Improper Equipment Maintenance on Construction Sites

When a construction company fails to properly maintain equipment, workers and bystanders alike may be at serious risk of injury. Poorly maintained equipment can lead to serious injuries even when being used properly, causing an innocent party to be left to deal with extensive medical bills and lost wages. However, any negligent construction company that failed to properly maintain its equipment may be held financially liable for any injuries that occur as a result.

Dangers of Construction Equipment

Construction companies have the serious responsibility of maintaining the equipment on their sites in order to keep workers and passer-bys out of harm’s way. Unfortunately, some companies do not uphold this responsibility, and serious accidents occur as a direct result. Some of the most dangerous equipment that may not be properly maintained includes:

  • Scaffolding
  • Cranes
  • Ladders
  • Hydraulic Lifts
  • Safety Restraints
  • Generators
  • Nail Guns

Almost all of the equipment on construction sites requires continued maintenance in order to avoid dangerous accidents. When not properly maintained, any of this equipment has the potential to cause severe injury. Due to the severe implications of these accidents, it is often necessary to take legal action against the construction company responsible for the incident. However, taking on these companies alone can be nearly impossible, making the help of an experienced lawyer essential.
