Industrial Site Injuries Lawyer in Atlanta & Marietta, GA
Some people believe that they are limited to the workers’ compensation system when they are injured on the job. But There May Be More. There May Be Another Way.
That is sometimes true, and it’s often tragic. Many people do not understand that the workers’ compensation system was designed for one reason: to protect employers and corporations. Workers’ compensation settlements typically provide pennies on the dollar for your injuries, and there is nothing you can do about it.
But, if you were injured on a job site you should consider some specific issues that may allow you to hold the wrongdoers accountable in a traditional lawsuit:
- Was another company or its employees at fault for your injuries, even if only partially?
- Was another contractor at fault?
- Did a piece of equipment break or fail?
- Was a piece of equipment lacking a critical safety device (guard, cutoff, safety off/on)?
- Was a product at fault in any way?
- Was your injury caused by improper maintenance or repair?
- Are you a contractor who was working at another company’s facility?
In other words, if anyone other than your direct employer caused the incident or your injuries, you should consult a lawyer who specializes in industrial injuries.

What Are the Most Common Causes of Industrial Site Injuries in Georgia?
Industrial injuries can impact workers, contractors, and the public, expanding to large geographic areas. And like other negligent causes of personal injuries throughout Georgia, many industrial incidents, injuries, and fatalities may have been prevented.
Some of the most common causes of industrial site injuries may include, but are not limited to:
Corporations must do all that they can to ensure that worksites are as safe as possible.
Unfortunately, industrial workplaces such as mills, plants, factories, and warehouses have a higher-than-average rate of injury for their workers. This is often because they fail to take basic and necessary steps to protect workers. This is unfortunately all too true with contractors, whose corporations sometimes treat their employees much worse.
This is why corporate defendants do everything they can — and spend whatever it takes — to blame your employer for your injuries in a traditional lawsuit: because every percentage of fault put on your employer is money that they will never have to pay, and that you will never collect. Defending against these often-frivolous attacks is a critical element of any industrial or other worksite case.
If you or your loved one was injured on a job site, the corporation and their insurance company do not have your interests at heart. But you can be sure that we do. We will leave no stone unturned to make sure that you receive compensation for the pain caused to you and your family.
