Are you at risk of crushing injuries on the job?

Crushing injuries on construction sites are some of the most deadly and life-altering. These injuries occur when a worker's body or body parts get caught between two objects. Sometimes, a crushing injury happens when a crane loses its load and it falls onto the unfortunate workers toiling beneath it.

As you can imagine, injuries of this type are frequently fatal. Even when they are not, the chances are good that life as the injured worker knew it has irrevocably changed.

One way that crushing injuries involving machinery occur is when the machinery malfunctions and the worker removes the guard to troubleshoot the problem. If it suddenly restarts, the worker's body parts can wind up crushed in the machine.

This can also happen through no fault of the injured worker when the guarding is damaged or missing. Flouting safety rules like leaving shirt-tails untucked or wearing long hair down and not pinned up can cause construction workers to getting pulled into the gears of a machine and getting crushed.

Crushing injuries can also be caused by heavy equipment like the following:

  • Graders
  • Payloaders
  • Bulldozers
  • Earth movers
  • Steamrollers

Even smaller equipment like forklifts can be incredibly dangerous and pin hapless workers if they tip over.

If you are working on a construction site here in Brooklyn and get crushed by machinery on the job, your injuries could be so extensive that you are never going to be able to work in the construction industry again. It is very important to explore all of your legal options for seeking compensation for your injuries, damages and losses.
