Injuries From Heavy Equipment And Machinery Accidents

On construction sites and other job sites across New York City, heavy machinery is used on a daily basis to get the jobs done. These pieces of machinery can often weigh several hundred or even thousands of pounds and are extremely dangerous when not utilized effectively.

Additionally, machinery that is improperly secured or is functionally defective can pose a threat to workers who rely on that machinery for their livelihoods.

Crush Injuries

In some of the worst cases involving heavy machinery, a piece of heavy machinery is dropped on or falls onto a worker. This in an extremely dangerous situation, as the mechanisms needed to lift the machinery need to be utilized immediately to prevent any further injuries or death.

The crush injuries that result may prevent a worker from ever returning to work, living life as he or she did before, or even having use of a limb or body part. Some crush injuries are so severe that the bones cannot effectively be pieced back together and doctors may recommend amputating the body part.

Wrongful Death

Unfortunately, many accidents involving heavy machinery result in the death of the victim. He or she may be killed instantly or perish later due to fatal injuries. Regardless of when the death occurred, surviving family members have options for seeking justice.

We are committed to compassionately helping clients understand their rights and aggressively pursue a resolution to the wrongful death lawsuit that was filed on behalf of the grieving family.
