Machine and Tool Injuries

Nashville Machine and Tool Injury Attorney

After a workplace injury that occurred in connection with the use of a machine or tool, it is very important to inspect the machine or tool as soon after the accident as possible. Was the machine or tool defective? If so, whose negligence made it defective? Ask an injury law attorney how to get the machine or tool in question tested. What was the true cause of your injury in connection with a:

  • Tool and die machine
  • Press
  • Mold
  • Factory conveyor belt

Is There Another Avenue Toward Compensation Beyond Workers' Comp Benefits?

While you most likely have a workers' compensation claim after being injured on the job, you should recognize the limitations of workers' comp benefits. If there is another avenue to follow to pursue additional compensation, you should explore that avenue right away. Will the maximum weekly payment, even if you are totally disabled, be enough to maintain your lifestyle and meet your financial challenges? A third-party liability claim may offer the additional financial cushion that you need to live comfortably despite your disability caused by a workplace accident.

Who Was Negligent When The Machine Or Tool Was Defective?

An experienced injury law attorney can help determine whether you have cause for a third-party liability claim in addition to your workers' compensation claim. A successful third-party liability claim will hold responsible a person or company other than your employer, such as a machine or tool manufacturer or repair facility. A subcontractor may be responsible if he or she damaged or altered the machine or tool before you used it and were injured by it. Did another worker remove a safety guard? Did maintenance personnel fail to put a machine or tool back together properly after taking it apart for servicing?
