Dangerous and Defective Equipment
We Protect Your Rights When Defective or Dangerous Equipment Cause An Injury
Poorly maintained industrial equipment and heavy machinery at worksites can cause serious injuries or death to those that are using the equipment, and even those around them. Even if an industrial machine is properly maintained by its owner, it may be inherently unsafe due to a dangerous design defect. For example, if an industrial machine is designed in a way that creates an unreasonable risk of harm to its user, and a safer alternative design was available at the time the machine was built, the manufacturer may be liable for injuries caused by the dangerous design. After a serious construction or industrial accident, investigation may reveal the equipment itself was fundamentally unsafe. In some cases, similar accidents have occurred before but profit-focused manufacturers have failed to address the known risk and continuously put workers at risk.
Austin Pedestrian Accidents And Your Rights
