Heavy Equipment Accidents

While safety hazards are inherent when working on a construction site, the risk of injury or fatality can be reduced by complying with applicable safety regulations. When these regulations are disregarded and prudent safety measures are not followed, the probability of a heavy machinery accident increases substantially.

Construction equipment can cause injuries in a variety of ways, such as:

  • Running over those working on the ground when changing direction or backing up
  • Crush injuries incurred by those servicing the equipment when the brakes are not set properly
  • Operator injuries when the heavy equipment rolls over because of uneven terrain
  • Injuries caused by objects falling from backhoes or buckets

Although workers compensation benefits will typically constitute the exclusive remedy against an employer for injuries incurred in a construction equipment accident, personal injury damages, which generally are more extensive, may be available if you are an independent contractor or the conduct of a third-party contributes to your injuries. Our experienced Lexington construction accident attorneys pursue personal injury claims against those whose careless or inattentive actions on a construction site cause serious injury or wrongful death.
