Faulty Machinery Or Machinery Misuse

On industrial and construction sites, injuries can come from many sources. One of the most common causes of workplace accidents involves misuse of machinery or fault machinery. While heavy machinery enables efficient and large-scale production of goods and construction, even experienced machinists are at risk of serious injury when a machine malfunctions. These accidents can lead to serious and life-changing injuries and even death.

If you have been injured on the job in an accident involving heavy machinery or power tools, you are likely entitled to workers’ compensation benefits to cover your medical expenses and help with lost wages. The Florida workers’ compensation system is notoriously complex, however. An experienced Florida workers’ compensation lawyer at WorkInjuryRights.Com™ can help by handling your claim, safeguarding your legal rights, and fighting for the benefits you need if your claim is denied or delayed.

Faulty Machinery Injuries

Workplace machinery accidents are often responsible for serious and even catastrophic injuries as well as wrongful death. The type and severity of injury depends on the type of machinery, personal protective equipment, and other factors but many Florida workers hurt by faulty machinery suffer injuries such as:

  • Loss of limb through avulsion (when a limb is torn off), guillotine, or crush amputation
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Crushed fingers, hands, or limbs
  • Lacerations and punctures
  • Fractures
  • Electrical burns

These injuries aren’t just painful and expensive to treat; they can also cause permanent disability, psychological trauma, chronic pain, and reduced quality of life. Workers’ compensation offers benefits for long-term or permanent disability but successfully proving your claim can be challenging. Insurance companies fight these claims with tactics like limited choice in the initial physician who assesses the injury, very restrictive laws governing what they owe you after you are hurt, and adjusters who represent their interests.

An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer in Florida can help you navigate the complex legal landscape, negotiate with the insurance company, and help you prove your claim to seek the benefits you deserve.
