Injuries Caused by Negligent Maintenance of Equipment
Negligent Maintenance of Equipment | Broken Tools or Machines | Worn Out Ladders, Scaffolding or Other Equipment
Construction tools, machinery and equipment take a constant beating. If they are not properly maintained, however, they can pose a significant risk of serious injury. A broken ladder or a missing part in scaffolding can lead to a fall, or even the collapse of the scaffold. Bent or damages power tools can kick back on workers, causing catastrophic injury. If you or someone you love has been hurt on a construction site because tools, machinery or equipment were not properly maintained, we can help.
At Sackstein Sackstein & Lee, LLP, we have fought for the rights of injured people in New York City and on Long Island for more than six decades. We take an individualized approach with every client, learning the details of your accident, as well as what you need to compensate you for all your losses. We will be your advocate throughout the legal process, keeping you updated on the status of your case, as well as your options, so that you can make educated decisions about your future.
