Were You Injured During a Machinery Accident?
If you’ve been injured due to a machinery accident, you may be struggling to get back on your feet. Some machine-related injuries can make it harder or even impossible for you to return to work. Even if you make a full recovery, skyrocketing medical bills can still make it hard to get back on your feet.
As a diligent worker, you try your best to operate machines in a safe and responsible manner, but sometimes accidents can occur anyway. If you work around machines, your employer has an obligation to help keep you as safe as possible. Depending on the type of machinery, they may have to adhere to certain safety protocols, schedule regular maintenance, and/or provide proper training for use. The machine manufacturer also has a responsibility to ensure that their product is as safe as possible.
If either your employer or the machine manufacturer fails to follow required safety protocols, workers like you can get injured. These preventable injuries make the workplace more dangerous for everyone.
Fortunately, if you were injured by a machine, a lawyer can help. You may be entitled to a financial settlement for the emotional and physical damages you suffered. A lawyer may also be able to help you navigate health insurance and workers’ compensation systems.
