Equipment-Related Accidents

If You Have Been Injured in an Accident Involving Construction Equipment, Call the Barrera Law Firm Today at (571) 290-2390

If you are in the construction industry, your physical well-being is absolutely essential to your ability to perform the duties of your job and support yourself and your family. When your physical health is threatened due to the negligence of another person, you have a right to hold them accountable for endangering your livelihood, independence, and quality of life.

Common Types of Construction Accidents

Construction sites are notoriously dangerous, and construction workers have one of the highest work-related injury rates in the county. Many of these injuries occur in relation to the heavy equipment that construction work often requires.

Common equipment-related construction injuries typically stem from the following:

  • Forklift accidents
  • Welding and metalworking accidents
  • Wrecking ball accidents
  • Accidents involving saw, blades, etc.
  • Accidents involving falling equipment such as cranes, heavy beams, etc.

Due to the variety of heavy, potentially dangerous materials and machines that are in use at virtually any construction site, there are a myriad of ways you could be injured and a number of pieces of equipment that could be involved.

If you have been injured in an equipment-related construction accident, let The Barrera Law Firm help. Call (571) 290-2390 today for help.

Liability for Faulty, Broken, or Defective Machinery

When your construction job requires you to operate or work around heavy machinery, it is the duty of your supervisor, employer, and the machine manufacturer to ensure the equipment is functioning properly and safe to use. If you are injured because a tool or piece of construction machinery did not function as it was advertised or intended, you may be able to hold the designer or manufacturer responsible for the resulting damages and losses. This is also true in cases where the error originates design of the tool or machine, in which case the part responsible for the equipment design could be held legally responsible for the error.

Because a number of parties are involved in the design, creation, distribution, advertising, and use of construction equipment, multiple potential responsible parties could be responsible and you may need help figuring this out in the event you are injured. Should it happen to you, call The Barrera Law Firm today to consult with one of our experienced construction accident lawyers in Alexandria.

Losses and Damages Associated with Construction Accidents

When you suffer a serious injury, you are likely to suffer serious personal and financial damage as well, to the tune of thousands of dollars in medical expenses, costly surgeries and treatments, lost wages, and more. As soon as you are injured, seek medical attention and immediately begin keeping track of how much time you are forced to take off from work, how much your injury-related treatments costs, and any other significant damage or harm you experience as a result of your injury. Then, get in touch with someone who can help.
