Dangerous Equipment and Heavy Machinery Injuries

Our Firm Helps Clients Across Northern California Who Are Injured By Construction Equipment

With such a high number of accidents on construction sites every year, it is common for individuals affected by dangerous equipment accidents to feel like just another statistic. At Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP, we show our clients genuine compassion and professional legal support, so you know that your case is being taken seriously from start to finish. We are ready to fight for the full compensation that you deserve.

Injury Claims After Equipment Accidents

If a third-party contractor or machine manufacturer is responsible for your accident, it is possible for you to seek compensation through a personal injury or wrongful death claim, especially if your workers’ compensation benefits are not adequate or applicable. Our lawyers handle third-party injury claims for injured construction and industrial workers, including those that involve faulty equipment or machinery. When you need to pursue financial compensation to recover your losses, come to our firm.

Compensation from a construction equipment injury claim can be used to cover:

  • Ongoing treatment expenses
  • Pain and suffering

The previous list of compensation is not exhaustive. There may be many other types of damages that apply to your case. Our attorneys are here to make sure all applicable damages are counted and added to the case’s value.

Injuries Caused by Heavy Machinery Accidents

Due to the nature of most construction sites, there may be several types of heavy machinery in use at any given time, from bulldozers to cranes to excavators. We can work on cases that involve virtually any type of heavy machinery.
