Heavy Equipment


Construction, utility, and factory work in Massachusetts often involves many different types of heavy machinery, including dump trucks, graders, bulldozers, compactors, excavators, pavers, and tractors. If improperly used or maintained, these types of heavy equipment can be extremely dangerous and can cause severe heavy machinery accidents, resulting in injuries ranging from compound fractures and spinal cord injuries, to large-scale organ damage and burn injuries.

Due to their nature and severity, these injuries can cause long-term disabilities, substantial financial losses, and even death. In circumstances where an accident involving heavy equipment was caused by negligence, you need experienced attorneys who can prosecute those responsible.

While workers’ compensation benefits are important to consider when a heavy equipment injury occurs, there are other avenues of compensation available. Legal actions against responsible third parties allow victims and their families to recover damages and losses that workers’ compensation claims do not cover. These damages include pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and disability in performing regular activities of daily living. Other family losses, including loss of services and consortium, can be pursued against responsible third parties.
