People who have to work with industrial equipment for a living are at heightened risk of serious injury compared to the average worker by nature of their jobs. When the equipment they work with is faulty or the safety conditions of their workplaces are less than optimal, the chances of their being injured or killed rise significantly.

Typical Industrial Equipment Accidents and Injuries
Industrial equipment accidents can occur as a result of any number of factors, ranging from product defects to inadequate training of the employees using the equipment. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration provides strict guidelines for safe usage of industrial equipment, and the failure of workplaces to adhere to these guidelines can put workers at unnecessary risk of injury, as well. In industrial equipment injury cases, our personal injury attorneys carefully evaluate the facts of the case to determine which party is responsible for the injury and therefore should be liable for the losses and expenses suffered by the injured worker.
Industrial equipment that is commonly responsible for injury-causing accidents includes:
- Welding machines
- Drill presses
- Grinding machines
- Production packers
- Gear shapers
- Industrial robots
- Cutting tools
- Hot water tanks
- Nail guns
- Circulation pumps
- Pipe threaders
- Scissor lifts
- Industrial dryers
Injuries occurring from industrial equipment accidents can range in severity, but are generally severe enough to interfere with a worker’s ability to earn a living for a significant period of time. Common injuries include:
- Strains, sprains, and other injuries to ligaments and tendons
- Bone fractures and dislocations
- Spinal cord and neck injuries, including possible paralysis
- Cuts, including possible severance of major blood vessels
