Industrial Accidents in Texas
In 2001, about 5,900 employees lost their lives while working throughout the country. Employees show up to work expecting to work in safe environments without their lives being at stake. Employers are constantly supposed to make sure there are no toxic or hazardous materials around their employees, and if there are, they are expected to inform their employees of possible safety hazards. When employers fail to do this, they risk being responsible for the lives of their deceased employees.
