Heavy Equipment & Machinery Accidents in Atlanta

Injured? Call Our Atlanta Construction Accident Lawyers

Every year thousands of workers are killed or seriously injured due to heavy machinery accidents on construction sites. This occurs even though many state and federal regulations, as well as industry standards, require companies to implement a wide variety of safety measures.

When you’ve been injured contact Cummings & Middlebrooks, LLC online, or call us at (404) 250-3292.

How Can Filing a Claim Help Me?

Although workers’ compensation benefits aide employees while injured on the job, they are usually not sufficient enough to fully compensate injured workers for all damages and medical bills sustained as a result of their work-related accident.

Under Georgia law, employees cannot sue their employers for damages sustained as a result of a work-related accident. In order to receive reasonable compensation for their injuries, workers must initiate lawsuits against parties other than their employer, such as equipment manufacturers, who may be held responsible when an accident occurs due to a defective piece of equipment.

Damages in addition to workers’ compensation benefits that can be recovered in these lawsuits include pain and suffering, additional lost wages, medical benefits and loss of services for the spouse.
