Injured by Hazardous Machinery? Call (925) 254-1234
Complex machinery is a critical part of our daily life - even if we aren't aware of it. From the moment we wake up, till the second we put our head down to sleep, machines play an integral part in modern life. In many instances our jobs require us to work with or be in close proximity to these complicated pieces of hardware. Whether you work in an industrial setting, a shipping and receiving center, or a manufacturing plant, there is a good chance you work with a complex machine. Unfortunately, this also means you are at greater risk of becoming injured, sometimes critically. Damage from machinery often include:
- Loss of limbs or digits
- Severe lacerations or abrasions
- Compound and simple fractures
- Intense burns from flame, steam or electricity
- Critical damage to the head, neck or spinal cord
If you've been injured because of a malfunctioning or poorly maintained piece of machinery, you may be eligible to take legal action against the at-fault party. But you will need experienced representation to help you see it through. Contact Balamuth Law today and get the advice and counsel you need. Over the years, we have represented victims of machine injury and we know what it takes to hold the negligent owner, operator or maintenance crew accountable for their oversight. Contact us today to review your options and discuss your rights in a free case consultation. With our representation, you could collect damages from one or more of the following:
- Emergency medical care
- Numerous doctor visits
- Permanent disability
- Long-term therapy
- Loss of wages
But don't delay. Under California law you have a limited window of opportunity in which to file your claim. This is known as the statute of limitations and it impacts every civil suit in the state. If you fail to submit your claim by the deadline you could forfeit your right to compensation. Don't let this opportunity go by. Call our office today and schedule an appointment to speak with our personal injury team. Dial (925) 254-1234 or submit your information using the form found on this page and a representative will be with you shortly.
How Could This Happen?
As mentioned previously, many of the machines found in industrial zones and places of business are quite complex. They require significant upkeep, maintenance and safety procedures. Failure in any one of these categories can lead to catastrophic, if not deadly results. More often than not, injuries in such circumstances occur because of:
- A lack of a physical barrier or shield between a "point of operation" and fast moving parts;
- Lack of safety and kill switches to stop the machine once an incident has occurred;
- Or failure by maintenance crews to keep the machine in safe working condition.
