Dangerous And Defective Machines
From small shops and manufacturers to large factories, there are many work environments where employees work on or in close proximity to dangerous machines. Accidents can result in devastating injuries such as amputations, crushing injuries, broken bones and other trauma.
At Ginsberg & O'Connor, P.C., in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, our attorneys have been protecting the rights of injured workers since 1992. While workers’ compensation provides benefits to injured workers, those benefits will not go far in compensating you for everything you have lost.
If the accident was caused by a machine that was defective, unreasonably dangerous or which lacked sufficient warnings, you may have options beyond workers’ compensation.
Recovery Options For Accidents Involving Machines
Manufacturers of industrial machines have a duty to the public to manufacture safe products and to put appropriate warnings on products that come with some risk. If you are injured by a machine that is defective in design, manufacture or warnings, the manufacturer and distributor may be liable. This area of law is known as products liability.
Employers are generally protected from employee lawsuits for injuries resulting from work-related accidents. However, the manufacturers and distributors of machines used in the workplace are not. Our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your case and explain your options.
