What Causes Manhattan Machinery Accidents?

If you work in an industrial setting or a construction setting, you are likely made aware when you are hired that your work might be dangerous. There are many causes that might lead to a machinery accident. They include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Age of the machine
  • Wear and tear on equipment parts or surfaces
  • Improper use of the machine
  • Improper safety protocols in place for use of the machine
  • Machine fires or explosions
  • Machine failures
  • Lack of proper maintenance
  • Loose clothing, hair, or jewelry getting caught in machines

Any of these mistakes or oversights can lead to a major accident that could harm many people. There may have been warning signs that a machine failure was going to happen that were missed because it was not regularly inspected. It is also possible that ignorance of proper equipment usage might have led to the machinery accident. Any neglect of an industrial machine could lead to major problems and hazards over time.

One of our Manhattan machinery accident lawyers can investigate the cause of your accident. This can be crucial if you want to pursue the compensation that you may be entitled to after suffering a machinery accident.

Determining Liability in a Machinery Accident in Manhattan

Identifying who may be responsible for a machinery accident can be a major part of an investigation. While it might seem that the owner of the machinery may be liable for the accident, that may not be the case. A proper investigation is often conducted in these cases to discover which actions led to the accident. In some cases, a negligent property owner or contractor may have contributed to your accident. A lawyer can make sure that any and all potentially liable parties are identified.

Our team can work hard on your behalf to figure out if negligent behavior caused your accident. The parties who might be held liable for your accident are:

  • Property owners
  • General contractors
  • Subcontractors

If any of these parties are found to be negligent, you may be qualified to file a personal injury lawsuit to hold them financially accountable for your injures. Knowing who is liable is crucial to making sure that you can seek all of the compensation you may be entitled to.

Manhattan Machinery Accident Injuries

Machinery accidents are some of the most devastating accidents that someone can suffer from. They can lead to permanent disability that may prevent you from working again and in some cases, an accident may result in fatalities.

Because industrial machinery often requires the use of harmful chemicals and other toxic agents, there is often a risk of chemical exposure or burns. You might also lose a limb or break bones in a machine accident. If the machine is large enough, more than one worker may be affected by the accident.

Since machines are usually connected to other parts of an industrial plant, the failure of one machine might lead to larger accidents involving multiple machines in the plant, like a fire or explosion.

After an accident has taken place, teams may be brought in to do repairs to the machinery and surrounding area. These workers might be injured by falling debris or chemical exposure. If your injury came as a result of trying to clean up a machine accident, you may also be entitled to compensation. You should contact a Manhattan machinery accident attorney to learn more.

Can I Seek Compensation For My Machinery Accident?

Your lawyer can look at the details of your accident and verify whether or not it is possible for you to seek compensation for your injuries. Many of these types of accidents are very serious and involve many parties, but your lawyer can make sure that the investigation has been conducted correctly and thoroughly. At Shulman & Hill, we work hard to make sure that you have a fair shot at pursuing the maximum amount of compensation that you may be entitled to.

Your lawyer can review your medical bills, workers’ compensation statements, and other necessary information related to your case for you. They can make sure that all of the necessary information has been gathered to represent you during negotiations. If needed, they can fight on your behalf in a trial.
