Industrial Accidents Caused by Defective Equipment
Workplace accidents that cause injuries or fatalities need to be carefully reviewed by an attorney with experience in cases involving industrial accidents.
Some workers injured in industrial accidents may be able to obtain financial compensation in addition to workers' compensation; others cannot. Your legal options are not determined by the type or severity of your injury, but by who or what caused you harm.
The attorneys at Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder, PC, have decades of experience representing clients in industrial accident and equipment injury claims. We will review your case and tell you directly what options are available to you.
What Is a Third-Party Claim?
In general, if your on-the-job injury was caused by your employer or a co-worker, you are limited to workers' compensation benefits. However, if a third party — someone other than your employer or a co-worker — caused the accident, you may be able to pursue additional compensation by filing a third-party claim.
Our law firm was won millions of dollars in financial compensation for clients injured by third parties, including makers of dangerous and defective equipment. Were you injured by a machine that lacked proper safety shielding? Were you hurt by a power tool or heavy equipment that didn't have a kill switch? We would like the opportunity to talk to you about the accident and explain your legal options.
Representing Workers and Others
In addition to representing injured workers, we represent others who were injured in industrial accidents. For example, if you were hit by debris falling at a construction site, made ill by toxic emissions from a manufacturing facility, or run over by a construction vehicle, we may be able to help you obtain financial compensation for damages.
