Equipment/Machine Accidents

Being Injured by Construction Machinery

Some of the worst construction accidents are caused when heavy machinery malfunctions, is used incorrectly or is operated negligently. These powerful pieces of equipment make construction both easier and more dangerous — with construction equipment accidents often leading to severe physical injuries and death. At Gelber & O’Connell, LLC, we offer comprehensive, aggressive representation to individuals who have suffered devastating construction injuries in accidents involving machinery.

If you or a loved one has been injured on a construction site, you may be entitled to compensation above and beyond your workers’ compensation claim. When a defective product or third-party negligence contributes to your injuries, our personal injury attorneys can help ensure you recover the compensation you deserve.
