Compensation for Victims of Defective Machinery
Every year many workers are injured due to defects in the machinery they use in their work. This can be due to design defects,
manufacturing defects or
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 opens the way for many other claims from other persons injured. At Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation, persons injured by defective machinery receive aggressive and experienced advocacy for their claims. Victims of defective machinery are encouraged to contact an attorney to seek the compensation they deserve.

- 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
