Did Heavy Equipment Leave You Injured?
The heavy equipment used on construction sites, in factories and at other workplaces can cause serious injuries if it is defective, poorly maintained or improperly used. While workers’ compensation is the first thing that victims of heavy equipment accidents tend to think about, there may be other avenues of compensation available as well.

Most workplace accidents, including those involving heavy equipment, fall under the domain of the Massachusetts Workers’ Compensation Act. This includes cases involving all types of construction equipment accidents and other work equipment accidents such as:
- Crane accidents
- Bulldozer accidents
- Forklift accidents
We step in to make certain that victims get all of the required benefits of workers’ comp, including proper medical treatment and pay for lost wages.
Personal Injury Claims
Workers’ compensation does not provide benefits for pain and suffering, as well as consequential damages. Whenever possible, we will look for other opportunities to pursue compensation. When a heavy equipment accident is caused by a party other than the employer or a co-worker, a personal injury claim can be filed against the negligent party. These are called third-party work accident claims, because they are filed against a third party, such as an equipment manufacturer, a property owner or a contractor working at the same job site under a different employer than the victim.
No Fees Unless You Win
In job accident cases, we charge no fees unless you win. Our fees are based on a reasonable percentage of the compensation we obtain for you.
