Heavy Equipment & Trucking

Whether you use a checklist or complete a form, you are required to conduct a pre-operational equipment inspection before your shift. You are supposed to report unsafe equipment or conditions. Your supervisor should then make the piece of equipment safe or red-tag it and take it out of service until it is safe.

Holding Employers Responsible For Unsafe Conditions

The inspection process is meant to help ensure safe operating conditions. However, our legal team has extensive experience representing workers injured due to unsafe conditions or equipment. We are committed to holding West Virginia companies and industries responsible for failing to follow safety rules that result in bodily harm.

Equipment-Dependent Industries

Heavy equipment is necessary for most industries — especially in West Virginia. Odds are you come in contact directly or indirectly with heavy machinery if you earn your living in:

These industries use many hazardous pieces of equipment, including:

  • Bulldozers
  • Inloaders
  • Rock trucks
  • Scrapers
  • Excavators

Our law firm has extensive experience handling heavy equipment accident cases. We understand how trucks used in our region can be 15 feet off the ground, creating falling hazards. While the tires for such trucks are under so much pressure that changing them can cause fatalities. We can evaluate your workplace accident to determine who was at fault so you can pursue suitable compensation for your injuries.

We provide representation for individuals injured as the result of truck driver negligence. We can evaluate your trucking accident to determine if the driver was compliant with state and federal regulations.
