Work Injuries Caused by Malfunctioning Machines & Equipment
Dedicated Orange County Workers' Compensation Lawyers
As technology continues to expand in the United States, more and more businesses are becoming increasingly automated through the use of advanced machines and equipment. Unfortunately, this increased use of machinery in the workplace also comes a heightened risk of injury for operators.
We can help workers who have been injured in any type of machine-related accident, including:
- Crane accidents
- Backhoe accidents
- Loader accidents
- Conveyor belt defects
- Drill press accidents
- Safety guards
- Defective switch accidents
Common Causes of Machine Injuries

- Operator error
- Improper maintenance
- Manufacturing defects
- Poor training
- Lack of supervision
- Violation of safety codes
Whatever the specific causes of your malfunctioning machine injury, worker's compensation is designed to compensate you for medical bills and lost earnings, regardless of who was at fault. Whether you have suffered amputated limbs, broken bones, scarring, disfigurement, brain damage, or another type of injury, we work hard to help you recover the benefits you need.
Representing Injured Workers Since 2005
Since 2005, our firm has been fighting for the rights of workers who have been injured while performing their job functions. We understand how difficult it can be when you are not able to work and have medical expenses piling up that need to be paid. While employees are entitled to receive benefits to pay for their medical expenses and a portion of their lost wages, claims are all too frequently denied for minor errors and inaccuracy. This makes it essential to have a knowledgeable Orange County workers' compensation lawyer at your side who knows how to effectively pursue compensation for workers injured due to malfunctioning machines or equipment.
