Types of Defective Construction Equipment

Defective construction equipment refers to tools, machinery, or devices used in construction that have flaws, faults, or imperfections that can compromise their safety, functionality, or efficiency.

Our award-winning lawyers have recovered compensation for construction workers injured by defective equipment such as:

  • Ladders: Defective ladders may have structural weaknesses, broken rungs, or unstable joints, posing a risk of falls.
  • Scaffolding: Faulty scaffolding can lead to collapses or accidents. This may include issues with the structure, materials, or assembly.
  • Faulty switches: Electrical equipment with defective switches can cause electrical hazards and pose a risk of shocks or fires.
  • Hand tools: Defective hand tools, such as hammers, wrenches, or power tools, may have broken parts or malfunctioning mechanisms, increasing the likelihood of accidents.
  • Cranes: Defective cranes may suffer from structural issues, malfunctioning controls, or inadequate maintenance, leading to accidents and injuries.
  • Forklifts: Defects in forklifts, including brake failures, steering issues, or load instability, can result in accidents and damage.
  • Conveyor belts: Faulty conveyor belts can pose risks like jamming, tearing, or unexpected stops, leading to injuries or disruptions in workflow.
  • Drill presses and lathes: Defects in these machines can result in uncontrolled movements, mechanical failures, or other safety hazards.
  • Safety harnesses: Defective safety harnesses may fail to properly secure workers, increasing the risk of falls from heights.
  • Heavy machinery: Defective heavy machinery, such as bulldozers or excavators, can have mechanical failures that lead to accidents and injuries.
  • Missing safety guards: Equipment lacking proper safety guards exposes operators to potential hazards, increasing the risk of injuries.

Unfortunately, there is no limit to which equipment may be defective. Many construction workers are injured by defective equipment every year.
