Work-Related Machine And Equipment Injuries
Certain jobs carry certain levels of risk. Jobsites and workplaces that have heavy machinery and equipment require more vigilance in ensuring safety. Operators must be properly trained and, in some cases, certified in using the equipment. Yet, despite in-depth training by employers and precautions taken by workers, accidents happen that lead to serious injuries.
Skibiel Law has protected the rights of hardworking Jonesboro and Atlanta residents injured on the job. For 25 years, our founder has combined experience and legal knowledge in workers’ compensation claims with dedication and diligence in maximizing compensation.
Pursuing Maximum Compensation When Injuries And Death Occur On The Job
Specific work-related accidents have been caused by:
- Operator error
- Improper training
- Defective heavy machinery and equipment
- Lack of heavy equipment and machinery maintenance or inspection
- Collisions, specifically those involving forklifts
- Improper loading
- Dangerous or poor weather conditions at a work site
Construction sites, industrial environments and warehouses are often the scenes for a wide range of broken bones, back and neck injuries, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries. Fatalities have also occurred, leaving family members without a loved one who is also their primary wage earner.
As part of his practice in pursuing maximum workers’ compensation benefits for Georgia residents, attorney Mark A. Skibiel conducts in-depth investigations as to the cause of the accident. Many cases uncover negligence involving design and manufacturing defects in cranes, forklifts, excavators and bulldozers. In these cases, we pursue not only workers’ comp benefits, but also third-party personal injury claims.
