Defective Machinery and Workplace Accidents
Many large-scale facilities and workplaces rely on machines that require routine maintenance and inspection to perform properly and safely. When defects are present, or when appropriate safety features are either removed or not built in, severe injuries can occur to the users of these machines. Defective machinery may include:
- Back-end loaders
- Elevators and escalators
- Farm equipment
- Tree and logging machines
- Coal and coal mine machinery
- Railroad cars and machinery
- Industrial equipment
Injuries that are the result of defective machinery can range from fractures, broken bones and burns to brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and other severe and fatal injuries. Victims can spend weeks or months trying to recover from their injuries, or they may not recover at all. The compensation that you receive may never fully restore what was lost in your workplace injury, but it can help you pay for your expenses.
