Punch Press Malfunctions Accidents

New York Punch Press Accident Attorney Offering Free Consultation to Injured Construction Workers

A punch press is either a handheld or machine powered device that shapes metal. Unfortunately, the power of machine powered punch presses makes them extremely dangerous to the operator and others. In fact, the United States Department of Labor’s Occupational Health & Safety Administration (OSHA) has reported that 49% of accidents involving a mechanical power press result in an amputation.

Punch press accidents occur due to a variety of reasons, including poor maintenance, inadequate supervision, inadequate training, defective parts, and inadequate inspections.

I met Diana Carnemolla and Howard S. Hershenhorn during the darkest time of our lives, when my husband was in a coma with very little chances to survive, due to a car accident. The compassion and professionalism that they showed myself and my family during such a difficult time combined with an incredible willingness to get the best results for us have shown us that we had made the absolute best choice. They not only fought extremely hard for what proved to be a very difficult case, but they also emotionally helped us through this incredible ordeal and have been a caring advocate for our family and our case. They got us the best results we could have expected given the circumstances and didn't give up when things got more challenging. We would absolutely recommend their Law Firm to handle the toughest of cases while providing such a great deal of personal support. Diana proved to be personally invested in our case ultimately seeking the best outcome for our family. We cannot thank them enough for what they have done for us. V.P.
