Legal Protection After an Industrial Accident
Because construction work and other industrial jobs are among the most dangerous in the nation, there are numerous regulations in place. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has rules set in place that are designed to keep employers, employees and their facilities safe. However, when those regulations are ignored, workers can be catastrophically injured or killed.
If your loved one was injured in an industrial or construction accident, it is important to work with experienced Chicago industrial accident attorneys who can help hold the negligent party accountable. At Grazian Volpe, P.C., we work with construction workers and other plant workers who were injured because of industrial accidents.

Types of Industrial Accidents
Each year, industrial accidents account for more than 1,000 deaths and many more injuries. Given the dangers of industrial plants, here are a few of the main types of accidents that take place:
- Chemical explosions can be traumatic for the people involved, and they may also suffer from any toxins to which they were exposed.
- Many people suffer from contact dermatitis after having an allergic reaction to a chemical. In many situations, individuals have an innocuous reaction to a chemical, but they are unable to tolerate being around the chemical after that.
- Occupation diseases such as asbestosis are also a dangerous side effect of working with certain chemicals.
- Burns from chemical exposure or manufacturing processes.
- Amputations caused by contact with moving machine parts.
