Representation for Brain Injuries in Industrial Machinery Accidents

Brain injuries occur when the head is hit hard. The brain is jostled within the scull suffering nerve damage as it hits bone. This can occur in sports accidents and car accidents. It can also most definitely occur in industrial machinery accidents be it a driver caught in a Forklift rollover accident or a worker underneath a falling load in a crane accident. When brain injury occurs it is important to get appropriate medical care. It also important to contact a lawyer to seek compensation.

Compensation for Brain Injuries

Workers are of course entitled to Workers' Compensation benefits from these accidents but the benefits are quite modest. For compensation that will truly care for the brain injury victim, it is necessary to maintain a personal injury claim in the courts. This can be done in addition to the Workers' Comp claim. A personal injury claim is normally against third parties other than the employer. Claims against the employer are generally limited to Workers' Comp except when the employer is guilty of intentional misconduct.

The third party claim will often be against a manufacturer for defective machinery. The defect could be in a failure to warn of the danger of lifting the load too high by posting a warning on the crane control panel. Seeing the warning, the crane operator would have lifted the load to the correct height and the load would not have fallen on the worker.

The third party claim may also be against another subcontractor on the work site. Suppose that the worker was employed by Subcontractor A and the crane operator employed by Subcontractor B who neglected to teach the crane operator not to lift loads too high. The worker would now have a claim against Subcontractor B for failure to train.
