Common Types of Industrial Accidents
There are a variety of accidents that can occur on industrial job sites, but the most common of these incidents involve the following:
Falling equipment or debris
Slip and fall injuries
Exposure to toxic substances
If you have been hurt due to any of these issues, you may be eligible for compensation to cover your ensuing damages.
How We Can Help
At Scott Link Law, we can help those who have been injured in industrial accidents pursue compensation for a variety of damages.
Regardless of what caused the Industrial Accident, the “Medical Bills” for treating resulting Injuries may also reach HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of DOLLARS. This may include long and repeated hospitalizations to stabilize the Client, multiple surgeries, prolonged physical and occupational therapy, rehabilitation and expensive medicines. The client may be faced with huge Medical Bills, but without any way to pay them.
Depending on what type of work the Client performed before suffering in an Industrial Accident, the loss of past and future wages may add up to HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS, or even MILLIONS of DOLLARS. This is known as ”Past and Future Lost Wages.” The more the Client earned, the more the Past and Future Lost Wages may add up to be. Even if the Client did not earn high wages before the Industrial Accident, the Lost Future Wages may be substantial when the Client is very young.
Industrial Accidents will often result in Physical Disfigurement, which is sometimes very SEVERE. The Disfigurement may be horrible scars from burns, surgery, or tissue loss (the loss of skin, muscle, or bone). It may also be distorted facial features from facial trauma or badly misaligned arms or legs from crushed bones. The law allows for the recovery of Money Damages for Physical Disfigurement, which may be substantial when an Industrial Accident has occurred.
PAIN & SUFFERING:
Industrial Accidents may produce incredible Pain & Suffering to the Client. This may be from injuries themselves, or the surgery(s) necessary to treat the injuries, as well as the Physical Therapy the Client must undergo following the Medical Treatment. The law allows the Client to recover Money Damages for PAIN & SUFFERING, which may be very significant when a Client has suffered in an Industrial Accident.
You may also be entitled to recover monetary damages for Mental Anguish associated with your injuries and traumatic experience.
Mental Anguish is much more than common worries about everyday life–it is the overwhelming concern about how to pay for huge medical bills, whether there will be a full recovery from devastating injuries, or whether you will ever be able to return to work.
When connected with a physical injury, mental anguish includes both the resultant mental sensation of pain and also the accompanying feelings of extreme distress, fright, and anxiety. As an element of damages implies a relatively high degree of mental pain and distress; it is more than mere disappointment, anger, worry, resentment, or embarrassment, although it may include all of these, and it includes mental sensations of pain resulting from such painful emotions as grief, severe disappointment, indignation, wounded pride, shame, despair, and/or public humiliation.
Unfortunately, it can be frustrating to collect the full amount of compensation you deserve without a lawyer, making it imperative to find a legal representative who is tough enough to fight for you.
