Defective Equipment Injuries

Work Injury Attorneys in Philadelphia, PA

Workers who operate and work in close proximity to industrial equipment and machinery are at risk of serious injury or even death if it malfunctions in any way. Defects in the design or manufacturing process of a piece of equipment can make it inherently dangerous to use, even if workers are properly trained and safety protocol is followed to the letter. When defective equipment causes harm, the manufacturer or other party responsible for the defect should be held accountable.

Marciano & MacAvoy, P.C. handles complex product liability lawsuits against manufacturers of industrial, agricultural, manufacturing, construction, and other equipment across Pennsylvania. These cases can be challenging, as identifying and exposing a defect may require technical knowledge of the piece of equipment itself and the way it should have been designed or manufactured. Fortunately, our Philadelphia work injury lawyers have access to experts in these fields. We have the resources to investigate and build compelling cases for victims of defective equipment at the workplace.

To find out how we can help you, please call (215) 608-2183 or contact us online to arrange your free consultation. We’re available 24/7 to help.

Types of Equipment Defects

Why did the equipment malfunction or break down? This is one of the most important questions to answer in a workplace injury claim involving defective equipment. By carefully investigating the accident itself and also the maintenance record of the piece of equipment, not to mention any history of previous accidents with that equipment, the underlying cause can be determined. The equipment may need to be closely monitored or disassembled completely. We will do whatever it takes to find the answers you’re looking for.

The following are examples of situations that could cause equipment accidents and injuries:

  • A defective design that renders a piece of equipment inherently and excessively dangerous
  • A manufacturing defect that causes the equipment to malfunction even when it is used properly
  • Improper instructions for use or a lack of warning labels
  • Improper or inadequate maintenance and repairs
  • Operation of equipment by untrained or inexperienced personnel
  • Operating equipment while under the influence of alcohol or drugs

When equipment defects cause serious personal injuries or the wrongful deaths of workers, our Philadelphia work injury attorneys are here to set things right. We will identify at-fault parties and pursue the full compensation you deserve to start to put your life back on track.
