Arlington Heavy Equipment Accident Attorney
According to the most recent United States Bureau of Labor statistics, over 4,500 people are killed on the job site each year in America. Of these deaths, many are caused by heavy equipment such as cranes and forklifts.
When these dangerous machines cause wrongful death, surviving families should know that they have rights under the law. They have the right to file wrongful death claims in Texas and federal courts. At the Jim Ross Law Group, P.C., we can help. Our lawyers represent people who have been injured or killed in workplace accidents caused by heavy equipment.
We handle cases involving many different types of heavy equipment, including:
- Paving, surfacing and tamping equipment
- Pile drivers
- Back hoes
- Track hoes
- Other construction equipment
Many people believe that pursuing workers’ compensation is the only course of action after a heavy equipment accident at work. This is simply not true. Even though many construction accidents or industrial accidents lead to eligibility for workers’ comp, workers may often pursue other options.
Sometimes this means taking action against the manufacturer or distributor of defective equipment. Other times, this means taking action against a third party that owned the machine or failed to maintain it properly.
