The Palm Beach Post highlights West Palm Beach construction accident attorney Ted Babbitt’s answers to questions regarding aspects of personal injury law. When asked:

Can faulty machinery cause a serious construction accident?”

Ted responded that construction work is a critical part of the U.S. economy, yet few realize how complex and dangerous it is for the individuals employed in this industry. Read his Faulty machinery can be the cause of your construction accident article.

Sometimes accidents happen because the equipment itself is faulty. Sub-contractors may use their own machinery but cannot always guarantee the absolute safety of these items. In other cases, the manufacturer could be held liable because of a design or production defect.

Some examples of construction accidents due to defective equipment from third parties include:

  1. Crane injuries
  2. Scaffolding
  3. Machinery
