Los Angeles Heavy Equipment Accidents Attorney
Representation for Heavy Equipment Accidents in the Los Angeles area
Serious accidents can occur when cranes, tractors and other heavy equipment malfunction. Bone-crushing injuries and severed limbs can result. Where the accident is the result of a defect in the equipment, whether a design flaw, manufacturing defect or failure to warn of risks, the injured parties have a claim for damages. These claims can be complicated. It is often necessary to identify the possible defendants through a several tiered corporate structure and then to refute efforts to shift the blame to others.
It is recommended that persons suffering injury contact a Los Angeles Harbor Industrial Machinery Accident Lawyer for effective help in obtaining compensation.

Legal Theories of Compensation
Where the manufacturer represents in its marketing that heavy equipment is supposed to be able to perform a function, the equipment must be able to do so to reasonable standards or manufacturer is liable for breach of warranty. If the equipment causes injury to others due to a defect in the design or manufacturing or marketing, the company is strictly liable for damages under California law.
