Using machinery every day is a high risk for major injuries on the job. Serious accidents have occurred for workers on Long Island. From power tools to saws, hammers, heat guns, and high equipment machinery, each of these are hazardous enough to cause a major, potentially fatal injury. With the guidance of our Long Island Workers’ Compensation attorney, you can begin the process to receive Workers’ compensation for your injuries.

Here’s a list of some of the injuries workers have received on the job:

  • Burns
  • Lifting injuries
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Shoulder and neck
  • Hearing and vision loss
  • Construction
  • Illnesses
  • Broken bones
  • Knee
  • Back
  • Regional pain

With heavy equipment, it could be unsafe to use due to the environment, the stability of the worker (s) around you, and other safety factors. There could be negligent workers who cause an injury, bad practices, no follow through on safety procedures, repairs that are needed on equipment, and no safety protection.

The machinery you’re using could be in need of repair and not been placed in the proper channels to begin having the equipment repaired. The injury could also be due to faulty heavy machinery.

We can begin the process for you to receive Workers’ Compensation in Queens and file a claim to receive compensation for your injuries.
