Philadelphia Unsafe Construction Equipment Lawyers

Construction workers face numerous hazards each day on the construction site. Some of the hazards are inherent to the job, such as working at great heights and working with massive, complex machinery. However, even though construction workers may face numerous hazards, it does not relieve the liability of employers and construction equipment manufacturers from ensuring workers have safe tools and equipment to perform their jobs. Unsafe construction equipment accidents happen all too often.

When construction equipment malfunctions because of a defect or other negligence, one or more parties may be liable for injuries and damages caused by the defective construction machinery. At  Pansini Law Group, our Philadelphia construction accident lawyers work to hold construction companies, corporations, and equipment manufacturers liable when an employee is injured by unsafe construction equipment.

Our lawyers have extensive experience handling construction injury cases. We handle claims involving all types of unsafe construction equipment, including but not limited to accidents involving:

  • Cranes
  • Bulldozers
  • Scaffolding
  • Dump trucks
  • Backhoes
  • Forklifts
  • Power tools, such as saws, jackhammers, and power nailers
  • Many other tools and equipment found on a construction site

If you are injured by unsafe construction equipment, seek immediate medical attention. Then contact our office to discuss how we can help you hold the responsible parties accountable for their negligence that led to your injuries and damages.

Types of Accidents That Can Occur Because of Unsafe Construction Equipment

Unfortunately, unsafe construction equipment puts everyone on the job site in danger of death or serious injuries. Types of accidents that could result include:

  • Falls from great heights
  • Being hit by falling objects
  • Crushed between equipment or objects
  • Caught in a piece of equipment
  • Electrocutions
  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Amputations and loss of body parts

A lack of maintenance or inadequate inspections could result in unsafe construction equipment. Failing to repair equipment immediately or put it out of use can result in a fatal construction accident. A lack of training, missing safety guards, and inadequate warnings may also lead to an accident.

Construction equipment could be unsafe because of a design flaw or a manufacturing flaw. If so, the product’s manufacturer and other parties could be liable under a product liability claim.

Holding Parties Accountable for Unsafe Construction Equipment Accidents

An accident involving unsafe construction equipment can result in numerous injuries. A worker may sustain:

If a piece of construction equipment injures you, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. However, you may also have a claim against your employer, a contractor, the product manufacturer, and other third parties. Third-party claims for a construction accident claim can result in much more money for your injuries and damages. Some of our clients have received millions of dollars in damages because of a personal injury claim.
