Injuries on Machines Can Be Serious
Have you or someone you know been seriously injured while using or operating a machine? At Worby Groner Edelman, we have handled hundreds of cases where our clients were injured while using a machine. In one case, an 18 year old machine worker lost several fingers when operating a cutting machine. It was his job to place a copper cylinder onto the top of the machine and a cutter would come down and cut a hole in the copper. Unfortunately, there was no guard on the machine and the client's hand was too close to the operating parts. Although the insurance company for the machine manufacturer said that the accident was the fault of the client, we retained an expert on machinery who was able to testify that there should have been a guard incorporated on the cutting machine to stop the machine if the operator's hand was too close. While our 18 year old client suffered the loss of several fingers, his case settled for a substantial amount of money. If you or a loved one have been injured by a machine or other job related accidents, call Worby Groner Edelman for a consultation. We will answer any questions you have and remember, there is never a fee unless we are successful!
