Construction sites, oil rigs, factories, and other industrial facilities
use heavy machinery for a wide range of jobs. Although this equipment
is considered safe when handled and transported properly, improper use,
defects, or lack of safety can result in devastating accidents.
If you have been injured by heavy machinery in Texas, the
Law Office of James M. Stanley is committed to helping you make the best recovery possible. Our Fort Worth
personal injury lawyers understand what it takes to obtain compensation to cover medical
expenses, lost wages, and even pain and suffering.
Maximizing Your Compensation
In the event of a
construction accident involving heavy equipment, you may be eligible to obtain workers’
compensation benefits, no matter who was at fault. While you are able
to recover compensation for medical expenses and lost earnings, you are
not allowed to recover noneconomic damages such as emotional distress
or pain and suffering.
However, there are many cases where the accident was caused by a faulty
design or a defective component, or the company who owned the machinery
failed to conduct proper maintenance. In the event an injury is caused
by one of these reasons, you may be eligible to file a personal injury
lawsuit against a third party to obtain additional compensation on top
of workers’ comp benefits.
Common types of machinery include:
- Oil rig machinery
- Logging equipment
- Hydraulic machinery
