On August 23, 2012, another company was cited by OSHA for improper guarding on industrial machines, more specifically, mechanical power presses.  This time, the company is the Pennsylvania die manufacturer, Danco Precision, Inc.

Failing to properly guard the mechanical power presses is just one of fourteen safety violations found by OSHA.

One of the most common injuries sustained by workers who work with industrial machines is amputation.  Many of the injured workers we help who were injured by industrial machines in Pennsylvania and New Jersey got hurt because the machine either didn't have a guard when it was supposed to, or the guard was improperly installed.

Most injured workers do not know that they may have other legal claims in addition to a workers' compensation claim.  Other liable parties include:

  • machine manufacturers,
  • maintenance and/or servicing companies for the machines, or
  • guard manufacturers.

An industrial machinery accident lawsuit may be complex because of the law involved.  You need an experienced Pennsylvania industrial machinery accident lawyer to properly assess your case and the possible liable parties.
