Do You Work With Dangerous Machinery?

Workers’ Compensation Will Cover Your Injuries

Jobs that involve machines or power tools are inherently risky. If the machines are damaged or safety procedures are not followed, the risk for injury increases. Regardless of the reasons for machinery accidents, injured workers are entitled to workers’ compensation.

Our attorneys have seen the damage caused by machinery accidents. We represent injured New York workers in workers’ compensation cases. Sher, Herman, Bellone & Tipograph has a 70-year history of helping injured workers get the workers’ compensation benefits they need. We are dedicated solely to workers’ compensation and related Social Security Disability Insurance cases. You can rely on our experienced lawyers to treat you with respect and care as we work to get the medical and financial benefits you need while you recover.

Serious Injuries May Prevent You From Returning to Work

We can represent people injured by any type of machinery, including:

  • Cranes
  • Bulldozers
  • Backhoes
  • Excavators and trenchers
  • Loaders
  • Drill presses
  • Power tools
  • Injection molds
  • Forklifts
  • Conveyor belts and assembly lines

Injuries caused by machinery and tool accidents can be very serious. Amputations, burns, electric shock, broken bones, crush injuries, brain injuries and spinal cord injuries are common in these types of cases. The most severe accidents can result in permanent disability or death.

Receiving sufficient workers’ compensation benefits is a critical part of a worker’s recovery. We will fight your employer and its insurance carrier if they deny or undervalue your claim. Because we focus exclusively on worker injury cases, we have extensive knowledge of New York workers’ compensation law. If we need to appeal a denied claim or represent you at hearings, you can be sure our attorneys are thoroughly prepared to protect your rights throughout the process.
