Murrieta Construction Equipment Failures Attorneys

Dangerous Tools and Equipment at the Job Site

Manufacturers of all types have a responsibility to make certain that their products are safe for their intended use. When product-makers fail to meet this basic responsibility, the results can be disastrous.

At Gibbs & Fuerst, LLP, we know that when tools, equipment and heavy machinery at a construction site don't function like they're supposed to, workers are the ones who pay the most serious price. Our attorneys have extensive experience with construction accidents involving defective equipment and are available to serve clients in Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego counties.

Construction work is dangerous enough without the risk of accident due to equipment failures or unsafely designed or manufactured products. We use a combination of experience, expert resources and determination to hold negligent manufacturers accountable for construction equipment failures and the devastating harm they can cause.

Acting Quickly to Preserve the Evidence

Anyone who claims that they were injured by a defective product has the burden of showing that the product had a design or manufacturing defect when it left the manufacturers control, or that the instructions or warnings provided by the manufacturer were inadequate to prevent injury. It is very difficult to meet that burden of proof if the product is not preserved in its post-accident condition as soon as possible. Our lawyers can help you with this and more.

Equipment failure at a construction site may involve almost any item, including:

  • Cranes
  • Forklifts
  • Bulldozers
  • Bucket trucks
  • Backhoes
  • Power tools (including nail guns, power saws and welding equipment)
  • Fall protection equipment (ladder, scaffolding, ropes, latches, et al.)

We work with your workers' compensation lawyer to see that both claims are handled at the same time. We can also provide referrals to workers' compensation lawyers whom we've worked with in your area.
