Accidents Due to Defective Equipment
Construction sites offer many benefits such as employment and industrial progress. There are, however, many different dangers associated with construction. Due to the great heights that many buildings reach to, and the heavy machinery involved in construction, there is a great risk for serious accidents to occur that result in death or catastrophic injury to those who are involved.
One of the many ways that a construction accident can occur is through defective equipment. There are many different kinds of machines that are used in construction, from earth movers to cranes and other various power tools.
When a crane malfunctions the results can be a large piece of construction material plummeting towards the ground from a great height in some cases. If you are injured due to a defective earth mover such as a tractor, backhoe or cherry picker then you may be entitled to monetary compensation for your injuries. If a defective power tool such as a saw, drill or other machine causes injuries to you then the manufacturer may be held liable for your injuries. Whatever piece of equipment is defective and causes your injuries, you may be entitled to collect damages from that manufacturer.
