What are some examples of construction equipment or machinery accident cases?

There is no case we can point to as an example of the typical construction equipment or machinery case. These cases are varied in cause and type of injury. Here are some examples of cases involving defects in or improper use of construction equipment or machinery:

Crane collapse – a crane used to hoist materials collapsed, striking a pedestrian with disastrous results. Collapsing cranes pose an extreme danger to people and property within their fall radius.

Brake failure –an operator of a skid loader was carrying a load down a sloped road. The brakes on the loader failed, the operator lost control, and was ejected from the loader. Investigation revealed that the brake lines were worn and should have but were not replaced during service.

Nail gun accident – according to the CDC, nail gun accidents result in 37,000 emergency room visits every year in the United States. Nail guns are extremely dangerous. In any event, in our sample case, a roofing contractor employed an unskilled laborer on a crew. The laborer had no training in the use of a nail gun but was permitted to use one. The laborer accidentally discharged several nails into the body of a coworker.

These are just three cases where construction equipment or machinery failed and resulted in injury or death. There are as many cases as there are types of equipment or machinery on any particular construction jobsite. The important thing is to obtain immediate and appropriate medical attention if you have been injured in one of these types of accidents, and then immediately contact a qualified construction accident personal injury or wrongful death attorney before the defective equipment or machine disappears. That defective equipment or machine may be the evidence we need to prove your case, so contact us ASAP and let us protect your legal rights!
