    Backhoe loader accident claim


    backhoe loader accident claim can be brought if you feel that you have been injured as a result of negligence on a construction site. It is extremely common for incidents such as backhoe loader accidents to occur on construction sites. The equipment is heavy duty, tasks are carried out on a massive scale and, if safety procedures are not followed, danger can lurk around every corner. This is a place where everything is super-sized, including the vehicles, so it is vital that machinery is always well maintained.

    Negligence may include damaged or worn controls, broken buckets and flat tyres. It can also relate to situations where accidents occur because employees have not been properly trained. A claim for compensation can legitimately relate to any of these situations, as it is the duty of the site manager to make sure that safety procedures are clear, and the duty of the backhoe loader owner to care for its maintenance. If you have suffered a backhoe loader injury that wasn’t your fault, within the last three years, you may be eligible for a compensatory pay out.
