Manufacturing is one of the largest industries in the U.S. Roughly 10 percent of the U.S. workforce works in manufacturing. During the manufacturing process, the heavy equipment and chemicals that are used can be hazardous unless proper safety procedures are followed.

Factory jobs account for a large percentage or workplace injuries. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, over 30 percent of all injuries happened in the manufacturing sector. These are often caused by falls, contact with objects or equipment, overexertion or repetitive motion, exposure to chemicals, and malfunctions by heavy machinery.

It is the responsibility of the factory supervisor and people in management positions to insure that the manufacturing equipment is safe and that all equipment is functioning as it supposed to. Employees must also be properly trained to use the machinery. Workplace injuries are more likely to happen when safety takes a second place to production.

It’s been estimated that Americans take over 100 billion trips on elevators each year. While elevators are very convenient, if they are not properly maintained, they can cause serious accidents or even death. There are an estimated 10,000 serious injuries due to elevators in the United States, and dozens of people are killed.

Most of the injuries that occur in elevators happen while the passengers are getting in and out of the elevator. It’s common for people to trip and fall when entering or leaving an elevator, particularly if the car does not properly stop, and is therefore not aligned with the floor. Although most elevators have safety features designed to prevent doors from closing on a person, these safety features can sometimes malfunction, causing injuries. Elevators can sometimes rapidly drop, throwing passengers around and resulting in serious injuries.

The elderly and small children are most at risk of being injured in an elevator. Elderly individuals are more prone to be hurt in a fall, and over half of the elevator-related injuries that require medical attention and involve the elderly are due to trips or falls. Children are also at risk, and their injuries typically involve the arms, hands, or fingers.

Although there are strict laws regulating elevator safety and maintenance, in some cases those laws are ignored. If a person is injured in an elevator because of poor maintenance, or non-functioning safety features, the injured individual could have grounds for a personal injury case. The building owner, the elevator’s manufacturer, or the maintenance company could be held liable for injuries.

If you have been injured by a defective elevator, call the Dallas-Fort Worth personal injury attorneys at The Barber Law Firm. We can help you hold the responsible party legally liable for your injuries. Call today to learn more or to schedule a free consultation on your case.
