Equipment Malfunction / Defective Construction Equipment
Los Angeles Construction Accident Lawyer
Not all construction accidents are related to inexperienced or negligent construction workers or companies. At times, the manufacturer of a certain tool or machine may be held liable for producing a defective product. The construction company may be held liable for improper maintenance or repair of construction equipment as well, if this causes it to malfunction. When construction equipment is defective or malfunctions in any way, this may place anyone in the vicinity at risk of catastrophic injury or death. Construction equipment is necessary to get the job done, and it is often extremely heavy and powerful. As such, an operator who loses control of defective equipment, such as a dozer or crane, may be at risk of injury, as may any workers or visitors at the site.
