Injuries Commonly Sustained in Machinery Accidents
There are a wide variety of situations that may result in a machinery accident. When they happen, they have the potential to be extremely severe, and injuries can lead to extended time off of work and, in extreme cases, permanent disability or death.
Machinery accidents often result from:
- Defective parts and products
- Malfunctioning devices
- Error on the part of the operator
- Improper training
- Failing to adhere to safety rules and guidelines
- Unreasonable work schedules that result in operator fatigue
- Negligence on the part of the employer or manufacturer
With so much at stake, it’s important to act quickly when an accident occurs and secure an experienced lawyer to protect your best interests.
