Why Work With a Heavy Equipment Injury Attorney?

Product manufacturers often put profits over safety in the designing and manufacturing of automated industrial equipment or the proper installation and maintenance of overhead power. Safety may be secondary in the making of forklifts, bucket loaders, tractors, cranes, hoists, and machines used for palletizing, tire changing, or sewer pipe installations.

A heavy equipment injury claim investigated and established by a seasoned attorney can be the first step in holding them accountable.

Our Portland heavy equipment accident attorneys have a track record of success in maximizing compensation in cases involving improper safety devices and design and manufacturing defects. We have long-established relationships with safety experts, judges, and defense attorneys and use these connections to pursue compensation for you.

Strong, effective legal representation is your right, regardless of your background. We’re ready to listen to you and spring into action on your behalf.
