You likely are entitled to compensation for such losses. To learn more about your legal options, review your case with an attorney in Brooklyn. At Shulman & Hill, a dedicated machinery accidents lawyer will review the details of your case and help you determine how to optimize your chances of securing the full amount of compensation to which you may be entitled.

Brooklyn Machinery Accidents: Essential Information

Brooklyn machinery accidents can have substantial consequences for those involved. Research indicates that various types of machines account for approximately 13 percent of workplace fatalities in the United States.

Potential causes of Brooklyn machinery accidents include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Failure to properly train employees or communicate safety guidelines
  • Failure to properly maintain equipment
  • Defective machinery
  • Unsafe work sites
  • Negligent machinery operation
  • Failure to provide employees with adequate safety gear

Types of Brooklyn Machinery Accidents

Machinery accidents in Brooklyn can take a variety of forms. The following are merely a few noteworthy examples:

  • Getting caught between vehicles or similar types of machinery. This may happen when those operating are not vigilantly monitoring their surroundings.
  • Machinery or vehicles striking workers
  • Loads falling off forklifts or other types of machinery, striking workers nearby
  • Vehicles overturning while employees are operating them
  • Workers falling off machinery when attempting to dismount
  • Workers’ clothing getting caught in machinery, causing them to be dragged or pulled unnaturally if the machinery is in use
  • Workers being pinned beneath heavy machinery

Injuries you might sustain in a Brooklyn machinery accident include:

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Spinal cord injuries that may result in paralysis
  • Head trauma, which can potentially cause many long-term cognitive struggles
  • Lacerations
  • Burns
  • Disfigurement

What to Do After a Brooklyn Machinery Accident

Unless you require medical care right away, you should immediately report the machinery accident to your supervisor. Keeping records of the incident and all details pertaining to it will make recovering compensation in the future easier than it otherwise might be.

Next, seek medical attention. This is critical even if you do not notice any signs of injury. It is possible to sustain a major injury without realizing it, and it is best to prioritize your health accordingly. Additionally, being able to show that you went to a doctor right away can also help you when filing a claim later on.

The Aftermath of a Brooklyn Machinery Accident

Any injury you sustain in a Brooklyn machinery accident will likely require medical treatment, whether it is minor, short-term care, or more extensive long-term care. The cost of any treatment can be high, especially if you require hospitalization or surgery.

Your injuries may also make it impossible for you to return to work, temporarily or permanently. Either way, if you cannot work, you are unable to earn a paycheck, which makes paying your medical bills even more challenging.

You most likely are entitled to compensation for such losses. Contact our workers’ compensation law firm in Brooklyn to learn more.

How Our Machinery Accidents Law Firm in Brooklyn Can Help

There are many reasons seeking representation from a Brooklyn machinery accidents lawyer can be helpful in these circumstances. We can assist by:

Proving You Have a Valid Claim

Machinery accidents are often work-related. You may seek compensation for your losses associated with such an accident by filing a claim for workers’ compensation.

There are instances when an insurer may believe they can justify denying your claim by arguing that your accident was not work-related. Or, they may argue that you are not entitled to any compensation benefits because you intentionally tried to harm yourself in hopes of a payout. Our legal team can look into the details of the incident to gather all the evidence necessary to support your case.

Pursuing Compensation

This may be your first experience filing a workers’ compensation claim after being injured in a machinery accident. Our Brooklyn machinery accident attorneys can review all of your qualified losses, including medical costs and lost wages, to help ensure you receive all of the compensation you are eligible for.


In some cases, you may need to negotiate with an insurance company to recover what you are entitled to.

This is another task we can assist you with. The attorneys at Shulman & Hill can handle all major correspondence with the insurance company. We can provide evidence to show you are entitled to the compensation you are seeking and will help you challenge any denials. If we cannot reach an agreement with the insurance company, our workers’ compensation attorneys are prepared to represent your case before a judge.
