Machinery Injuries

After a Heavy Machinery Injury: Get the Best Possible Legal Advice and Recover Your Losses

Workers who operate heavy machinery or equipment know that machinery and power tool accidents can happen at any time.

They can happen due to safety equipment failure, electrical failure, mechanical defects, or lack of warnings on the machine or in the workplace. Sometimes it happens because the operator was not given enough job training.

Even when you know the risk and a danger involved, once you are injured in a machinery accident, “risk and danger” take on a whole new meaning.

Suddenly you are out of work and facing intense medical bills, loss of present and maybe future income and benefits. You might need of months of bed rest, therapy or rehabilitation, as well as dealing with pain and suffering, while your family deals with loss of income and the loss of your active presence in their lives.


If you were injured while working at a factory, construction site, farm, packaging plant, warehouse—anywhere heavy equipment is being used—you must contact the right attorneys immediately. If possible, before you file a workers’ compensation claim.

You should be eligible to collect workers’ compensation benefits if you were injured while performing work duties. But workers’ compensation cases can be complex, and the benefits have certain limits.

If a third part was negligent in your case, such as a contractor, subcontractor, maintenance company or product manufacturer, you may have a case for a personal injury or manufacturing defect lawsuit. The right personal injury attorney will have the know-how and experience needed for you to recover the maximum benefits and compensation you are entitled to.
