Heavy Equipment Accidents

Heavy Equipment Injury Claims

Injuries resulting from the use of heavy equipment at construction sites are common. When the accident is caused by negligence, the injured person may be able to file a personal injury claim to recover damages and compensation. At the northern New Jersey law firm of Brady Reilly & Cardoso (BRC), our personal injury lawyers have many years of experience handling construction site accident claims. They can advise you about developing a case for your heavy equipment accident injuries.

Your Decisions, Our Experience
Call (201) 997-0030

When you meet with one of our personal injury lawyers, we make sure that you have all the information you need to make decisions about the case. We discuss the circumstances of your injury, describe the legal process and advise you about your options. This includes explaining the difference between workers compensation and your potential personal injury claim. We talk about the probability of success and the length of time your claim might require.

Examples of Heavy Equipment Injury Cases

Injuries resulting from an accident involving heavy equipment can be serious — head and brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and amputations. Fatal accidents occur more often than one might think. BRC has helped people after accidents involving heavy equipment such as:

  • Bulldozers
  • Earth movers
  • Dump trucks
  • Backhoes
  • Forklifts
  • Cement mixers
  • Graders

Liability issues in heavy equipment cases can be complex. The equipment itself may be defective or poorly maintained. In such cases, we can file a product liability claim or a claim with the equipment leasing company. In other cases, the accident may have been caused by negligence on the part of the contractor or property owner. In all cases, we make sure that your claim is against the correct party and that our lawyers are thoroughly prepared for trial, settlement negotiations or other forms of dispute resolution.
