When Defective Equipment Leads To Serious Construction Site Injuries

Construction tools, vehicles and equipment are engineered to sustain heavy use and abuse. But these implements can fail due to flaws in their design, materials or how they have been assembled. In other cases, accidents are caused when an equipment service company alters a piece of equipment or a construction company uses it in a way that violates a safety standard.

More Than 25 Years Of Experience On Your Side

When a construction accident happens in one of these ways, the victim of the accident can initiate legal action against the equipment supplier, service company, or his or her own employer. Compensation obtained in a third-party or safety violation claim can often exceed that obtained from the workers’ compensation claim.

At the Law Office of Bryan R. Snyder, APC, we have more than 25 years of experience handling injury claims for construction workers in San Diego and throughout Southern California. We can provide you with aggressive representation in cases involving:

  • Defective construction hand tools: Defective hand tools can cause cuts, puncture wounds and even accidental amputations.
  • Ladders and scaffolding: Did a fall from a ladder or scaffold cause your injury? Multiple parties may be liable. We can conduct a thorough investigation to identify all responsible parties.
  •  Heavy construction machinery: When powerful construction machinery is involved in an accident, the resulting injuries are often severe and catastrophic.

We have the experience, knowledge and resources needed to win these cases, and when we represent you, we will seek maximum compensation for you.

If you or someone you know has been injured on a construction site, call 619-752-1102 or 800-611-2581.
