Heavy Equipment Accident Lawyer in Fort Worth
Heavy equipment accidents are among the most common type of workplace accident at construction sites, factories, and gas and oil fields across Texas. When construction companies try to cut corners to save time or money, the possibility exists that heavy equipment is not properly maintained or inspected at a construction site. Employers and third parties have the responsibility of taking every safety precaution necessary to ensure the safety of their employees. When they don’t, the consequences can be catastrophic or even fatal, whether it’s from a crane accident or some other type of construction accident involving heavy equipment.
Employees who work around heavy equipment face an increased injury risk every time they go to work. If you were injured at work and suspect it was even partially due to the negligence of a person other than your employer or due to a defective piece of machinery, you may have grounds to file a third-party lawsuit in Texas.
