Phoenix Machinery Accident Lawyers
Construction workers often are exposed to dangerous and heavy machinery. Depending on a person's job and the size of a job site, this could happen on a daily basis, or even more frequently. It comes as no surprise then that machinery accidents occur too often on construction sites. These huge machines can cause catastrophic and even fatal injuries to workers. Injuries from machinery can affect the quality of a person's life, his or her health, or even the financial stability of a family. What you will find below is information on machinery accidents and a worker's rights concerning them.
Accidents involving machinery come in many forms. Common machinery accidents include loader accidents, crane accidents, as well as accidents with skid steers, back loaders, bulldozers, etc. These machinery accidents do not even include the accidents caused by tools. Though they vary widely, the effects of a machinery accident can cause many of the same injuries that affect the limbs, face, head, and other parts of the body. Broken bones, cuts, scrapes, amputations, paralysis, traumatic brain injury, disfigurement, and other terrible injuries can occur on a construction job site due to machinery.
Though machinery accidents often happen accidentally, they can also be caused by the negligent actions of individuals who lack the training or common sense to use machinery and tools correctly. Sometimes this negligence results in an injury. There may be other factors involved as well, such as fatigue, drug use, or alcohol use that lead to a mistake resulting in a machinery related injury. These can impact a person's life forever and can impair a worker's ability to perform normal job functions. A moment's carelessness while operating heavy machinery can cause a lifelong disability.

Too often, those who are hurt on a job site only seek workers' compensation and in so doing fail to get the compensation they may be legally entitled to. There are cases when someone other than a person's employer may be at fault, and in cases like these, going after additional compensation in an Arizona machinery accident case may be justified.
