Jacksonville Machinery Hazard Lawyers

Construction site workers must follow protocol when operating any type of equipment at the work site. Failure to do so can result in serious construction accident injuries. Eye goggles, gloves, boots, and helmets are protective equipment that can prevent injuries from occurring. Being properly trained on machines and working responsibly also contribute to the safe use of construction machinery. The Jacksonville machinery hazard accident lawyers at Farah & Farah, P.A. outline the hazards that are found at construction sites from defective equipment and machinery hazards.

The book Introduction to Health and Safety in Construction covers safety challenges that construction workers face when operating machines. Construction machinery hazards include:

  • Being crushed between two pieces of equipment;
  • Having fingers or hands severed by a machine;
  • Becoming entangled in a machine;
  • Getting trapped between two parts of a machine; and
  • Being struck by a machine.

Injuries that can result from a construction machinery hazard are the following:

  • Blindness
  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Disfigurement
  • Head trauma
  • Hearing loss
  • Neck injury
  • Severed limbs
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Wounds

Employers must provide workers’ compensation insurance to their employees, which would cover all medical costs if an accident happened at the construction site. The workers’ comp insurance is provided free to the employee. The doctor recommended by the construction manager must examine an injured worker. If the injury causes a worker to immediately go to the hospital, the employee needs to notify the hospital staff that he or she was hurt on the job.

If the construction machinery injury occurred due to a defect in the equipment or negligence of the property owner, the employee can attempt to sue the manufacturer, distributor and owner of the property.
