Machinery Accident Attorneys Serving Clients Nationwide
Injured on the Job in Houston or Beyond?
Construction work is a high-risk occupation. Even situations that seem safe can become hazardous or even deadly due to machinery malfunction or oversights. If you have been wounded in a machinery accident, you may be capable of receiving help beyond workers' compensation. Our award-winning Houston machinery accident lawyers have a breadth of experience in personal injury cases and can guide you to the next step in your claim.
Seek Compensation for Industrial Negligence
While your employer may be liable for failing to train you properly on the use of machinery, third parties can also be responsible for damages due to poor design. For example, if a machine malfunctions, the manufacturing company could be liable for your injury. Similarly, third parties can face a lawsuit for safety hazards they could have prevented with proper warning or by ensuring proper measures were in place.
Any number of machinery malfunctions can lead to a viable claim, these include complications that arise while operating:
- Drill Presses
- Electric Saws
- Cement Trucks
Of course, any machine you work on could prove hazardous. Construction accidents often occur as a result of faulty manufacturing or other oversights. Contact our machinery injury attorneys for a consultation if you have been injured while performing your job, and we can help you seek adequate compensation.
