Heavy Equipment Accidents

Heavy Equipment Must Be in Top Working Order Contact an Attorney if You Were Hurt on a Construction Site in South Jersey

As a society, we are often intrigued by giant yellow or orange construction vehicles and want to find out what’s going on behind the protective fence of a construction site. While we look on with interest, operators of heavy equipment such as cranes, pavers, backhoes, bulldozers, or concrete mixers, are well aware of the dangers they face. These types of heavy machines can cause devastating injuries when something goes wrong.

If you or someone you know has been injured, or worse, in a construction accident involving a piece of heavy equipment or machinery in NJ, contact a lawyer at Graziano & Flynn, P.C. We have won millions of dollars, in settlements and trial verdicts, for construction workers, like you, who have been injured while operating, or while in the vicinity of, heavy equipment in Gloucester County and throughout New Jersey.

Heavy Machinery is Dangerous, but Necessary, on Construction Sites

Contractors and construction workers can’t build huge structures, create highway and bridge infrastructure or do any of the other things that we depend on them to do unless they use heavy equipment. Cranes, fork lifts and excavators are used to help lift incredibly heavy equipment from place to place, mix, pour and spread materials and dig foundations, etc. With necessity, however, comes an inherent danger associated with bone-crushing mechanisms.

The U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) revealed that construction site accidents involving heavy equipment are often incredibly severe. In fact, the number of employees killed after being hit by objects falling from equipment or by the actual heavy machinery itself increased by seven percent in 2012, year over year. The majority of injuries reported were blamed on the following:

  1. Misuse or inappropriate operation of the equipment
  2. Equipment that was not properly designed or is defective
  3. Lack of traffic controls/proper communication to machine operators
  4. Materials falling from equipment
  5. Tipping/falling of machinery
  6. Noise
  7. Hazardous materials

Hiring the right attorney to represent your divorce case is one of the most important decisions you will ever make! I was fortunate enough to hire Ron to handle my case and had what I believe to be a favorable outcome. I based my opinion on achieving the goals we set in the beginning of the case and comparing my final outcomes to friends and colleagues that went through the process with other attorneys. Thank you Ron! Craig
It seemed like my case took forever but I trusted Ron Grazaino and listened to what he had to say. Mr Graziano said that the insurance company was not being fair and that we should go to trial. The trial was very nerve racking however he eased my mind and killed them with proof and knowledge. My outcome of my trial brought me to tears of joy. I could never imagine such a good outcome.
