Factors contributing to an industrial accident

An industrial accident does not always cause injury or death; however, there is the possibility that it could do so. No two accidents are the same, but there are some contributing factors that are more common than others. These include contractor negligence, faulty equipment, a lack of safety and ignoring safety requirements.

If a person is injured in an industrial accident, he or she may be able to make a claim against a third party to receive compensation. Here are two situations in which this may occur:

-- A person is injured by a defective product. In this case, he or she may be able to receive compensation from the manufacturer. This could be something as simple as a forklift that is missing a safety device.

-- A contractor is responsible for causing the accident. This could include things such as a trucker hitting a worker or leaving debris that leads to a slip and fall.

There are times when an injured party is only able to collect workers' compensation. There are also times when a person is able to collect this benefit, while also making a third party claim. This is all based on the situation -- primarily who was responsible for the accident.
