Industrial accidents commonly occur in particular industries, but that does not diminish the emotional trauma or severity of injuries incurred in an accident. Although many workers understand the danger associated with certain jobs, if the work environment does not contain proper safeguards or business managers fail to safely maintain the workplace, the company could be liable for injuries or even fatalities that workers face while performing tasks.
