Injured Due To Unsafe Equipment?
Construction sites are dangerous enough when everything goes according to plan. If you have been injured while using defective or unsafe equipment, you may be entitled to compensation beyond your workers’ compensation benefits. An experienced lawyer can help you understand your options.

Unsafe Equipment And Equipment Failures
Most accidents involving unsafe equipment are caused by a failure to maintain the dangerous equipment. In all cases, it is the responsibility of the owner of the equipment to properly maintain it in a safe condition. Owners, not general contractors or subcontractors, are liable for any accidents. This opens an avenue for further compensation for injured workers, above and beyond workers’ comp.
