Handling Defective Machinery Claims in Erie and Pittsburgh
Our law firm’s work injury attorneys have extensive experience handling defective machinery claims, involving:
- Punch presses
- Drill presses
Regardless of the type of equipment involved in the work-related accident, we will take great care to find out who was responsible and will take appropriate action.
Who Was Responsible for the Machine Accident?
Investigation is particularly critical in machinery claims. If we determine who is responsible, this could expand your chances of recovering benefits beyond workers’ compensation. Our legal team will seek to determine if someone at the work site removed guards or tampered with safety switches. Insufficient safety protection is often at the heart of these cases. In other cases, the machinery may have been poorly maintained, and the employer is responsible.
Sometimes, our investigation reveals that the case is truly a defective product case, which is a type of personal injury case. If we discover that the manufacturer of the equipment designed it poorly, or that there were manufacturing defects, we will take action against the manufacturer to maximize your compensation. This may be in addition to the workers’ compensation we will help you obtain.
