San Francisco, California Industrial Accident Attorneys

Industrial Burn Accident Lawyers

An industrial work site is typically filled with a lot of activity, a lot of workers, and many independent companies coordinating activities.  When the worst happens, and an explosion or fire erupts and injures or kills workers, it can be challenging to understand the causes and the liable parties.

We have a team of San Francisco, California industrial accident attorneys who have the experience it takes to sort through all the information about an accident and determine who should be held responsible.

  • With fuel deliveries, huge boilers, and high temperatures, electrical utilities and their suppliers have to exercise extreme caution in handling and burning fuels.  Fires and explosions can cause devastating injuries and wrongful death.
  • On any industrial site or construction site, temporary electrical wiring, when not properly installed and maintained, can cause electrical burns and electrocution.
  • Chemicals are important in manufacturing and other industrial businesses.  When chemicals are mishandled, mislabeled, improperly stored, or improperly mixed, workers can be victims of painful, life-threatening chemical burns.
  • An unshielded vat on a glazing machine can destroy an arm or leg.  An unshielded saw can cut off a limb.  Safety shields need to be in place and work properly at all times to prevent burn injuries and other industrial accidents.

Chemical burns, fires, explosions, and other industrial accidents are too often dismissed as "accidental." At the Walkup, Melodia chemical burn injury law firm, our California industrial accident lawyers have the technical understanding to get beyond simplified explanations.  We know how to investigate an accident and determine the causes for chemical burn injuries.

When safety procedures are not in place or are not followed, injuries are not accidental.  They are the result of negligence.  If you have suffered electrical or chemical burns at work or if a loved one has died because of chemical burns, we can help.
