Types of Industrial Accidents in Texas
An industrial accident can happen at a worksite that involves heavy machinery, work vehicles, power tools, hazardous substances, ladders and scaffolds, and electrical equipment. These include the construction industry, oil and gas refineries, and manufacturing plants. Common examples of industrial accidents that can injure workers in Texas include:
Falls from ladders, scaffolds and catwalks
Chemical spills and burns
Crushed by machines or equipment
Exposure to toxic fumes or substances
Mass casualty industrial accidents
It takes an attorney who specializes in industrial accidents to properly navigate these cases in Texas.

We have the experience with these types of cases to achieve optimal results.
Why Do Industrial Accidents Happen?
Industrial jobs and workplaces come with inherent hazards, including many serious injury risks. However, these worksites can be made safer with proper care by employers and worksite managers. Unfortunately, many employers cut corners to save on time or overhead costs. This results in unnecessarily dangerous work zones with issues such as a lack of worker safety training, no personal protection equipment, and malfunctioning or poorly maintained heavy machinery.
If a negligent employer, contractor or third party caused your recent industrial accident, you may have grounds to file a Houston personal injury lawsuit. Negligence means that someone failed to use a proper amount of care for the situation, resulting in harm to others. If an investigation finds that your industrial accident in Houston could have been prevented with due care, one or more parties may be financially responsible for your medical bills and other losses.
When Should You File an Industrial Accident Claim?
Contact a Houston workplace accident attorney near you as soon as possible after an industrial accident in Texas. As a general rule, you only have two years from the date of your accident (or the date of injury or illness discovery) to file a personal injury claim. If your loved one passed away in a fatal industrial accident, you have two years from the date of his or her death. If you wish to file a workers’ compensation claim, you have 30 days to report the injury to your employer and 1 year to file a claim. These are Texas’s statute of limitations, and they have only rare exceptions.
