Like construction workers, individuals employed in industrial fields are typically susceptible to a greater degree of risk while on the job. Accidents are all-too-common occurrences at refineries, plants, oilfields, and other industrial sites. When they occur, workers can suffer devastating, catastrophic injuries and even death.
The Atlanta industrial accident attorneys at Whiteman, Hamilton & Conklin, LLC can help you if you were injured or your loved one was killed in an industrial accident.

Examples of Industrial Accidents
As in any type of industry, accidents in the industrial field are bound to happen. Unfortunately, due to the nature of industrial sites, industrial accidents tend to result in extensive bodily harm and/or death.
