Construction Accident:

Manufacturer of Equipment or Machinery

 The manufacturer of defective construction machinery or equipment that results in harm may, in many cases, be held liable for damages under the legal concept of “strict liability.” Strict liability means that the manufacturer is liable for injury, regardless of fault or intention, simply because the harm or damage is a consequence of the product.  Common construction accidents that result from defective or faulty equipment include:

  • Power tool accidents
  • Forklift accidents
  • Crane accidents
  • Welding accidents
  • Scaffolding accidents
