I was hurt on a machine at work. I was using the machine just like my supervisor taught me, but the machine hurt me anyway. What do I do now?

Folks who work in factories, on construction and maintenance crews, and in industrial and manufacturing settings are often told to do "whatever it takes" to get a job done. Whether it's a stalled assembly line, a broken drill press, or a roof with a leak, the people told to fix these problems are under pressure to fix it fast, fix it right, and fix it without asking questions. Sometimes, they use equipment that they have never trained on, and other times they are told to repair a machine. Either way, the equipment's or machine's warnings stickers and labels don't tell the who story about how the machine could badly hurt somebody.    Alabama law says that people hurt at work while using equipment or fixing machinery can bring claims against the maker of the equipment. An on-the-job injury does not limit you to worker's compensation.
