Birmingham Industrial Accident Attorneys

If you or a loved one has been injured in an industrial accident, you, like most, turn to workers’ compensation for immediate relief. While the workers’ compensation laws provide for some recovery, injured workers cannot be compensated for pain and suffering, and compensation is generally capped by unfair and outdated laws.

Some Injured Workers are Eligible for Additional Compensation.

  • For example, if a worker was injured because a coworker removed a safety device from a machine, the injured worker may have a claim for additional compensation.
  • If a machine that was defectively manufactured caused the injury, a worker may claim pain and suffering damages from the manufacturer.
  • Sometimes, an injured worker may have been driving or riding in a vehicle that will allow suit against the driver of the vehicle that caused the wreck.
  • The injury was sustained while the worker was performing their job duties at a facility other than that of his or her employer.

If any of these scenarios apply to your case, you may want to consider speaking with a personal injury lawyer who knows how to handle industrial and workplace injury cases. The amount of compensation you can recover can be greatly affected by the facts of your case.

For example, we helped a man who was badly injured when his employer decided to remove a safety device to increase the speed of production. Under workers’ compensation, he would have received less than $500,000. But because we were able to prove that the removal of the safety device directly caused the accident and his injuries, we were able to recover more than $7 million for the worker and his family.
