Heavy Machinery Malfunction
On any construction site, it only takes one small oversight or mistake by a supervisor or a co-worker to cause a disastrous accident. Construction accidents involving heavy machinery could result in life-altering or fatal injuries. When this machinery is in disrepair or does not have the proper safety measures, it can place workers at risk for devastating injuries.
Examples of heavy machinery that could cause serious injuries may include diggers, backhoes, cranes, wrecking balls, bulldozers and power tools. Given their size and power, these tools are effective for getting construction jobs done, but can be deadly when not used properly.Cambridge Forklift Accident Attorneys
