Advocates For Victims Of Heavy Machinery Injuries

Heavy machinery can make it possible for a few humans to construct or repair large structures such as buildings and highways. The close proximity of people and heavy machinery, as well as hurried production deadlines and the difficult working conditions, often lead to accidental injuries. Catastrophic injuries and fatalities are common results of workplace accidents involving heavy machinery.

After a serious injury on the job, you should consult with a workers' compensation lawyer. The Law Offices of James L. O'Rourke represents injured workers in workers' compensation claims and appeals. At the same time, we evaluate every serious workplace accident for possible third-party liability claims.

If you can demonstrate that a third party — that is, not your employer — was negligent, causing or contributing to your heavy machinery accident, you may be eligible to collect compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit.

Examples of machinery that sometimes causes serious accidents include:

  • Construction machines such as backhoes, excavators, cranes, dumpers, scrapers, compactors, bulldozers, hydraulic shovels, wheel rollers and Bobcat-type machines
  • Harvesters and other farm machinery
  • Pneumatic compactors
  • Boilers
  • Pavers

We can get your workers' compensation case on the path to completion. We can also help evaluate your case and initiate an investigation into the circumstances behind your accident. If we represent you, our goal will be nothing less than maximum available compensation for you.
