Industrial Machinery And Equipment Injuries
Compensation for damages and losses due to workplace injuries are not always limited to the benefits of workers’ compensation. If your injury was caused by dangerous machinery or equipment, you may be able to seek damages from the companies that manufactured, rented or serviced the equipment. The operator of the equipment or machinery may be liable if negligence was a factor.
At Alan M. Tanenbaum, P.A., we will seek to successfully represent injured workers, operators, or bystanders against responsible parties for the physical, financial and personal losses caused by dangerous or defective machines and workplace equipment, or by the negligent operation of cranes, equipment, or machinery.
South Carolina Heavy Equipment Accident Lawyer
Machinery and equipment accidents can often involve liability for negligence in the design, repair, or operation of the equipment involved. In many cases, a defective, poorly serviced or otherwise unsafe tool triggered the accident. In some cases, a products liability claim may be warranted.
At home, defective power tools can also lead to serious injuries like amputation, disfigurement and even death. More than 900,000 accidents with power tools sent people to hospitals in one year alone, according to a survey of the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Table saws, handsaws, nail guns and even power drills have seriously injured users.
