THE NEED FOR CERTAIN EQUIPMENT AT CONSTRUCTION SITES IS APPARENT; INJURY TO THOSE WHO USE THEM SHOULD NOT BE AS APPARENT
South Florida has always been developing the land down here to accommodate for the growth in population, a booming tourism, and simply to keep up on the modern times. With as many construction projects that can be taking place at any given time, there is even more equipment that can be found at each one of these construction sites.
For many of us, it is obvious that there is a need for tools and equipment when construction is taking place; however, what we sometimes fail to recognize is that these pieces of equipment and tools can be dangerous, unsafe, and at times defectives. Some of the tools and equipment commonly found at construction sites include:
- Elevators / Lift Mechanisms
- Welding Machinery
Injuries that occur because of dangerous, unsafe, or defective equipment happen far too often at construction sites. It is important to know that someone may be liable for your injuries and any expenses related to those injuries. Madalon Law has experienced construction accident attorneys who are prepared to litigate your accident case against the responsible party.
HOW EQUIPMENT CAN CAUSE INJURY
In dealing with dangerous, unsafe, or defective equipment accident cases, there can be a multitude of reasons why a person receives an injury. Equipment being used at construction sites, or equipment being manufactured and installed at plants can both cause severe injury to a person. Some of the more specific and common causes of injuries from dangerous, unsafe, or defective equipment include:
- Equipment lacking safety mechanism;
- Using equipment in an improper manner;
- Equipment that was defective from the manufacturer;
- Failing to maintain equipment properly;
- Disregarding safety precautions
