Heavy machinery is simply a fact of life in many occupations. Any of the following pieces of machinery have the potential to create severe harm.
Accidents involving heavy machinery can have many causes. Operator error is a common cause. Those who operate heavy machinery must be properly trained and licensed for the job. Employers must follow a host of federal regulations including Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA) regulations, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations and other regulations. When employers violate these regulations it can lead to severe injuries.
In other cases, unsecured or improperly secured loads can lead to serious injuries. When heavy equipment is not in proper working order or is defectively designed or manufactured, accidents and severe injuries can result.
Workers’ compensation is available to injured workers under Alabama law. In situations where someone other than your employer caused your injuries, you can bring a personal injury against this third party. Our law firm understands how to investigate these types of serious injuries and how to hold the responsible parties accountable. In every case, we will devote our efforts to helping you get your full measure of damages.
