Heavy Machinery/Forklift Accidents

Accidents With Heavy Machinery Are Common

Some of the most serious work-related injuries in North Carolina are those involving heavy machinery. This can include anything from forklift and crane accidents to unloading and loading trucks with heavy equipment. It is important that you seek a workers’ compensation attorney in North Carolina who can help you seek the benefits that you are owed.

The workers’ compensation insurance carrier that covers your employer is not looking out for your best interests. Insurance companies will often do everything that they can to minimize coverage. That is why it is so crucial that you have an attorney fighting for your best interests and seeking full and fair coverage on your behalf.
