Industrial accidents cause almost one death every week in Ohio (Source: Dayton Daily News). Our country was built on industry and there is no denying we still depend on refineries, chemical plants, and other industrial sites as integral parts of our economy. These places can sometimes be hazardous to work in, with industrial injuries resulting from a range of factors including:
- Exposure to hazardous chemicals;
- Slip and falls; and
- A variety of other workplace safety and OSHA violations.
Wikipedia lists a variety of industrial accidents and disasters that have occurred in various industries. OSHA statistics also show that 20.5% of worker fatalities in private industry in calendar year 2014 were in construction, in the “fatal four” categories of (1) falls; (2) electrocutions; (3) struck by object; and (4) caught in/between.
Often times injured industrial workers mistakenly assume their only means of recouping lost wages and medical bill expenses is through workers’ compensation. However, injured industrial workers also have the option of filing a personal injury claim.
Chester Law Group Has Experience Helping Victims of Industrial Accidents
If you or a loved one has been injured in an industrial accident, life can change dramatically. There may be many new challenges to deal with and questions to ponder. How will you pay for medical bills? What happens if you cannot return to work and earn an income? Who is accountable for your pain and suffering?
These type of questions can haunt families, preventing them from properly focusing on recovery. Fortunately, the help of a legal professional is available. When you choose the attorneys at the Chester Law Group Co. LPA, our team can help you to obtain fair compensation to address your medical bills, lost wages, and any pain and suffering that you have endured.
Choosing the Right Attorneys for Representation
When you have had a serious accident, there are dozens of law firms to choose from and it may seem overwhelming. In your search for legal representation, it is important to remember that not all lawyers are the same, and a firm’s case results count. There is, of course, no way to guarantee any specific outcome, but choosing a law firm with a proven track record gives you a better chance at success.
At Chester Law Group Co. LPA, our team of attorneys have been fighting for the rights of industrial accident victims throughout Ohio for decades. We focus exclusively on personal injury and accident cases and have over 190 years of combined legal experience in this area. During those years, our law firm has represented thousands of clients and succeeded in securing them favorable settlements and verdicts, including million and multi-million dollar cases.
Another element you should consider when choosing a law firm is the experience you will have working with the attorneys. A personal injury claim has a great impact on your life and you want the lawyers representing you to be as invested as you are.
