Equipment Injury Lawyer Philadephia Pennsylvania
One of the biggest causes of workplace accidents is the equipment that workers use on a day-today basis. Defective equipment, equipment that is not well-maintained, or equipment that is not operated correctly can all lead to serious accidents and injuries. This is why employers and employees must all be vigilant about obeying equipment operational rules and also keep their safety, and the safety of their co-workers, in mind.
Construction equipment and machinery is often the cause of construction worker accidents. Backhoe accidents, scissor lift accidents, masonry machinery accidents, hydraulic jack accidents, front-end loader accidents, boom accidents --- all these and many more construction machine and equipment accidents cause many injuries every year in Pennsylvania and across the nation. Often, machinery and equipment accidents are not just accidental. They are usually caused by someone's negligence or carelessness. If the equipment is not designed and manufactured or maintained safely or if the workers who use the construction equipment are not trained and supervised properly, accidents can occur.
If a tool, a piece of equipment, or a machine fails, or is misused, it can cause injury to construction workers. For example, the injury to construction workers can be caused by a failed hydraulic pumps; or faulty compressed air lines, defective cables, improperly erected ladders, loose parts from a tool of any kind, defective drills, badly designed saws, malfunctioning pumps, flawed bulldozers, dangerously designed or used forklifts, untrained crane operation, unchecked wrecking balls, backhoe misuse, rotten wooden pallets. Even small nails, bits, blades, bolts and screws can cause injury if misplaced or misused.
Theset injuries are usually preventable. However, each year, numerous employees sustain serious injuries.
