In industrial workplaces and on construction sites throughout New York City, workers often depend upon heavy machinery to complete their jobs effectively. This equipment needs to be properly designed and maintained, along with features to preserve user safety. For any worker in an industrial setting, an equipment failure or a machinery accident can be a life-changing event with devastating injuries.
While workers' compensation benefits are designed to compensate employees who are injured on the job, this may not be your only source of financial support after a machinery accident. It may also be possible to file a personal injury claim against negligent building owners and general contractors who are responsible for your accident. At Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, P.C., our lawyers thoroughly review accident cases to pursue all of the benefits and compensation that are available for our clients.
