The Advocacy You Need for the Compensation You Deserve

When working with heavy machinery, one must exercise extreme caution. Accidents can happen very easily if industry safety standards are not practiced and upheld. When accidents do happen, it's more often due to human error. Thus, if you or a loved one are injured in an accident involving heavy machinery, there may be a negligent and/or liable party.

What Causes Heavy Machinery Accidents?

Cause and liability must be established in order to obtain maximum recovery. Even though workers who are injured on the job can receive workers' compensation, they may also be entitled to compensation acquired in a third party liability lawsuit. This, of course, depends on the specifics of the accident. This may include any one, or more, of the following common causes of heavy machinery accidents:

  • A worker makes a crucial mistake due to lack of training, on-the-job experience, and/or concentration

  • A supervisor or another person in a position of authority instructs employees to take dangerous actions, causing the accident

  • The worksite is a dangerous environment with issues such as incomplete structures and unstable ground

  • The machinery is defectively designed or manufactured and suffers a critical breakdown
