Brooklyn Industrial and Manufacturing Accidents Lawyer

While many jobs have hazards in the workplace, industrial and manufacturing sites may be more dangerous than other places of work. No matter the kind of industrial or manufacturing accident you are in, it is important to consult a Brooklyn workers’ compensation or personal injury lawyer to help you with your case.

At Shulman & Hill, we are here to help you with all of your accident-related legal needs. We have a team of workers’ compensation and personal injury experts who can assist you with both types of claims. If you have been in an accident, contact us for a free legal consultation.

What Can Cause an Industrial Accident in Brooklyn?

The manufacturing industry can be hazardous for workers. While local manufacturing and development in Brooklyn is great for the economy, close attention needs to be paid to safety measures to ensure the workers do not get hurt.

If people are not careful, the possibility of accidents is high. Some of the most common accidents that can happen in the manufacturing industry include:

Failure to Maintain Machinery

It is important for the company in charge to maintain all of their machinery to make sure it is in working condition to avoid accidents. Maintenance can be expensive, especially for a smaller manufacturer. Unfortunately, this may lead to companies holding off on maintenance as long as possible in the hopes of stretching their budget. This will likely create additional safety hazards and increase the likelihood of a machine malfunctioning.

If you are in an accident and injured because of machinery that is not maintained properly, contact an attorney to discuss your case.

Insufficient Training for Workers

Another common issue that may require you to consult a Brooklyn industrial and manufacturing accident lawyer is insufficient training.

Workers need to have a deep understanding of the machinery they are using in order for them to operate it safely and correctly. The issue of unqualified workers is common when a company is short on staff and they need to do the work as quickly as possible, regardless of whether the new employee has been trained or not.

Accidents are likely to happen when the worker is untrained and does not possess enough skills to operate machinery correctly. Even with the best of intentions and caution, they may make a mistake and harm themselves or a colleague.

If you are in an accident because a general contractor, subcontractor, or property owner instructed you to use equipment that you were not qualified or trained to use, this may be an example of negligence. We are able to help with this kind of case and can help you hold them accountable for your injury. Contact us to learn more.

Safety Standards Are Not Followed

There are laws and regulations that require safety standards to be followed in order to keep workers safe. Contractors and property owners might skip some steps in an effort to save time or money. However, this can have devastating consequences.

If you are a victim of an industrial and manufacturing accident in Brooklyn that may have been caused by a contractor or property owner’s negligence, it is important to find the right attorney to help you file a personal injury claim. They can take care of your case and make sure you can get a fair amount of compensation that you may be entitled to.

Compensation After a Brooklyn Industrial Accident

There are different types of compensation that you may be eligible for after an accident at work. No matter what the injuries are or how much time you need off work, our team is here to make sure you get the compensation that you may deserve.

The first type of compensation that we are able to look at is for your medical bills. It is common for industrial and manufacturing injuries to require medical assistance or even hospitalization. This means you likely have bills piling up for a time from hospital or doctor’s office visits. We are happy to help you recover compensation for these losses. We can also look into compensation for future medical bills, in case your doctor recommends long-term care.

The accident may also lead to lost wages. You may need to take time to rest and recover and miss time from work. Your injuries may temporarily or permanently disable you from going back to your job, especially if you were doing manual labor. If the accident makes you unable to handle your previous job, we can look into compensation for those losses as well. Our team will take an in-depth look at your case to ensure the full extent of your financial losses is taken into consideration.

Besides reviewing your losses, an attorney can also help determine if a third party can be held responsible for additional compensation beyond your workers’ compensation benefits. In addition to medical care, a personal injury lawsuit against a negligent third party may result in compensation for pain and suffering.
