Workplace Injuries, Construction Site Incidents And Industrial Accidents Can Be Caused By Defective Products Even When Used Properly By The Employee

by The Beasley Firm  |  April 22, 2012  |  

When an employee or contractor is injured on the job or construction site one may assume that they only have a Workman’s Comp claim when in fact, their injury, amputation, or loved one’s death could have been caused by a defective product, faulty equipment or unsafe working conditions.

On March 26, 2011, a 30 year old Pinnacle Foods worker from Keokuk was tragically killed at work after he became trapped in a piece of equipment. Catastrophic injuries or work place deaths like this one are not uncommon. Sadly, dozens of workers are killed or injured each day due to explosions, fork lift malfunctions, faulty skid loaders, falling debris, conveyor belt accidents, falls from height, steel beam crushes, crane accidents, over-loaded dump trucks or rigs as well as many other product defects or unsafe conditions.

Construction site and workplace accidents happen all too often. In just the year 2010, there were over 4,300 deaths in the United States, as well as tens of thousands of other catastrophic injuries that occurred while an employee or contractor was working on the job. Many times, the injuries or deaths are due to equipment defects or failures, and not operator error.
