Industrial Accidents: Cranes And Heavy Machinery
Engineers and industrial plant managers are well aware of ways to protect workers from injury or death around heavy machinery. Safeguards such as emergency stop switches, industrial floor mats, industrial safety gates, presence-sensing devices and other well-known protective mechanisms are familiar to people who design and supervise industrial workplaces.
If you have suffered an injury or if a loved one died as a result of contact with heavy industrial machinery or in a crane accident at a job site, it is important to ask what the responsible people knew or should have known about dangerous conditions or defects.
Contact Williams, Walsh & O'Connor, LLC, to schedule a free initial consultation regarding your injury associated with an industrial machine such as the following:
- Band saw
- Punching machine
- Shearing machine
An Attorney Should Be Involved In The Investigation From Early On
Immediately after the accident, you and your family are no doubt in a state of shock. While you are in crisis mode, it is hard to know what to do first, second and third. You want to comfort the victim or surviving next of kin. In the case of a construction accident injury, treatment and healing are top priorities. In the case of a fatality, grieving family members must mourn, bury the dead and begin to wrap up financial affairs of the person who died. Meanwhile, the usual business of life continues at full speed: children must be cared for, bills must be paid and arrangements to miss work must be made.
