An Indiana Law Firm Advocating For The Rights Of Injured Steel Mill Workers

The steel industry is critical to the economy and workforce of Indiana. We produce more steel than any other state in the country, and millions of workers make a living in this thriving profession. Unfortunately, steel mills have always been, and will continue to be, highly dangerous workplaces. Injuries are common, and fatality rates are significantly higher than in most other jobs.

If you work in the steel industry, you need to know your rights and resources in the event of a serious workplace accident. At Hilbrich Law Firm, our experienced attorneys have been guiding clients through the state’s workers’ compensation system since we opened our doors in 1952. We have helped countless others seek these much-needed benefits, and we can help you, too.

Workers Face Serious Risks On The Job

Steel workers in Indiana face hazards that most other workers don’t need to worry about, including:

  • Burn injuries from exposure to molten metal, fires and explosions
  • Machinery accidents that can cause limb loss and crushing injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries caused by falls from height
  • Traumatic brain injuries sustained after being struck in the head by falling or swinging objects
  • Long-term illness caused by exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Motor vehicle accidents involving the large industrial trucks that regularly come and go from the facility

Many of the injuries that steel workers experience can be life-changing or career-ending. In order to ensure you have access to long-term disability benefits through workers’ compensation, it is wise to consult an attorney like those at our firm.

We Help Families Who Have Lost Someone In A Fatal Accident

Sadly, steel mill injuries often prove to be fatal. If you’ve lost someone you love in a steel mill accident, our attorneys can inform you of all your legal options. Depending on the circumstances, we may be able to help you pursue workers’ compensation death benefits or file a wrongful death claim on behalf of the deceased.
