Equipment accidents can occur in any facet of construction work. Construction equipment is heavy and dangerous, even when safety precautions are taken, and injuries resulting from these machines are often debilitating and life threatening. Many equipment accidents are due to manufacturing defects, equipment malfunction, lack of instruction or warning, or inadequate supervision. When this is the case you need the experience of a construction products liability attorney to explain your rights.
The most frequent accidents and injuries to construction workers are caused by these types of equipment and tools:
- Dump trucks
- Front-end loaders
- Personnel lifts
- Power tools, saws, drills, nail-guns
- Skid steer loaders
- Wood chippers
