Get The Most From Your Defective Equipment Workers’ Compensation Claim
If you are injured on the job by a machine that is defective or unreasonably dangerous, you may be entitled to compensation. The law is complex, and only an experienced attorney can tell you if you have the right to sue the manufacturer.
At Marzzacco Niven & Associates, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, our lawyers are raising a voice as they represent workers who are injured as a result of defective equipment. We offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your case.
When Can I Sue A Manufacturer?
You can sue a manufacturer of work equipment under limited circumstances:
- The machine was manufactured by a company other than your employer.
- The machine was defective in design or manufacture.
- Your employer did not modify the machine.
It’s important to contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible to collect and preserve evidence of liability. Companies are quick to make repairs after a serious accident, and evidence you need to prove your case may be lost.
You are entitled to workers’ compensation regardless of whether the machine was defective. Filing a personal injury lawsuit against the manufacturer would enable you to collect compensation for damages that are not covered by workers’ compensation, such as pain and suffering.
