Dangerous/Unsafe/Defective Equipment Accidents
Construction workers and construction sites in Miami and across South Florida rely on equipment and products ranging from tools to heavy machinery such as cranes in order to build apartment buildings, complexes, commercial buildings, and other projects. Workers rely on manufacturers to create safe, effects products that help them do their job. Unfortunately, each year thousands of construction workers and employees are seriously injured or even killed due to defective products in the workplace. These products can include cranes, construction site vehicles, power tools, safety equipment, and work clothes.
Injuries resulting from defective equipment result in head injuries, spinal cord injuries, burns, and other serious injuries in Miami and across South Florida each year. If you are seriously injured in a workplace accident and believe that a defective product was to blame, it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney who can investigate your accident and can find all liable parties in your case. If a defective product has contributed to your injuries, you may have a legal claim against the manufacturer or retailer of the product as well as against the construction site employer or site owner. Pursuing multiple liable parties increases the chances that you may get fair compensation that covers more of your medical bills, lost income, and other accident related costs. The Flaxman Law Group legal team has spent decades pursuing fair compensation on behalf of workplace accident victims and other personal injury victims in Miami and across South Florida.
