Representing those Injured by Heavy Equipment
OSHA typically regulates how heavy machinery should be used on a construction site to ensure the safety of employees. If those in charge of a site fail to uphold these regulations, you may be able to hold them accountable in an injury claim.
Heavy equipment accidents can result from:
- Bulldozer accidents
- Crane failure
- Forklift accidents
- Inadequate safety equipment
- Inadequate training for equipment use
- Machinery failures
- Road construction accidents
If you happen to be injured on a job site while working, you may be entitled to a workers’ compensation claim which can help cover your medical bills and lost wages. Workers’ compensation works differently than standard personal injury claims, however, in that they are aimed at obtaining lost wages and medical payments for the injured worker.
