Industrial and manufacturing accidents are difficult matters that change the lives of accident victims.
But what makes them tragedies is the fact that most could have been prevented. Many industrial and manufacturing accidents occur when employers did not take the time to properly maintain machines or to give proper training to their employees. Some occur after deliberate removal of safety features — just to speed up the manufacturing process.
At Rosenn Jenkins & Greenwald LLP, we represent industrial and manufacturing accident victims in both workers’ compensation claims and personal injury lawsuits. While most workplace accidents are covered by workers’ compensation insurance, it may also be possible to file a personal injury claim in certain situations.
Working in many different communities throughout northeastern Pennsylvania, our clients are people who have received many different kinds of serious personal injuries in industrial and manufacturing accidents. These include burns, scarring and disfigurement, lost limbs, head injuries, spinal cord injuries and paralysis. We also represent the surviving family members of workers killed in accidents, helping them file wrongful death claims in Pennsylvania courts.
