Heavy Machinery Accidents

Serving Injury Victims Across Upstate New York Including Syracuse and Rochester

Construction work often involves heavy machinery and dangerous equipment. Despite the extensive training requirements and safety measures in place, working with such massive and powerful equipment is inherently hazardous.

The danger posed by heavy machinery and equipment cannot be overstated. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recognizes these types of accidents — specifically, those in which a worker gets caught in between or struck by heavy equipment — as one of the "fatal four" leading causes of death in the construction injury.
