Machinery Accident Workers’ Compensation Lawyers
Our Attorneys Build Strong Cases That Get Results for the Injured
There are many different types of machinery used on construction sites. An accident can happen on the job that leaves workers with serious injuries. These workers are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, but the system can be difficult to navigate. The experienced machinery accident attorneys at Shebell & Shebell, LLC help them get the benefits they deserve. Our offices are located in Shrewsbury and Newark, NJ.
The types of machinery that can be seen at construction sites include:
- Pneumatic nail guns
- Power sanders
- Concrete grinders
- Circular saws
- Power drills
- Pressure washers
Some of these machines may be powered by generators or air compressors. Depending on the situation, workers can be hurt in many ways. They may suffer broken bones, head injuries, back injuries, neck injuries, or crushed hands, fingers, or limbs. In some cases, they may suffer concussions, electrical burns, internal hemorrhaging, organ damage and nerve damage. In more serious cases, they can suffer spinal cord injuries or amputation.
Machinery Accident Lawyers Who Fight For The Rights Of The Injured
A workplace accident can leave a construction worker unable to do the job for months or longer. They may need surgery and physical therapy. They may be on medication and face months of follow-up visits to doctors. The medical expenses can become overwhelming. There is less income coming in, because they can’t work.
The state’s workers’ compensation system is supposed to pay the cost of all necessary and reasonable medical treatment. In addition, employees who are out of work for longer than seven days are eligible to receive partial wages. It sounds simple, but the process of getting the benefits you deserve can get very complicated.
The reason is that employers and insurance companies routinely try to minimize claims. Insurance companies want to save money, so they look for ways to pay less. They question the extent of injuries or the need for certain kinds of treatment. They pressure workers to return to the job while they are still recovering.
