Dangerous industries, such as construction and forestry, employ large number of Oregon residents. Each year, employees in these industries suffer countless workplace injuries and fatalities. For 40+ years, our Salem law firm has represented clients injured at work throughout Northwest Oregon.
Oregon Workplace & Construction Accidents Have Many Causes
The state of Oregon's Department of Consumer and Business Services tracks workplace injuries and fatalities. The agency's 2012 accident investigation report lists dangerous equipment and materials that contributed to workplace accidents throughout Oregon.
Included in the report were equipment and materials such as:
- Toxic chemicals
- Electrical equipment
Employees in Oregon are entitled to a safe work environment. When a poorly designed or manufactured product causes personal injuries at work, product liability laws in Oregon permit clients to recover financial compensation. Our firm excels at the investigation and documentation of workplace accidents caused by defective or dangerous products.
Construction Equipment Accidents
Product liability cases can arise from construction accidents that involve equipment defects. In particular, when poorly designed or manufactured scaffoldings collapse or the defective brakes on heavy equipment fail, severe injuries can result. The protection equipment on construction sites can also fail to guard and protect workers.
Equipment defects and the injuries they cause may be due to poor designs, shoddy manufacturing, or inadequate safety warnings and equipment instructions. Regardless of the origins of the defects, attorney Randy M. Elmer has the experience and dedication to successfully handle complex and involved product liability cases in Salem, Oregon, and the surrounding areas.
