Demolition can be among the most dangerous type of construction work. Falling debris, electrical accidents, structure removal, collapses, and ladder accidents are all possible when conducting demolition work. Demolition also often requires the use of demolition tools, including explosives, which when not used correctly, could cause serious and deadly accidents.

Causes of Demolition Tool Accidents
Most demolition tool accidents are due to a failure to comply with established safety measures, defective equipment, worksite neglect, or improper use of equipment. This negligence puts construction workers and bystanders at-risk for serious injuries and/or death.
The most common causes of demolition tool accidents include:
- Blasting accidents
- Improperly timed explosive fuses
- Explosion induced collapses or falls
- Demolition and heavy equipment violations and failure
- Falling objects due to explosion
- Exposure to toxic chemicals and substances
- Failure to use personal protective equipment
- Lack of overhead protection
- Misjudgment of conditions
Demolition tool accidents may also be caused by third-party recklessness or negligence, including negligent behavior by someone other than a coworker or employer or a defective product. If injuries are sustained due to these reasons, a third-party liability claim could be filed against the demolition company, the manufacturer of the defective demolition tools, and anyone involved in the chain of distribution of those products. The experienced personal injury lawyers at Mike Agruss Law can review your case and determine who may be liable for your injuries and damages and advise you on the best course of action for your claim.
