Construction workers face dangerous conditions on a daily basis. Although
there are regulations, statutes, ordinances and industry standards that
mandate employers must provide a reasonably safe working environment,
construction works still suffer serious injuries at an alarming rate.
The number of hazards on a construction site makes it virtually impossible
to prevent all injuries from occurring. These hazards include falls from
scaffolding, being struck by moving or falling machinery, electrocution,
and health hazards resulting from exposure to chemicals.
Faulty Industrial Equipment & Machinery
Faulty equipment and machinery is also responsible for numerous serious
injuries to workers every year. Equipment which is improperly designed,
improperly maintained, or sold to consumers with inadequate warnings can
lead to serious injury or even death. When a worker is injured by a machine
or piece of equipment that is defective, failed to work properly, or is
inherently dangerous, the manufacturer of the machine or equipment can
be held responsible for the injury if it knew of the danger and/or didn't
properly warn the business or employees of the danger. In such a situation,
the manufacturer would have to compensate the worker for things like medical
bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
George & Farinas, LLP has the legal experience to help you with these claims, and access to
the experts you will need to help prove your case.
Persons negligently or recklessly operating dangerous equipment can also
be responsible for serious or catastrophic injury to others. Holding a
negligent party responsible for wrongdoing is about more than compensation.
Negligence threatens workers and others in the community every day. By
upholding safety standards and forcing negligent parties to take responsibility
for their actions, you help enforce safety guidelines and protect others
from suffering the same harm you did. If you have been injured by someone
operating equipment in an unsafe manner, please call our office to discuss
In addition to pursuing claims against those directly responsible for your
