This is because industrial machinery combines a variety of quickly moving and potentially dangerous parts that need proper safeguarding. Some of the most hazardous machine parts include:

- Rapidly moving belts
- Reciprocating arms
Buffalo Machinery Accidents Lawyers
Even smooth, slowly rotating shafts can grip your clothing and cause an arm or leg to move into a compromising position or be pulled into the machinery. When something like this happens, severe industrial machinery injuries can take place, including:
- Crushed fingers or hands
Workers’ compensation benefits cannot fully cover the medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering caused by such dramatic injuries. So if the accident was caused due to the negligence of someone else, it is often necessary to file a personal injury lawsuit. Depending on the specific circumstances that caused the injury, the machine manufacturer, repair company, or others could be held liable in court for your damages.
