Many workplace injuries are caused by defective production tools. You are entitled to expect that the machinery and instruments you use to do your job are safe and without risk of danger to your well-being. Unfortunately some machinery is poorly designed or may not have been maintained.
At Van Gilder & Trzynka, P.C., we represent injured workers who have been injured by machinery while on the job. If this is true, you will be entitled to greater benefits then the standard Workers' Compensation settlement. If you or someone you love has suffered a serious injury due to a defective piece of work-related machinery, our attorneys will help you take the appropriate actions to file a Product Liability claim.
In order to effectively pursue a products liability claim, there are several elements to consider. We encourage clients to speak with their co-workers to see if another person has been injured in a similar fashion. It is also important to determine whether or not the employer in question was aware of any defective machinery, and if so, whether or not they had taken the appropriate steps to repair the equipment, or take it out of production entirely. This is especially important where the employer has made changes to the machinery after a claim has been filed, but before a third-party professional has been out to properly examine the situation.
Call us early in your case so we can take steps to investigate the machinery and protect the evidence necessary for your case.
Once you have been injured, life as you know it is changed. You may no longer be able to go to work. Your medical bills may be causing financial problems. Your doctor may have told you that you can expect to undergo months of expensive physical therapy. Whatever your situation, we are here to help you obtain the fair compensation you deserve.
