Workers’ Compensation is Not Your Only Option

Many believe, incorrectly, that workers’ compensation is their only option after a heavy equipment accident at work. While your accident may be eligible for workers’ compensation, workers may often pursue other options.

This can inlcude taking action against the manufacturer or distributor of defective equipment or a third party that owned the machine or failed to maintain it properly.
