For the purpose of workers’ compensation, the employer doesn’t have to be at fault for you to receive benefits. The benefits you receive may include paid medical care, income benefits and disability compensation.
Legal Issues in Machinery Accident Claims
Machinery accident injuries are often serious. Heavy equipment can weigh many tons. It can cause severe damage when there is even a small problem or mistake.
Injuries that are common in machinery accident claims include:
- Organ damage
- Loss of blood
- Traumatic brain injury
- Fractures, broken bones
- PTSD, anxiety, other mental health injuries
For serious injuries, getting the correct workers’ compensation benefits is especially important. The insurance company may try to deny needed medical care. They may downplay the treatment that you need or try to end your medical care before you have reached maximum levels of improvement.
With the help of a Greenville machinery accident lawyer, you can challenge the insurance company and pursue the medical and financial benefits you deserve. You have the right to a hearing, but you must request it. A lawyer can help you build the evidence you need, present your case and negotiate your settlement.
Third-party compensation claims
In addition to workers’ compensation, you may qualify to bring a traditional civil claim for financial relief. Workers’ compensation comes from the employer and their insurance coverage. However, when it comes to heavy machinery, there are a number of other parties that may be involved, including manufacturers, rental companies, repair services, contractors, and part manufacturers. These parties may be liable for defective products or negligence.
If you qualify to bring a claim against these parties, it may be advantageous. However, it’s critical to work with an experienced lawyer if you intend to claim both workers’ compensation and third-party liability. Lawyer Bobby Jones can assist you in looking at the entire picture and pursuing the right course of action for your situation.
