Defective Construction Vehicles
One way that construction workers can be
seriously injured is if they are operating a faulty construction vehicle. Bulldozers,
forklifts, and other types of construction vehicles pose a danger to the operators
and to the other workers on the ground. If these vehicles are defective,
they can cause an
accident that could injure or kill construction workers who are in or around the
vehicle. If you or someone you love sustained an injury due to a defective
construction vehicle, you should speak with one of the dedicated Brooklyn
construction accident lawyers at Belushin Law Firm.
Faulty Scaffolding Accidents
Much of the work done by construction workers is done at high elevations
either indoors or outdoors. Platforms, staging,
scaffolding, and guard rails are all required to keep workers safe from fall hazards.
Falls from heights are the number one most deadly type of construction accident. The mechanisms
that construction workers rely on to elevate them such as scaffolding
and guard rails, must be functioning properly at all times.
Any defect in these systems can cause them to collapse and seriously injure or even
kill the workers who were standing on them. If you or someone you love was injured in a
scaffolding accident due to defects in the scaffolding or other system,
you should speak with a Brooklyn defective scaffolding lawyer about a
potential claim for relief.
Unreliable or Broken Construction Equipment
Tools and construction equipment are used on a daily basis at a work site.
Some of the tools used by construction workers include nail guns, saws,
jackhammers, planers, and other machinery. All of the tools with projectiles
or working parts and gears can pose a serious safety hazard if they are
not built properly and inspected regularly. Nail guns can cause serious
injury if they fire at an inappropriate time. Other machines with working
parts can cause crushed fingers and hands or a loss of a limb. Anyone
who uses these machines regularly understands the importance that they
are built and assembled with care.
