One of New York's Premier Personal Injury Law Firms 
Heavy Machinery Accidents

Injured in an Accident Involving Heavy Machinery?

Road construction, building construction projects and hazardous workplaces such as factories are common scenes of accidental injuries involving heavy machinery. Investigation into an accidental injury or death involving heavy machinery will include evaluation of the integrity of the equipment as well as its use.

Who Is Responsible for Your Accident?

After you or a family member was injured by heavy equipment, we can begin investigating who the manufacturer was, who the installer was, who was responsible for maintaining the equipment and who was responsible for supervising the environment where the equipment was in use.

Our Manhattan personal injury law firm is prepared to take on challenging advocacy work for people injured through the presence or use of:

  • Bulldozers
  • Graders
  • Excavators
  • Pipe layers
  • Drill presses
  • Pavers
  • Compactors
  • Gas engine pumps
  • Automated equipment
  • Steam generators

Your heavy machinery accident may have occurred at the John F. Kennedy International Airport, on a ship or in a food processing facility. It may have occurred in the mechanical room of an apartment building or on site at a subway station construction project. Whatever the circumstances and whatever the injuries, this type of accident calls for an experienced, accomplished law firm such as Paris & Chaikin, PLLC.
