Pittsburgh-area worker's leg crushed in industrial accident

Just a half-hour drive northwest of Pittsburgh brings you to Ambridge. Named after a bridge-making company, the town was once one of the centers of the American steel industry. While times have changed, steel fabrication continues in the town along the Ohio River.

A worker at an Ambridge steel plant was apparently badly injured recently "when his leg was crushed under a piece of pipe," a news report stated. The report did not contain a status report on the man's medical condition.

The workplace accident occurred in the early morning, not long after midnight, media outlets said. Beaver County emergency officials said the man was taken to a Pittsburgh hospital, but no other details were available.

While little information about this particular incident has been disclosed, we know that in similar cases, the victim in an industrial accident will use an attorney to analyze the pursuit of compensation from an array of possible sources. Workers' compensation is, of course, one possibility, but depending on the circumstances of the accident, the pursuit might include a claim against a third party whose negligence contributed to the on-the-job injuries.

A third-party claim can in many ways provide greater financial protection for the injured worker, recovering damages for not only current and future medical expenses and lost wages, but also for the pain and suffering the worker endures.

An injured worker can discuss the available legal options with experienced Pittsburgh work-injury attorneys dedicated to detailed investigation of the causes of accidents and vigorous pursuit of full compensation.
