Legal ServicesInjuries From ProductsConstruction Equipment


The nature of construction work is both very physical and dangerous at times. The type of equipment used to complete the job is often complex, powerful, and large in scale.

When the equipment has been manufactured or sold with defects, the resulting injuries can be extreme and cause not only physical damages but may also impact the injured person financially as well.

When construction workers are harmed by defective equipment, it is important that an attorney is contacted immediately. The sooner an investigation of the injury is put into place, the sooner the attorney can preserve the evidence, and begin to build a case to protect your rights.


Complex machinery and equipment can be very dangerous if it has been manufactured and sold with defects. Some examples of defective construction equipment include:

  • Defective handheld equipment (saws, nail guns, etc.)
  • Lack of safety devices (guards, shields, etc.
  • Defective table saws
  • Defective forklifts
  • Defective cranes
  • Defective bulldozers


The types of injuries that these defective pieces of equipment can cause may be devastating. Speaking with an experienced attorney is the first step in protecting your rights if you have been injured.

Even when equipment is operating properly, construction can be a very dangerous job. However, when construction equipment or machinery malfunctions or is defective, it can cause devastating and life-threatening injuries. Some of the most commonly reported construction equipment defects include defective scaffolding that collapses, defective electrical equipment that leads to electrocution and other serious complications, and crane defects that result in cranes collapses.

An attorney can be an invaluable asset in a construction accident lawsuit. Because lawyers who are experienced with construction accident lawsuits are well-versed in this type of law, they know exactly what it takes to build a strong case and to counter the arguments that the defense may bring.

Additionally, they have the legal resources and experience needed to navigate complex legal processes, which can ultimately improve your chances of securing the compensation you need for your injuries and other losses.

Any mistake on a construction site can expose both workers and passersby to serious hazards. While most people assume that construction accident liability rests with the employer/site manager, when it comes to defective equipment, there are actually other parties that could be responsible, including the equipment designer and/or manufacturer. You should discuss the specifics of your situation with an experienced construction accident lawyer to determine who is ultimately responsible for your unnecessary suffering.
