Chemical injury. Factory explosions. Injury or death in mills. Residential and commercial construction site accidents.
Let Johnson Johnson & Schaller help determine if you have compensatory damages that exceed workers’ compensation benefits. To learn more about “third-party” civil claims in construction and job site injuries, see our workers’ compensation practice page.
Our attorneys carefully analyze the facts and circumstances of each situation. Faulty installation of equipment or structures, unrealistic and accelerated business schedules, defective parts or products, all comprise components of cases we have successfully resolved on behalf of our clients.
The following are representative Johnson Johnson & Schaller industrial and construction accident cases.
Propane Tank Explosion. We represented two factory workers severely burned when a defectively designed gauge dial on a propane tank caused a propane leak and explosion. We successfully prosecuted a claim against the manufacturers of the tank and the gauge. The case settled after two days of mediation with a Federal District Court judge.
Explosion in Wood Mill Green Dryer. Our client suffered severe burns and died as a result of an explosion in a particle board green dryer. Our investigation showed that the dryer system failed to have appropriate safety features in its computer logic controls and lacked adequate explosion vents. The case involved engineering design issues, computer software, and multiple technical specialties.
Industrial Chemical Accident. While working in the wood products industry, our client was blinded in one eye when a chemical-delivery system failed and sprayed chemicals into his face.
Chemical Spill Injury. A truck driver suffered “Reactive Airways Distress Syndrome” following exposure to fumes from a chemical spill. Our investigation revealed that the tanker truck failed to follow proper filling procedures to ensure the safety of the driver and users of the public roadways. We successfully negotiated a settlement on behalf of our injured client.
