Construction Equipment – Product Liability Lawyer – Arizona

Construction Equipment Issue – Phoenix Product Liability Attorney - Arizona Burg SimpsonConstruction sites have long been the most dangerous of workplaces. Injury accidents and on-the-job fatalities are so prevalent that one out of every five workplace deaths took place on a construction site. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, in fact, has named the construction industry’s most frequent incidents the “Fatal Four,” which account for nearly two-thirds of construction worker deaths. If you have lost a loved one to a construction accident that involved heavy equipment, speak with a product liability lawyer as soon as possible.

OSHA’s fatal four includes:

Falls — 38.8 percent of construction fatalities in 2015
Struck by object – 9.6 percent
Electrocutions – 8.6 percent
Caught-in/between – 7.2 percent

Because there is no specific category for accidents involving heavy machinery, these accidents can be classified as either struck by an object, caught-in or between an object, or even as electrocution. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in an accident involving construction equipment, call a Burg Simpson product liability attorney at 602-777-7000 or fill out our Free Case Evaluation form now.

Heavy construction equipment falls into one of four broad categories:

  • Earth Moving Equipment
    • Excavators
    • Backhoes
    • Bulldozers
    • Graders
    • Loaders
    • Trenchers
    • Scrapers
    • Dump trucks
  • Construction Vehicles
    • Tippers
    • Dumpers
    • Trailers
    • Tankers
  • Material Handling Equipment
    • Crane
    • Conveyors
    • Hoists
    • Forklifts
  • Construction Equipment
    • Concrete mixers
    • Compactors
    • Pavers
    • Road rollers

If defective construction equipment caused an accident that left you seriously injured, you could have grounds for a product liability lawsuit. Talk to a defective product lawyer quickly by calling Burg Simpson Arizona at 602-777-7000.

According to a Journal of Safety Research study published in 2006, “heavy equipment operators and construction laborers made up 63 percent of the heavy equipment- and truck-related deaths.” Additionally, backhoes and trucks were involved in about half of these fatalities, while rollovers were cited as the primary cause of death of heavy equipment operators.

Accidents involving heavy construction equipment can cause:

  • Amputations
  • Asphyxiation
  • Brain injuries
  • Burn injuries
  • Electrocutions
  • Fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries

If you have suffered the loss of a loved one because of defective or dangerous construction equipment, contact a Phoenix product liability attorney immediately by calling 602-777-7000.
