Liability For Perris Industrial Accidents

Far too many workers are killed or seriously injured every year. According to Aftermath, “Unfortunately, even with stricter laws in place and a greater emphasis on workplace safety, industrial accident statistics are staggering. In 2013, for instance, more than 4,000 U.S. workers were killed on the job. That is more than 12 job-related deaths a day!” There are a number of steps that companies can take in order to prevent accidents.

  • Workers should be well trained to identify hazards.
  • Workers should be given fall arrest systems when they work at heights above six feet.
  • Workers should communicate constantly with one another.

When a worker is killed or injured on the job, they or their family can seek aid through a worker’s compensation claim. Worker’s compensation in California is based on a no-fault insurance scheme. There is no need for an injured worker to demonstrate negligence. Depending on the facts of any case, the family of a deceased worker can seek aid through a third party liability claim. There are a number of steps that should be taken after an industrial accident.

  • Eye witnesses should be interviewed.
  • Medical records should be preserved.
  • Surveillance footage should be sought.
  • A thorough investigation should be conducted.

Companies are supposed to take precautions to keep workers safe. They must abide by OSHA guidelines, but this does not always happen. When a worker is killed, their family can seek aid through a civil claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. It is extremely important that all evidence is properly preserved after any incident.
