About Excavator Accidents
A standard excavator consists of a boom (backhoe), bucket and cab situated on a rotating platform, or house. The house sits on an undercarriage with tracks or wheels that give the machine mobility. Standard excavators may range in size from a compact excavator that may weigh as little as 3,600 pounds to Caterpillar's largest model that weighs 84,000 pounds. The Terex RH 400, a hydraulic mining excavator, weighs 980 tons (1,960,000 pounds).
The massive size, weight and power of an excavator will place an operator or any construction worker at risk of serious injury in the event of operator error, equipment malfunction or any other situation that causes an accident to occur.
When a construction worker is injured in an excavator accident, he or she may suffer catastrophic injury. Our law firm handles cases of this kind that involve an excavator that malfunctions and collides with a worker or causes a trench collapse, excavator rollover accidents, electrocution, and any other type of construction injury claim that may be related to an excavator in residential or commercial construction.
