The United States enjoys a robust industrial sector, which is good for the economy – but the men and women that work in the fields quietly put themselves in harm’s way each and every day to keep America running. But when they get hurt, their employer, and those working around them, quickly scurry to the hills disclaiming any fault.
While many employers and job sites do their best to maintain an injury free workplace, and try their best to prevent serious accidents, serious accidents still happen across this country – every day. And when this happens, these companies, insurance companies or corporate defendants have been known to mobilize quickly to shift the blame back onto workers or third parties.
If you or a loved one has been injured at an industrial plant or refinery, Daly & Black, P.C. can help you obtain the compensation you need to recover.

If you have been injured, you should:
- Seek the necessary medical attention right away – visit a doctor of your choice as soon as possible. Do not wait until the time seems right to leave.
- By obtaining treatment immediately, you will not only increase your chances of a full recovery, but you will also have a professional’s testimony concerning the full extent and nature of your injuries. Avoid going to doctors or professionals hand picked by your employer or insurer – go to a care provider you know and trust that can give you good independent advice.
- Report the injury to your employer immediately – let your physician document what happened to you so that your employer can obtain insurance coverage for the treatment.
- Do not sign any papers, releases, or give any sworn or other accounts of the event until speaking to a lawyer that can adequately prepare you. Oftentimes employers and insurers will take advantage of your vulnerability by having you make admissions that give away rights or trap you into a wrongful position that will be used later in any litigation.
After your employer notifies their insurer of your injury, you will find out whether or not your healthcare will be covered. If it is not, the lawyers at Daly & Black, P.C. can assist you in finding and even paying for the care you need.
