Types of Equipment Accidents on Construction Sites
Misuse and malfunction of construction equipment cause multiple preventable injuries each year. If you commonly work construction, you are aware of the various types of heavy machinery and specialized equipment that is frequently in use—and the dangers that each piece brings. The hazard inherent to working side-by-side with large machinery can be increased when companies fail to train workers; when equipment is not adequately maintained; and when the manufacturers of these machines release unsafe products.
Examples of equipment failures and accidents include:
- Crushed under or between heavy machines, such as a tractor
- Scaffolding or ladder collapse
- Safety harness failure
- Power tool causes electrocution or laceration
- Electrical system short circuits
- Gas lines rupture or explode
- Construction crane tips or falls
Even small pieces of equipment, like a helmet, can be essential to worker safety. Unexpected failures of such gear can result in severe injuries. As such, someone hurt in an equipment failure accident may require extensive hospitalization and further rehabilitation for years.
It is important to fight for workers’ compensation benefits or an injury settlement that will provide for your damages now and in the future if you are in this position. Our attorneys can help you determine what types of compensation you’re eligible to file for, and build a strong case on your behalf.
