Legal Support When You've Been Injured In A Machinery Accident

Industrial Machinery InjuryMost people in the manufacturing industry work with machines every day. Such occupations can be dangerous. A recent report by the New York State Workers' Compensation Board revealed that the industry is responsible for 10.3 percent of all Workers' Compensation claims. Moreover, as machinery-related injuries can occur in many other workplaces, the total number of machinery-related Workers' Compensation claims is actually much higher.

When machinery, tools and equipment cause on-the-job injuries, employees may be eligible for Workers' Compensation benefits. These benefits cover lost wages, medical bills and other expenses. Yet nearly a quarter of initial claims are denied. This makes it critical to have an experienced attorney who focuses on work-related machinery accidents and knows how to obtain restitution.
