NYC Equipment Operator Injury Lawyers

Operating heavy equipment is a highly-skilled job that can lead to extremely serious accidents – especially when important safety protocols aren't adhered to strictly. If you've been injured in the course of your work as an equipment operator, you need the professional legal counsel of an experienced construction accident attorney on your side.

Accident Involving Equipment

Equipment operator injuries typically happen on the job, and they are most common to the construction industry. Workers’ compensation law precludes you from suing your employer or coworker directly – in such instances, you are required to negotiate your case through your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. If, on the other hand, a third-party either played a role in or directly caused your equipment operator accident, you can file a claim against this at-fault party. If, for example, the heavy equipment that left you injured was faultily designed and/or produced, the manufacturer could be found liable. Whatever your situation, however, working closely with an experienced construction accident attorney is in the best interest of your case.
