New Jersey Defective Machinery Attorneys
OSHA issues thousands of citations every year for issues involving construction machinery that make that machinery dangerous to construction workers on the job. Unfortunately, construction employers and third party contractors are all too often guilty of taking shortcuts and cutting corners in ways that create many of the hazards of dangerous machinery at construction job sites. Corners may be cut because time or money is valued above the lives and safety of construction workers at the job site. Another issue arises when machine manufacturers themselves cut corners, failing to install safety mechanisms that could be added to the machines they produce in order to help protect the safety of construction workers. Therefore, employers, third party contractors, and machine manufacturers are often at fault when injuries or deaths result from issues with defective machinery.
