You May Seek Additional Compensation in Machinery Accident Cases
Workplace injuries have numerous causes, but machinery accidents are particularly common. They can also be especially devastating, resulting in catastrophic injuries such as amputations, electrical shock and burns, suffocation, crush injuries and brain injuries.
Injured workers are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, but in machinery accident cases, they may also have a separate personal injury claim against a third party such as the manufacturer or distributor of the machinery. It’s important to discuss your case with an experienced work injury lawyer to find out if you can seek additional compensation, including damages for pain and suffering.
