Heavy Equipment Accident Lawyers

It’s Dangerous Work
Operating heavy mobile equipment is skilled work that requires training, competence and attention to safety at all times. Unfortunately, the person operating the equipment sometimes lacks the necessary training and experience. Other times, the person is careless or reckless in the way he operates the machinery. As a result, others are put at risk of harm.
Contractors and others at Work Site
Often there are different contractors and their employees working on an industrial site at the same time.
If you sustained an injury and the responsible party is your own employer, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. If however, you or a loved one are injured and the responsible party is a contractor on the work site or one of its employees, you may be able to obtain compensation for your injuries and damages in what is known as a “third-party” case.
