HEAVY EQUIPMENT PRODUCTS LIABILITY

Missouri Heavy Equipment Accident Lawyer

Every year, thousands of workers using heavy equipment are injured on the job. According to OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration), in 2010 alone, 4,690 workers were killed on the job. This was more than 90 deaths a week or almost 13 deaths every day. Construction workers made up 18.7 percent of these deaths. The top four leading causes of construction worker death are (www.osha.gov):

  • Falls
  • Electrocutions
  • Struck by Object
  • Caught-In/Between

Many of these accidents can be caused by defective machinery and equipment. What is already a dangerous situation is worsened by products liability. The heavy equipment defect can occur in the manufacturing, design or marketing of the product. There may also be defects in the warnings or instructions on use that accompany the product.
