HEAVY EQUIPMENT AND CONSTRUCTION INJURIES
Have you or someone you care about suffered injuries while operating or working around heavy equipment? Were there injuries to the head, back, spine, or even internal injuries or paralysis? Or did the worst happen, and someone you cared about died as the result of the accident?
Most heavy equipment accidents occur on construction sites while workers are just doing their jobs. These work sites include building projects, oil rigs, gas fields, road and bridge projects, and mines. Because of loading, lifting, working from heights, moving materials and oversized vehicles, workers' injuries are often of a crushing type or involve loss of limbs, or injury to the head, neck, spine, or back. These life-changing injuries are usually very serious or catastrophic, or even result in loss of life.
Resolving these claims is often complex and difficult and creates an overwhelming burden on individuals and families. Someone will need to determine if the work environment and equipment met safety standards or if negligence and shortcuts factored into the accident. Sometimes the contractor or owner has not provided enough workers to safely do the job, or perhaps there were OSHA violations. You will need a strong advocate to protect your interests.
