Construction sites are the places where life altering and traffic accidents often occur. There are many regulations and laws that are meant to keep construction workers safe. Unfortunately, even with due diligence and even with the best intentions, when heavy equipment used on construction sites is defective, there is often no way for construction site workers to prevent an injury.
There are many types of heavy equipment failure that can occur on construction sites, including:
- Pieces of heavy equipment that cause sparks or fires
- Equipment that overheats
- Machinery that throws workers or permits them to fall from heights
- Equipment that jerks or moves unexpectedly, causing injury
- Equipment that is top-heavy and easily falls over
No matter what defect heavy machinery has, it can cause many types of injuries, including:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Brain Injuries
These injuries can be painful and extremely expensive to treat. In some cases, they cause permanent injury that prevents the worker from earning their full income and returning to their job. Some injuries can even generate life-long medical bills. Someone with a serious spinal cord injury in Miami Beach, for example, may end up paying more than a hundred thousand dollars in the first year of medical treatment and if severe the injury may cost millions of dollars over a lifetime in assisted living expenses, at-home care, medical treatment, and lost income. Workers compensation will not usually pay for all of these costs, which is why many injured workers turn to the civil courts for help and compensation.You Can Afford an Experienced Attorney
