Heavy Equipment Accidents Can Be Catastrophic
Operators and nearby workers are at risk for serious injury from heavy equipment and farm equipment. On construction sites, contact with equipment is the third leading cause of construction site fatalities, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Determining liability for accidents involving heavy equipment can be challenging, and is a job for an experienced lawyer. At Domnitz & Skemp, S.C., our attorneys have more than 70 years of combined experience. We will investigate the accident and work out the liability, holding all negligent third parties accountable for their actions.

Get All of the Compensation You Are Entitled to Receive
We represent injured workers in personal injury suits against negligent third parties. While most workers are eligible for workers' compensation benefits, you may also be able to collect damages from third parties. People who work on farms should speak with an attorney about potential sources of compensation for their injuries.
Some of the most dangerous workplace equipment includes:
- Heavy equipment — cranes, excavators, dump trucks and bulldozers
- Farm equipment — balers, corn pickers, grain augers, tractors and combines
- Industrial and warehouse equipment — forklifts, printing presses and binders
Accidents and injuries may occur because of operator error, inadequate safety procedures or equipment defects. Workers may suffer injuries such as amputations, crush syndrome, back and spinal injuries, entrapment and suffocation, electric shock and burns. Any of these injuries may cause permanent disability, disfigurement or wrongful death.
