Columbia Vehicle Accident Lawyers

Working in construction poses a large number of risks, one of which is operating large vehicles that include bulldozers, cranes, forklifts, and dump trucks. Vehicular accidents between regular-sized automobiles are devastating enough, but construction-grade accidents can be even more serious. Almost everyone has encountered a construction site in Columbia, and oftentimes these work zones will operate over a large amount of land and major highways. This environment can create a breeding ground for multiple accidents at once, which can lead to major property damage, financial loss, and personal injury.

Individuals who have been injured in a construction vehicle accident are often entitled to compensation for their suffering and possible job loss. Oftentimes, it is difficult to determine who is liable for the accident, as the driver, the vehicle manufacturer, or another employee can be responsible for the accident. At the Goings Law Firm, LLC, our Columbia construction injury lawyers will fight for your rights as a worker, and will help you reclaim any losses you may have suffered due to the risky nature of your work.

Construction Vehicle Accident Causes

The consequences of a construction vehicle accident can be quite severe, no matter how the accident occurred. The environment of a construction site itself is difficult to maneuver, with congested roads, constant detours, or risky behavior causing a driver to be confused, distracted, or simply put in danger. Some ways that construction accidents occur include:

  • Extreme weather conditions
  • Equipment failure
  • Unsafe loading of equipment
  • Driver negligence or fatigue

Whether the driver is dealing with icy roads, poorly manufactured equipment, or unmanaged loads, they can pursue legal action for their injury. Unfortunately, sometimes the drivers themselves are unfit to drive, which causes can cause injury to others. But it is important to mention that if a driver is overworked to the point of fatigue, then the employer could be liable for any damages they caused.
