Accidents Caused by Poorly-Maintained Machinery

Advocating on Behalf of Industrial Workers in Austin, Texas

Many industries, especially oil refining, rely on around-the-clock use of heavy machinery. In order for machines to work properly, as well as to ensure the safety of their operators, they must be routinely inspected and repaired. Furnaces, pipes, pressure vessels, and boiler tubes are just some of the many types of machinery that need to be inspected frequently to reduce the risk of explosion or other types of accidents.

Without regular maintenance, these machines can pose a serious threat to the safety of workers, and employers can be held responsible if their negligence in maintaining them led to an accident.

The Daspit Law Firm is committed to protecting the rights of workers injured in accidents involving machinery that has not been well kept. Our team of Austin catastrophic injury lawyers stands at the ready to review your case and inform you of your legal options. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, and we are prepared to fight on your behalf to protect that right.

OSHA Protects Your Rights to a Safe Workplace

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to abide by a strict set of regulations designed to ensure that workers are provided with a workplace that is free of hazards. Part of these guidelines specifically state that machinery must be regularly maintained in order to preserve the structural integrity of the machine as well as to reduce the risk of work-related injury or fatality. Failure to abide by these policies can be termed negligence, and employers may be held responsible for paying compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Rehabilitation
  • Medication costs

If the employee dies as a result of this negligence, the employer may also find themselves responsible for a wrongful death, and may also be financially responsible for other damages like funeral and burial costs, loss of financial support, loss of companionship, any pain and suffering experienced by the deceased prior to their death, and more.
