Chicago Factory Accident Attorneys
OSHA Violations and Chemical Spills
People who work at factories understand the inherent danger in their jobs. With so many large machines and moving parts, it is almost impossible to avoid the dangers that constantly surround you. However, one of the things that puts many minds at ease is the reassurance that proper workplace standards such as those contained in the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) will keep the factory safe. OSHA’s standards are intended to prevent many of the most serious factory accidents, including those caused by defective machinery, chemical releases, chemical explosions and spills.

Injured At Work in Chicago, IL
Any time there are moving parts on a large machine people are at danger of getting injured. The machines that enable factories to run efficiently also injure many of the workers who operate them. Factory workers often get fingers, toes, hands and arms trapped in moving parts of the machines. When we work with clients injured in factory accidents we make sure they receive the workers compensation benefits they’re entitled to, as well as, demanding compensation from third parties, such as machine manufactures or designers who may have played a part in causing the injuries. We help workers recover damages from injuries caused by:
- Improper safety equipment
- Inadequate safeguards on machines
- Negligence in training and instruction
- Chemical releases
- Toxic spills
- Improper warnings or labeling
