Many jobs involve the use of heavy equipment and industrial machinery, such as factory, warehouse and construction work. The tasks involved, and even the machinery itself, can be extremely dangerous. As a result, employees working in or around this equipment often suffer serious injuries, and even death. The lawyers at Jacoby and Meyers have been helping accident victims for 40 years. We provide the experience and skills those who have suffered injuries from machinery accidents in the New York City area need to secure compensation for their damages.
Recovering From Your Devastating Injuries
Workplace machinery can cause severe injuries from broken bones to loss of limbs and burns. Even if you know what you are doing and take proper precautions, an accident can still occur, producing unfortunate consequences. In the past four decades we have seen all types of injuries caused by hazardous machinery, such as:
These injuries can require costly, extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation. They can also prevent you from working or impact your future work capacity. You need a law firm that knows how to aggressively pursue the compensation you deserve so you can focus on your recovery. Our skilled Personal Injury and Workers’ Compensation attorneys will diligently fight for your rights. Typically injured employees cannot sue their employers. Instead, you need to file a Workers’ Compensation Claim to recoup damages. If the employer has committed gross negligence, however, you may be able to personally sue in addition to your Workers’ Compensation claim. You may also be able to seek additional compensation by filing a claim against a:
- Manufacturer for a defective product or failing to warn of a risk
- Contractor or Co-Worker for negligence
- Supervisor for failure to train, supervise, or follow safety guidelines
