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 Personal Injury Attorneys will work closely with experts and investigators to prove liability and hold the at-fault party or parties accountable.

    This law firm handled my case with great professionalism. I got an outstanding recovery. The service was fast and friendly. They really are the best. I would recommend them to anyone. Mary J., Personal Injury Client

    I had a complex medical malpractice case and I wasn’t sure if there was an liability there. I felt there was some negligent behavior on the part of some nursing home staff. This firm, through Marion Munley, took me through all the steps necessary to prove negligent behavior that might have caused death of my loved one. She was very compassionate and very detailed and patience. I think they are a terrific firm. There wasn’t anything I disliked… I would highly recommend them as a Personal Injury Law Firm. They also handle all types of car and truck accidents, workers compensation and social security disability. I think they are the best in town. Guest of Bing
