Heavy Machinery Injuries Resulting in the Workplace – PA

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the ten most dangerous jobs include mining machines, roofing, collecting refuse and recyclable materials, trucking and industrial machinery and the installation, maintenance and repair of heavy machinery. Additionally, working in construction with heavy equipment is inherently dangerous.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has specific rules and regulations surrounding the operation of heavy machinery, especially machinery on a construction site. Despite the importance of following the established rules, many subcontractors and employers still choose to cut corners to save time and money.

Cutting corners can result in heavy machinery accidents that often result in workers’ suffering serious, permanent and life-changing injuries. Workers compensation does not last forever, and in most cases, it does not cover the extent of the medical care and rehabilitative care to which injured workers are entitled.

A law firm with attorneys who have a particular understanding of the issues involved in heavy machinery accident injuries can be of service during these particularly vulnerable times. There are many ways to seek fair and full compensation according to the law in heavy equipment accidents caused by the negligence of a third party.

At the Pennsylvania law firm of Metzger & Kleiner, we represent the injured, including those injured as a result of the following:

  • Operating a forklift or a scissor lift or a boom lift
  • Bucket loader, excavator or grader accidents
  • Snowplows
  • Bobcat or backhoe crashes
  • Cranes that topple over
  • Hazards from uneven surfaces that are dangerous for heavy equipment
  • Defective heavy machinery
  • Poorly designed heavy equipment
  • Improperly maintained machinery and equipment
