Passionately Pursuing Justice for the Injured

Common Causes of Industrial Accidents

Houston Industrial Accident Lawyers with Decades of Combined Experience

When an industrial accident occurs, it is vital to conduct a thorough investigation of the situation in order to accurately determine the cause and contributing factors. The employer will normally carry out an investigation, but you cannot count on this investigation to produce findings that are in your favor.

After all, the employer's goal is to minimize its own liability to avoid being held responsible for the resulting injuries and any subsequent compensation. Governmental regulatory agencies such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) may investigate accidents that are particularly large, but even an investigation of this type may not succeed in uncovering the exact cause of the accident.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in an industrial accident, bring the case to us at The Daspit Law Firm. We have extensive experience in handling industrial accident cases, such as the 7,000 - 8,000 hours that our founding attorney, John Daspit, spent investigating and developing the BP refinery explosion case several years ago.

Let our Houston industry accident injury attorney take on the task of investigating your case in order to determine liability so that you can claim financial compensation for the losses you have suffered.

Why Do Industrial Accidents Happen?

Industrial accidents occur under a wide variety of circumstances and in many different ways, but most of them have one thing in common: They could, and therefore should, have been prevented.

This is true whether the injured worker was caught in machinery, fell from a platform, became stuck between objects, was hurt in a motor vehicle collision, or suffered a sprain, strain or repetitive use injury. In some cases, the cause of the accident can be traced to some type of careless or reckless behavior on the part of the injured worker. Very often, however, it is found that the employer, a supervisor or co-worker is to blame.

Upon careful investigation, it is frequently discovered that an industrial accident was caused by some type of violation of safety regulations or by a failure to implement such regulations in the first place.

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the 10 most frequently cited safety regulation violations in 2012 involved standards concerning:

  • Fall protection
  • Hazard communication standards
  • Scaffolding requirements
  • Respiratory protection
  • Control of hazardous energy
  • Powered industrial trucks
  • Electrical wiring methods, components and equipment
  • Ladders
  • Machinery
  • Electrical systems design
