Whenever an employee is asked to operate a piece of machinery, there is the risk of an injury.
Recently in Florida, an employee was injured after the front-loader he was operating flipped over.
The 32-year old suffered a leg injury when his loader flipped into an elevator shaft and to rest upside-down, pinning the worker.
Whenever the use of machinery is required, it is on the employer to ensure that the equipment is properly maintained and that proper safety measures have been taken to ensure the worker's safety.
Even when all these precautions are taken, accidents and injuries will happen.
When you are injured at work, make sure you know your rights. You can not assume that your employer will look out in your best interest. Most of the time, the employer will try and offer you a deal that seems appealing, but in fact, you will be getting short-changed, and not getting the compensation you fully deserve.
