The use of heavy machinery, especially on a construction site or in an industrial setting, can lead to serious injury. Workers and other people who handle heavy machinery without proper training and without following proper safety precautions often cause construction equipment accidents. At DeLuca & Weizenbaum, Ltd., our attorneys protect the victims of job site accidents involving heavy machinery and help them make a full medical and financial recovery.
The effects of a construction equipment injury involving heavy machinery could be immediate or they may take years before they become evident. Repetitive stress can be just as dangerous as one construction equipment accident, when it comes to the use of heavy machinery.

There are strict OSHA regulations as to how heavy machinery is supposed to be properly maintained and operated. An injured worker can take action against responsible parties at a construction site when they have acted negligently and failed to follow OSHA regulations.

- Road construction accidents
- Machinery failure
- Forklift accidents
- Inadequate safety equipment
- Bulldozer accidents
- Articulating boom failure
- Compaction machinery
Common heavy machinery injuries include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Closed head trauma
- Hand-arm vibration syndrome
- Air embolism
