. This, however, does not mean that they should be blindly accepted. If you have recently been injured in an accident and have been left with catastrophic injuries, you deserve to be fully compensated. Regardless of whether the injury stemmed from an exposure to toxic chemicals, or even a construction accident – you can be confident knowing that our firm will be there to protect you.
The construction, building materials and plastics industries involve the use of chemicals or the release of byproducts that can adversely impact workers’ health. Exposure to chemicals in the workplace can be either through skin penetration or inhalation of gases and vapors. Workers at petrochemical plants may be exposed to benzene: A colorless, odorless liquid, which has been linked to blood disorders, including various forms of leukemia and anemia. They might also endure exposure to asbestos, which was widely used in the construction industry a few decades ago, leaving thousands of workers battling mesothelioma (a hardening of the lining of the lungs) and other serious – and sometimes fatal – lung diseases.
Employee Safety Resources
While the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) creates and puts safety regulations in place, the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) partners with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to prevent sickness in job environments.
