The Dangers of Construction Site Equipment

If you work around heavy equipment, you are well aware of the inherent dangers of these machines. Due to the sheer size of many of these machines, the resulting injuries are often severe and catastrophic. Heavy equipment accidents can result in brain and spinal cord injuries, crushed and amputated limbs, and all too often, fatal injuries.

We represent injured construction workers, including operators of heavy equipment and those working in the vicinity of heavy equipment.

Third-Party Equipment Accident Claims

Even if you are covered under workers' compensation law, you may be able to pursue initial damages for your heavy equipment accident by filing a personal injury claim. If your injury was the result of a negligent third party, a contractor or equipment manufacture, for instance, we can help you pursue the compensation allowed under personal injury law. This can significantly increase the amount of compensation you obtain for your injury, helping you obtain the resources you need to pay your bills and rebuild your life.
