Heavy Machinery Accidents
Oil field worker accidents involving heavy equipment or machinery cause some of the most catastrophic injuries, including:
- Serious and sometimes permanent brain damage
- Crushed internal organs
- Fractured bones
- Permanent and total paralysis due to spinal cord injuries
If the worker is fortunate enough to survive, they are often strapped with ongoing medical expenses, loss of current and future wages, not to mention the debilitating emotional impact an accident of this nature has on the individual, and his dependents.
One of the most viable things you can accomplish if you have lost a loved one, or if you have been injured, in an oil field accident involving heavy equipment or machinery is to meet with your ND Heavy Machinery Accident Attorney. You are likely entitled to substantial compensation, and your Traynor Law Firm attorney will compassionately assist you in obtaining the compensation that is rightfully yours.
Liability for Heavy Machinery Malfunctions
When oil field heavy machinery equipment is not maintained properly, and it malfunctions, the outcome can be catastrophic or deadly to oil field workers.
Our role in representing you is to determine how, why, and who. We have experts available to thoroughly investigate each accident scene, and we are committed to our clients receiving fair and just compensation for the loss of a loved one, or for injuries sustained that will likely change the course of their lives.
Traynor Law Firm understands that carelessness or negligence by the employer is not always the cause of your accident; instead, it could be the manufacturer of the equipment, such as an inherent flaw in the design, or possibly both your employer, and the company that manufactured the equipment. Regardless, we will investigate and determine who is responsible, and subsequently liable for you to receive just and fair compensation.
Proper Safety Training When Working Around Heavy Machinery
Due to the sheer size of oil field heavy machinery, it is imperative for all employees to receive proper training to avoid being crushed by, or run over by heavy machinery. Loud noises surrounding the oil field work site make verbal communication difficult, and sometimes impossible, thus, proper hand signal training is critical, in addition, to making sure employees remain alert at all times to what is going on around them.
