Heavy Equipment Injuries
Helping You Get The Compensation And Medical Coverage You Need After An Accident
Heavy machinery helps workers achieve tasks they would not be able to do otherwise. However, when that machinery causes injury or death on a work site, a workers’ compensation claim should be made.
Employers and workers’ compensation insurance companies push back against these claims, denying, delaying and cutting off coverage. At Cherry Injury Law, our lawyers have decades of experience fighting these tactics and getting clients the benefits they are entitled to.
Heavy machinery injuries can result from:
- Crane failure
- Machinery failure
- Forklift accidents
- Inadequate safety equipment
- Bulldozer accidents
- Articulating boom failure
- Compaction machinery
These injuries can be serious, even life changing. Injuries can include damage to the spine, arms, legs and head, as well as heart attacks, amputations, and even death. They can also be caused by repetitive strain from doing the same job over and over again. Any injury that prevents you from doing your current job at your current rate of pay warrants a conversation with a workers’ compensation attorney.
