Heavy Equipment Accidents
An aggressive Iowa construction accident injury
Look at any construction project in Iowa, and you'll see all kinds of heavy equipment. Equipment such as bulldozers, cranes, backhoes, excavators, front-end loaders, forklifts and other examples. They all have different purposes, but they all have one thing in common. They can all cause very serious injuries to workers in an accident. At Paul McAndrew Law Firm, PLLC, we help injured workers recover workers' compensation benefits.
Each piece of heavy equipment used on construction sites weighs tons and has many moving parts. There are safety procedures that must be followed when this equipment is used, but accidents can still happen. All it takes is one act of carelessness or negligence, or for a defective part to malfunction. The result is a serious work injury.
