Heavy Equipment Accidents and Injuries

Construction is an inherently dangerous line of work. An accident with heavy machinery can cause serious, even life-threatening injuries:

  • Amputation of the limbs
  • Broken bones
  • Severe burns
  • Shock from electrocution
  • Eye or other facial injuries
  • Hearing loss
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Back and spinal cord injuries

If you were injured in an accident with a forklift, bulldozer, backhoe, crane, truck, grader, or other heavy machine, you may need legal help to get the appropriate compensation. A heavy equipment accident lawyer will ensure that you receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, ongoing therapy, and pain and suffering.

Who is at Fault for My Accident?

Employers have a duty to implement appropriate safety programs and procedures to prevent heavy equipment accidents. This includes equipment inspection and maintenance, and adequate employee training.  Visitors or passersby who suffer an injury from work site equipment may sue the construction company if negligence contributed to the accident. Employees injured on the job are entitled to workers’ compensation.

However, if the machine itself proves defective, the equipment manufacturer may be liable as well. An experienced work injury lawyer at Munley Law will work closely with experts and investigators to prove liability and hold the at-fault party or parties accountable.

She and her team answered my calls, my questions, and my concerns for everything and anything I needed. Also she and her team made me feel like a part of their family and I thank them very much for their experience. David, Car Accident Client
