Common Types of Heavy Machinery Accidents
Workers face catastrophic bodily injuries when they are involved in work accidents with heavy machinery. Heavy machinery on construction sites and in industrial settings creates real risks for workers.
Heavy machinery that is potentially hazardous includes:
- Punch press
- Drill press
- Motor vehicles
Although men and women who work with heavy machinery and dangerous equipment have a high tolerance for the risk that comes with this type of work, you nonetheless deserve effective medical care and replacement of your lost wages when you suffer a work injury.
At the Ricci Law Firm, P.A., our Greenville workers’ compensation attorneys have 60 years of combined experience working to protect the rights of injured workers and to help ensure that they receive all of the workers' compensation benefits they deserve. During our decades of service, we have seen firsthand the challenges that confront injured workers and their families. We know how hard it can be. That is why we are committed to offering the exceptional representation injured workers and their families need.
Life-Altering Injuries Caused by Heavy Machinery
Workers' compensation claims based on a heavy machinery accident can involve virtually any type of serious physical injury, such as:
- Broken bones/fractures
- Brain injury
- Back and neck injury
- Crushing injuries
Construction sites and industrial settings often have employees of multiple businesses working near each other, including subcontractors, repairmen and vendors. If your accident was caused by someone who worked for another company, you can pursue compensation directly from that company in addition to workers' compensation benefits through your employer's insurance.
