Work injuries, forklift accidents, injuries to hands, feet, fingers and toes from unguarded and/or otherwise unsafe tools and other equipment
When you are injured at your place of work, often your employer’s Workmen’s Compensation insurance will cover your medical bills. However, there are times when a third party is at fault for your injuries and in these types of cases, you can potentially recover significantly more for your injuries. If you are operating a forklift or moving pallets using a pneumatic device and boxes, crates or other products fall on you because they were not packaged correctly or stacked correctly, you may have a cause of action against the company that packaged the product and/or delivered the product to your place of work. If you are working on a construction site and you are hit by a piece of equipment or if a scaffolding collapses or a crane collapses and you are injured, you may have a cause of action against the manufacturer of the equipment or other third parties who were working on the site or who provided the equipment. When choosing a lawyer to handle this type of case, it is important to make sure that your lawyer has the knowledge and experience to deal with the sophisticated issues involved in this type of case.
