Machine Amputations

Connecticut Amputation Lawyers – Kocian Law Group

You deserve to work in a safe workplace.  Through training and safety equipment, a safe work environment prevents amputations caused by machinery.  Losing a limb in a machine amputation will affect you and your family for the rest of your life. If unsafe conditions caused you to lose a limb or digit in a machine, you are entitled to just compensation.

Of course, no amount of money can make up for the permanent loss of a part of your body.  The loss of function alone is often more than can be repaid. However, at Kocian Law Group, we work to help you recoup as much as you can.  You deserve to have medical bills, time out of work, and pain and suffering covered so you can focus on regaining maximum functionality and returning to the work or hobbies you love.

Workplaces that use dangerous machinery must have sound safety policies in place, and these policies must be followed.  Companies must use machine guards. They must keep the guards in good condition and ensure that employees understand how to use them.  All machines and safety features must be regularly maintained.  In addition to providing all necessary safety equipment, companies must train employees to use the machines appropriately.  Proper training and equipment can go a long way toward preventing injury.

Some types of machinery are known to be more dangerous than others.  When a machine poses a known danger, companies must take special care to look after the safety of their employees.  Machines likely to cause amputation injuries include:

  • Slicers
  • Saws
  • Cutters
  • Power presses, both mechanical and hydraulic
  • Drills
  • Farming equipment
  • Any machine with exposed moving parts
  • Roller belts or conveyor belts
  • Woodworking equipment
  • Construction machinery
  • Factory equipment
