Workplace accident related to defective equipment, maintenance

No matter where you work in the state of Maryland, there is always the chance that you could be involved in a workplace accident. Of course, some career fields are more dangerous than others, such as those in the construction industry.

Even when you are taking the steps necessary to remain safe, you never know when defective equipment or a maintenance related issue could lead to an accident in which you are injured. This can include but is not limited to the following:

-- Ladder falls

-- Forklift and crane accidents

-- Conveyor belt accidents

-- Scaffolding accidents

-- Punch press accidents

In many cases, it appears that an injury was caused by a defective piece of equipment, however, it was actually something that was improperly maintained that directly led to the accident. For instance, if an employer does not keep up with maintenance on a conveyor belt, it could eventually cause serious injury or even death. Along the same lines, if a ladder has become worn out over the years, the employer is responsible for removing it from service before somebody is injured or killed.

Nobody wants to think about being involved in a workplace accident, but this happens from time to time throughout Maryland as well as other states.

As a worker, especially those in a dangerous environment, it is important to know more about how to stay safe as well as your rights in the event of an accident. We can put you on the right path.
