industrial accidents lawyerIndustrial accidents require immediate action. Our experienced industrial accident lawyers will promptly start investigating and gathering evidence to support your legal case to be sure you get properly compensated for your injuries, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

A foundry can be a dangerous place, especially for people who don’t normally work in them. It’s all too common for an outside contractor, such as an electrician or painter, to be hired for job in a factory or foundry and end up injured on the job.

A simple trip and fall in a dangerous area full of large machinery can end in fractures, burns, and even death. The personal injury attorneys at Murphy & Prachthauser can help determine negligence and fault, and fight for your fair compensation.

To get a more in-depth idea of how a case like this can play out, read this case study of an electrician who was injured on the job.

Determining Fault In An Industrial Accident or Foundry

Depending on the nature of your injury, other persons or companies responsible for causing your injury may be investigated for fault and/or negligence. If you are injured on the job, your only claim against your employer is for workers compensation. If you are injured due to the fault of a company other than your employer, then you can often make a claim against that company. For example, you may have the right to pursue a lawsuit for compensation if:

  • Machinery unexpectedly malfunctions and injures you, you may sue the manufacturer of the machine for negligence or failure to provide for your safety.
  • If you are employed at a factory or foundry, and are injured by the actions of some outside contractor, to repair the machinery, paint the walls, or check the fire extinguishers, you may have a claim against that contractor.
  • If you work for an outside company and are injured in a factory or foundry due to neglect of the factory or foundry, then you may be able to make a claim against the factory or foundry.

Hiring an industrial accident lawyer who is familiar with the laws governing foundry accidents is important.
