Machine Injuries

Workplace injuries may be the result of negligence by another company's employee, or even by your own employer's removal of a guard or safety device. Ohio workplace accidents are also sometimes caused by defective machines, the result of product defects, design defects, negligent installation or negligent maintenance. Boiler explosions may also cause serious injury or even wrongful death. If you have been injured by defective machinery or equipment, by a missing safety device or a guard, you may want to retain a Cleveland machine injury lawyer to collect damages from the manufacturer, a third party, or in the case of a workplace intentional tort, your own employer.

Rubin Guttman & Associates, L.P.A., provides representation to injured people in Ohio, including those injured by machinery defects. Whether you were injured by equipment or a machine at work, our lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve. Please contact a machine injury attorney at our Cleveland firm to learn how we may be able to help you.

Injured by Hazardous Machinery?

Industrial machines, heavy equipment, power tools and appliances — any machine with moving parts has the potential to cause serious injuries or disability. Machines are supposed to have guards that prevent people from being injured by moving parts as well as from contact with electrical current. Machines such as construction cranes, backhoes, earth movers and the like must be operated with great caution or someone may be killed or maimed. Some of the most common results of machine accidents include:

  • Wrongful death
  • Crushed limbs, hands or fingers
  • Amputations
  • Electric shock and electrical burns

Injuries may be the result of unguarded machines, missing safety guards, wear and tear, poor supervision, lack of training, machine defects or negligent operation. Our Cleveland machine injury attorneys will seek compensation from all responsible parties for damages, including past and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and related expenses. In wrongful death cases, we will also seek compensation for one's funeral expenses, the loss of a loved one's consortium and society, and loss of income, as well as conscious pain and suffering.

I had occasion to use Rubin Guttman's services, in connection with obtaining coverage from a well-known life insurance company, that ended with a completely satisfactory outcome for me. I cannot rave enough about the professionalism and quality of the service which I received from Rubin. They were as good or better as any of the major law firms NITA whom I have had previous experience. Jerry Rothchild
