Human Error with Heavy Equipment Can't Be Undone.

When things go wrong in earth-moving equipment and heavy machinery, life and limb is at stake. Our experienced attorneys can help you recover after a loss.


Heavy machinery has allowed us to do monumental tasks more efficiently and cost-effectively than ever before. However, because these machines are so massive and, in many cases, difficult to operate, accidents happen fairly frequently. In fact, some estimates say that up to 100,000 injuries each year are caused by either unsafe or improper operation of heavy machinery.  Causes of heavy machinery accidents may include, but are not limited to:

  • Colliding with a stationary object
  • Backing up into or over someone
  • Colliding with another piece of equipment
  • Dropped loads
  • Machinery entanglement
  • Failure to check blind spots
  • Objects falling from forklifts and other equipment
  • Pinning workers between equipment and stationary objects

Heavy machinery types that can lead to serious injuries include, but are not limited to:

  • Large Trucks
  • Cranes
  • Diggers
  • Earth-movers
  • Forklifts
  • Winches

A heavy machinery injury can have a serious impact on your life, and your ability to work. When an injury does happen, you may have to deal with repeating hospital and doctor visits. If the injury is serious enough, missing work and even the threat of job loss are real possibilities. This is happening while insurance companies work to minimize the compensation they pay out. Our team of heavy machinery injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb, P.A. understand your legal rights and are not only committed to getting you the maximum amount of compensation possible, but helping you recover from your injuries, so your life can get back to normal as soon as possible.

Heavy Machinery Injury Case Types

We meet clients who have had many different types of heavy machinery injuries. Sometimes we help people who have had a large machine topple over on them during a rollover. Another common scenario is when a crane or other heavy machine crumples to the ground, crushing or trapping workers underneath it. Workers may also be run over or pinned underneath heavy machinery.

Liability & Damage Recovery

When a person or company runs a business, they have a responsibility to keep their workplaces safe for employees and customers alike. If the failures of your employer or another person or business have caused you a heavy machinery injury, they are then liable for bodily injury that takes place as a result of their negligence. If you or a loved one have suffered a heavy machinery injury, the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb, P.A. may be able to help you get the compensation that you are entitled to. Heavy machinery personal injury compensation may include:

  • Hospital & Medical Bills
  • Lost Wages
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Cost of Future Care

Some people think they can just wait for the insurance company to call with an offer. Unfortunately, this is not a good idea. Insurance agents and adjusters work on behalf of the insurance company and their job is to pay out as little as possible, no matter how critically you or your loved one were injured. It’s essential that you never agree to or accept a settlement offer from an insurance company without first consulting an experienced negligent security personal injury attorney.
