The term ‘industrial accidents’ can cover a wide range of incidents that occur in America’s workplaces. From explosions on oil derricks and oil spills, to toxic chemical leaks and mine disasters, industrial accidents can wreak havoc on the health and safety of workers and the public, alike.

When industrial accidents happen, injuries can range from minor ones to loss of life. In the case of such serious occurrences as explosions, chemical spills, structure failures and mine collapses, injuries may leave workers permanently unable to work because of multiple broken bones, internal organ damage, lost limbs, spinal cord injuries that cause paralysis, traumatic brain injuries, and other serious and fatal injuries.
