Heavy Equipment and Machine Accidents in Long Island

There is usually a lot of heavy equipment and machines at construction sites, and these machines can be extremely dangerous, especially when proper care is not taken. Common equipment includes cranes, forklifts, bulldozers, backhoes, tractors, dump trucks, and excavators. When accidents occur with any of this equipment, an experienced Long Island construction accident attorney can assist in recovering damages on behalf of the injured party.

How Accidents Occur

Though there are always risks involved, factors that increase the likelihood of accidents involving heavy equipment include:

  • Workers are not properly trained
  • Equipment is not well maintained
  • Safety regulations are not met
  • Equipment is faulty

When any of these conditions are present, it is likely that there is a responsible party that should pay for your injuries. Work sites have strict regulations and depending on the circumstances, the fault may lie with the worker’s employer, a subcontractor, an independent contractor, the machine manufacturer or another party involved with the construction site. We know how serious these accidents can be, causing serious injuries that may include:

  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Paralysis
  • Amputations
  • Nerve Damage
  • Brain and Spinal Injuries
  • Disfigurement
  • Death

Goldstein and Bashner When it comes to the capacity to generate profound upheaval and anguish in the lives of those involved, almost nothing rivals a serious personal injury event stemming from the negligence of others. The physical suffering, financial pressures and family strain that so often result from such circumstances can seem insurmountable unless justice and accountability can be obtained from those responsible.
