Homestead Heavy Equipment Failures

Certain professions, including truck driving, agricultural work, and construction work, require workers to operate heavy machinery such as cranes, bulldozers, backhoes, forklifts, loaders, tractors, and trucks. When something goes wrong, this type of equipment can quickly become deadly.

If you have been injured on the job through heavy equipment failure, contact Flaxman Law Group at any time for legal advice. The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group believe that everyone deserves justice and compensation for injuries that were caused through no fault of their own. If you think you may have a case or would like to know how much your case may be worth, contact Flaxman Law Group through the web site or by calling 866-352-9626. Our phone lines are staffed around the clock, so that you can always reach someone if you are ready to take advantage of your free case consultation.

How Equipment Failure Happens

Equipment failure can occur for a number of reasons:

  • Incorrect use of the equipment
  • Lack of worker training as to the correct use of equipment
  • Inadequate supervision
  • Faulty equipment design
  • Manufacturer defects

No matter why it occurs, heavy equipment failure in Homestead can lead to catastrophic injuries, including:

  • Head injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Disfigurement
  • Fractures
  • Amputation
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Burns
  • Fatalities
You Do Have Rights

If you have been injured in a workplace accident in Homestead or have sustained an injury from heavy equipment in some other way, you do have rights. Many of these accidents are preventable and if your injuries were caused by negligence you may have a product liability claim or another legal claim that you can pursue in order to seek justice and compensation in your case. Your first step is to get medical attention for your injuries and report any workplace injuries. However, you will also want to call a personal injury attorney in order to find out whether you qualify.

If your injury occurred at work, you may qualify for workers compensation in your Homestead case. However, keep in mind that once you accept any insurance money or settlement, you may lose your ability to seek fairer compensation -- no matter how much more your injuries end up costing. For this reason alone, it is important to get legal advice about your injuries and about any offers made before you make a final decision.

The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group have seen many instances where a person has not sought out the advice of a personal injury attorney quickly after an injury – and this has ended up costing a great deal. Not getting immediate legal advice can mean that you inadvertently sign away your rights or lose important opportunities and evidence that could help secure compensation on your behalf. If you have suffered an injury, the time to act is now. Contact Flaxman Law Group by calling 866-352-9626 at any time or use the web form or email to contact the law firm for a no cost, no obligation case review. You can consult with a personal injury attorney about your case so that you can make a decision from a position of strength.
