Machinery Accidents

Heavy machinery is an essential part of many manufacturing jobs. However, the safety of workers is jeopardized when:

  • Workers are not trained on proper use of the machinery.
  • Safety standards for the machines are ignored.
  • The machinery is not properly maintained.

If you suffered serious injuries in a machinery accident at your manufacturing job, our experienced lawyers can help you receive the workers' compensation benefits you need and deserve. At Eley Law Firm, we have been helping injured workers in Denver receive the benefits they need for more than 30 years.

Fair Compensation For Life-Changing Manufacturing Accidents

The injuries caused by machinery accidents are often permanent, if not fatal. Workers who will never be able to return to their previous positions because of industrial accidents need to be compensated fairly. This includes compensation for their medical bills, lost wages and future lost wages.

We know that Colorado's workers' compensation system is complicated, and receiving the benefits you need can be frustrating, if not impossible, without the support of an experienced lawyer. We represent individuals whose injuries were caused by accidents involving heavy machinery, including:

  • Backhoes
  • Bulldozers
  • Caterpillars
  • Cranes
  • Drill presses
  • Dump trucks
  • Excavators
  • Forklifts
  • Graders
  • Grapple trucks
  • Grinders
  • Punch presses
  • Track skidders
  • Trenchers
  • Trucks

Causes Of Machinery Accidents In Manufacturing

Because of its size and the power of its moving parts, heavy machinery is inherently dangerous. However, poor maintenance, inadequate training or careless operation can put all the workers in danger.

Missing safety guards, inaccessible or faulty shut-off switches, obstructed lines of site, poor maintenance, incomplete training — any of these can lead to serious or fatal injuries, and they are all the result of negligence.
