There are many different types of equipment and tools on the construction site that can be defective. Examples of this may include defective scaffolding and ladders, as well as heavy machinery such as forklifts, dump trucks and tractors. A wide variety of construction tools may also fall under this category, as they can cause catastrophic injury if found to be defective.

Accidents due to defective construction equipment may occur for a variety of reasons. For example, the particular piece of equipment may have been designed with a dangerous defect. Or, the equipment could have been designed without flaw, but manufactured with a defect that led to your injury. In other cases a piece of equipment may be rendered defective due to lack of maintenance and proper care.

No matter the cause, defective construction equipment is very dangerous and can have catastrophic consequences for the equipment operator. In the event that a piece of equipment or machinery malfunctions while in use, the operator can suffer serious or even life threatening injuries. Such injuries may include serious brain trauma, amputated limbs, broken bones, serious lacerations, internal injuries, or even death. Many times, injuries caused by defective construction equipment can lead to permanent disability for the operator, resulting in major damages for the family.
