Injuries Caused By Defective Equipment

When working with power tools at home or at your work, you likely take every precaution to ensure your safety and the safety of others. However, even the most routine home repairs or on-the-job projects can result in serious injuries if the product you're using has inherent defects or design flaws. Perhaps some of the safety features were missing or malfunctioning, and this led to a serious accident.

Manufacturers and construction companies must take proper care to ensure their equipment remains in good working order. If such companies have cut corners, or conclude that the accident was caused by your own negligence, you probably feel powerless to stand up for your rights.

Since 1968, Lamkin, Van Eman, Trimble & Dougherty has advocated for workers and consumers who have been injured by defective power tools and industrial equipment. Our years of experience and track record of favorable outcomes for these accident victims have taught us never to take an accident report at face value. We will get to the bottom of what happened and protect your right to full and fair compensation.

Dealing With Injuries Resulting From Workplace Equipment Failures

After an on-the-job injury takes place, many supervisors conclude that a worker made a mistake or that a freak accident occurred. In fact, when we investigate workplace accidents at construction sites or in factories, we often find that defective equipment and dangerous tools were to blame. Sometimes, the problem was caused by another worker's removal of a safety guard.

Whatever the case, we will take the appropriate steps to recover compensation from all negligent parties, whether the manufacturer, your employer or a third-party. Taking on these claims can feel overwhelming on your own. Luckily, we have more than 45 years of experience helping injured workers protect their rights following on-the-job injuries caused by defective or dangerous equipment.
