If you are a worker injured by the negligent operation, breakdown or malfunction of heavy equipment, you may have a right to file a lawsuit for damages, in addition to your workers’ compensation claim. The workers’ compensation claim addresses only your employer’s liability. If your injury was caused by the negligence or carelessness of a third party, you may have a separate claim against that party for damages.

We meticulously prepare every case we handle, paying close attention to every detail. We often settle claims at or above insurance policy limits, and we have obtained numerous verdicts or settlements in excess of $1 million.

OUR HEAVY EQUIPMENT ACCIDENT INJURY PRACTICE
If you have been injured in a heavy equipment accident, chances are your injuries are severe. The sheer size of most heavy equipment can lead to serious and catastrophic injuries, including brain or spinal cord trauma, paralysis, loss of limb and even wrongful death.
We handle all types of heavy equipment accident claims, including cases involving
- construction trucks, such as dump trucks, cement mixers, boom trucks or bucket trucks.
- forklifts or scissor life.
- bulldozers, excavators, scrapers, backhoes or graders.
- cranes or derricks.
- front end loaders or skid loaders.
Heavy equipment accidents can take many forms. A crane or derrick may fall over or may come in contact with power lines. Graders or dozers may slide or tip over on unstable ground. Vehicles may collide where traffic patterns are uncertain and not properly managed. Workers can fall from bucket trucks or cherry pickers.
While most heavy equipment accidents occur on construction sites, people can also be injured when these machines are transported from one site to another. We handle cases involving all types of injuries sustained in a heavy equipment accident, from soft-tissue injuries to accidental or wrongful death.
Our lawyers handle all personal injury claims, including heavy equipment accidents, on a contingent fee basis. We will only charge attorney fees if we are able to recover compensation for your injuries.
