Equipment Accidents and Failures

Workers’ compensation laws exist to help employees who are injured on the job, including injuries involving equipment-related failures. Workers’ compensation laws are supposed to protect the interests of employees and save them from unnecessary distress and hassle, but sometimes the help of an experienced North Carolina or South Carolina workers’ compensation lawyer like those at Grimes Teich Anderson are needed to make sure an injured worker gets the compensation and help to which they may be entitled.

Manufacturing has a long and active history in the Carolinas, and while the sector has shrunk in the United States over the years, it is still an important part of the area economy. The equipment used in manufacturing often requires special training for operation, and there are many risks for the employees of corporations which mass produce consumer goods. Entrapment of certain body parts by machinery, crushing impact, contact with sharp edges, hot parts, or live electrical items, entanglement of hair or jewelry, and ejection from factory machines are many of the most common on-site equipment injuries. Employers and their insurers are liable for these injuries of their workers on-the-job. Risk assessments, hazard removal, equipment updates, and continuing job site training for employees are a few of the many ways employers can improve the safety of their workers, and there is no excuse for job site injuries that could be avoided through actions like these. Our workers' compensation lawyers help North Carolina or South Carolina workers assert their rights in these challenging situations.

Depending on whether you were injured on the job in North Carolina or South Carolina, Workers’ Compensation benefits may include: coverage of medical expenses (including but not limited to hospital costs and doctor’s visits, medication, corrective surgeries and therapies, and medical devices); and disability benefits for permanent disability.

If you have been injured by equipment in your line of work, you may be entitled to benefits to cover part or all of your expenses as you recover and rebuild your life. Grimes Teich Anderson LLP’s North Carolina and South Carolina workers' compensation attorneys are experienced in this area of the law and the kinds of cases that may arise from equipment failure. We invite you to call us for a free case evaluation. We can help protect your interests and fight for the benefits to which you may be entitled.

The best way to protect your financial and personal interests is to speak to a qualified attorney. Keep up with every cost from your injury case, do not discuss your situation on social media, and do not settle or make agreements with your company’s insurance representatives without counsel.
