Heavy Equipment Accidents

Heavy Equipment Accidents in Laurel

Trust Your Case to Our Experienced Construction Accident Lawyers

When used properly, cranes, bulldozers, and other heavy equipment are useful tools for the completion of construction projects. However, when heavy construction equipment is used improperly or when it is defective or improperly maintained, it can cause serious or fatal injuries to others.

Common causes of heavy equipment accidents include:

  • Error caused by the operator
  • Incompetence of an operator
  • Poor loading process
  • Failure to maintain or inspect heavy equipment
  • Use of heavy machines in poor weather conditions
  • Dangerous conditions on a work site

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving heavy equipment, contact McGowan & Cecil, LLC. Our personal injury attorneys are dedicated to helping clients who have been injured in construction accidents, industrial accidents, warehouse accidents, and other workplace accidents.
