Los Angeles Industrial Accidents Caused by Poor Maintenance
Poorly Maintained Machinery and Accidents
A job environment that uses industrial machinery has the potential for accidents that cause serious injuries. Industrial machinery requires proper maintenance to work efficiently and properly. Poor maintenance of machinery can cause malfunctions, which cause accidents where workers are injured.
An employer may violate OSHA safety standards by failing to maintain industrial equipment. The negligence that causes an accident may make the responsible party liable to the injured victim for lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering and loss of companionship.
A victim injured in an industrial machinery accident caused by poor maintenance of equipment should contact a Los Angeles industrial machinery accident attorney for legal advice as to the available compensation for injuries.
