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 heavy machinery accident 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:

  • Cranes
  • Bulldozers
  • Forklifts
  • Oil rig machinery
  • Trucks
  • Excavators
  • Caterpillars
  • Logging equipment
  • Hydraulic machinery
  • Graders
