As a personal injury attorney with a focus on injured workers and employees, I represent many individuals who are injured by machine accidents.
Common causes of machine accidents
More often than not, machine accidents are caused by either a lack of guards, barriers, and gates or by the removal of safety devices. These accidents can lead to amputations or even fatal injuries. While employers must do their due diligence by keeping their workers safe, many times the injuries are caused by faulty or incomplete equipment in the workplace.
