Compensation for Victims of Defective Machinery
Get help from a Los Angeles product liability attorney!
Every year, many workers are injured due to defects in the machinery they use on the job. This can be due to design defects,
manufacturing defects or a
failure to warn of hazards inherent in the machinery. Actions to recover damages for injuries can be hard to prove as manufacturers heavily resist these claims. If one claim is successful, it can open the way for many other claims from other workers who have been injured.
At Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation, individuals injured by defective machinery receive aggressive and experienced advocacy for their claims. Our firm has many years of experience and proven results that speak volumes of the kind of service we offer. Victims are encouraged to contact a Los Angeles product liability attorney to seek their deserved compensation.
What is the cause of machinery defects?
Unfortunately, machinery defects are more common than many people think. Failure to keep work equipment serviced according to the highest standards can result in serious injury and sometimes even death. Many times, the employer is to blame if negligence is the cause of the defective machinery and the injured worker may be able to file a lawsuit.
Accidents and injuries can, however, be the result of the company who made the machinery. Poor manufacturing may require the lawsuit to be held against the company, not the employer.
Issues that commonly cause injures can include:
- Absent or poorly placed shut-off switches
- Failures to provide guards on saws
- Ladders that collapse
- Cranes that drop loads
- Defective forklifts, bulldozers and backhoes
- Compaction equipment malfunction
- Hole-punching equipment defects
- Defective agricultural machinery
These examples of defective machinery can cause crushed and severely injured limbs, amputation, and serious brain injuries. Because of this, employees are likely to be unable to work and may miss significant amounts of wages. We understand the suffering you are experiencing due to financial and physical hardships and are prepared to help.
