Workers' Compensation Lawyers in Wake County for Equipment Caused Injuries

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly 3 million non-fatal workplace injuries are reported by private employers in the United States every year. This number does not include those who are killed on the job, which often exceeds 5,000 workers annually. Research also shows that manufacturing and construction are two of the most dangerous industries in which a person can work, with injury rates among the highest for any occupation.

At the Vasquez Law Firm, PLLC, we understand that industrial accident victims often struggle to collect the compensation they need to put their lives back on track. If you have been injured while working with heavy or specialized equipment in a factory, manufacturing plant, or another industrial setting, you may be entitled to benefits under the North Carolina workers' compensation system. Unfortunately, collecting such benefits is often challenging due to uncooperative employers and stubborn insurance carriers. The good news is that we can help. Our accomplished workers' compensation lawyers have secured favorable results for many clients who were injured at work, and we are ready to put our experience on your side.

Helping Injured Industrial Workers in Charlotte and Smithfield

Those who work in industrial environments face a variety of dangers on any given day. They are often surrounded by massive pieces of heavy equipment, electricity, toxic chemicals, and other hazardous conditions. While local, state, and federal regulations are intended to protect workers, equipment-related accidents and injuries still occur on an alarmingly regular basis. Tragically, many such accidents are preventable and have an identifiable cause.

At the Vasquez Law Firm, PLLC, our skilled attorneys recognize that a comprehensive investigation is often critical in securing full workers' comp benefits for injured machine operators, welders, metalworkers, and other industrial laborers. Industrial accidents may be the result of:

  • Defective industrial equipment;
  • Ladders and scaffolding that were poorly designed or negligently maintained;
  • Corrosion caused by exposure to harmful chemicals;
  • Worn-out machine parts; and
  • Fatigued and overworked personnel.

According to the North Carolina Workers' Compensation Act, workers' compensation benefits are not supposed to depend on proving fault or direct liability for your equipment-related injuries. If your injuries occurred in the course of you doing your job, you are entitled to collect benefits for your medical expenses, lost wages, vocational retraining, and temporary or permanent disability. Sometimes, however, your employer or the workers' compensation insurance carrier may dispute the extent of your injuries or attempt to claim that your injury was not related to your job. Our team will work hard to help you overcome any challenges that may arise so that you can obtain the full benefits available to you under the law.
