Cincinnati Improper Maintenance Lawyer
Construction sites are some of the most dangerous workplaces in America, and there are numerous federally regulated and self-imposed safety programs in place to help ensure that all of those who work in or otherwise occupy these sites are protected from preventable accidents that could cause a serious injury. Unfortunately, the negligent actions or policies of a company and its agents often result in the creation of dangerous hazards. An improperly maintained piece of construction equipment can behave in unexpected ways, and malfunctions in powered devices such as saws, lifts, trucks, and other heavy machinery can leave victims with significant injuries and substantial medical bills.
If you have been injured as a consequence of a construction company’s failure to properly maintenance its equipment, you may be able to pursue legal action. Contact the experienced Cincinnati improper maintenance attorneys of Stepleton Dugan, LLC, at 513-321-7733 to learn more about the potential advantages of filing a civil lawsuit in your case.
Malfunctions Due to Maintenance Failures
Much of the heavy equipment used in construction sites requires ongoing and apt maintenance to ensure the safety of those who use it and work around it. When those responsible for maintaining these devices are negligent in their duties, the following accidents become much more likely:
- Falling loads from malfunctioning lifting devices
- Loose or unguarded blades in saws
- Misfiring nail guns
- Improperly controlled torches and welding equipment which can cause burns
Any of these accidents can result in serious injury, leaving you with major medical costs due to no fault of your own, and the egregious negligence which led to them may make it appropriate to file a civil suit rather than a workers’ compensation claim.
