Cement is a powder-like substance created by mixing and heating clay and calcified lime with various other materials, such as silica, calcium, iron, and aluminum, which is usually used as a binding material in the field of construction. In addition to this application, cement is the main ingredient in the production of concrete. Cement has proved itself as a reliable binding material throughout history in the construction of various structures and products. Cement is especially important in that it is used to create concrete, which is a vital construction material.
As a commonly used construction material, faulty cement can create quality and safety problems for a construction project, which may lead to possible lawsuits. Similar to other industrial fields, the cement industry can involve dangerous workplace environments, as cement is considered a hazardous substance during the early stages of its production. Lawsuits related to the cement industry result from onsite injuries or health-related issues, as well as insurance and contract disputes. Cement trucks, which are vehicles used to produce and transport cement, may be involved in a traffic accident and resulting lawsuit.
