Construction Site Equipment and Work Related Equipment Injuries
At the heart of every personal injury lawsuit is proving who was negligent. When a business owner, manufacturer, or supplier provides you with a defective or unreasonably dangerous product to work with, the manufacturer or seller of the equipment should pay for your injuries. In order to prove negligence, you need to hire an attorney soon after your accident to begin an investigation. It is important to preserve evidence and interview witnesses as soon as possible.
Even when a person is covered by workers compensation, frequently the circumstances of the accident give rise to a claim against some party other than the employer. Any workplace injury should be investigated for other potential compensation as the damages allowed by workers’ comp can be inadequate. These third-party claims can arise against subcontractors at construction sites, manufacturers of equipment and machinery or their operators, property owners, or on rare occasions, against co-workers or supervisors.
We understand that when an individual is injured in an industrial accident, he or she wants an attorney who will take the time to understand what happened and how it is affecting his or her life, and the lives around him or her. Victims want to understand what the law is and how it affects them, and they want to know their case is being properly handled by skilled attorneys.
Industrial plants, manufacturing facilities, and construction sites, by their very nature, are dangerous places to work. Both the state and federal government enacted scores of laws and regulations to protect workers from injuries. No matter how careful you are at work, injuries still happen. These injuries are costly and may force you to take time off from work.
Our attorneys represent people injured in a work accident caused by:
- Collisions with a forklift, truck or automobile
- Falls from scaffolding, a ladder, and a shelf
- An electrocution from an exposed wire on a tool
- An equipment failure and defect
- Dangerous power tool like a nail gun and punch press
