Since the Industrial Revolution arrived in the United States in the late 18th century, factories and their equipment have presented many dangers for workers. While industrial equipment has generally become safer over the years, there are unfortunately many serious accidents involving dangerous industrial equipment each year, which result in devastating injuries and death.
If you were injured or if a loved one died because of faulty equipment at work, an experienced product liability lawyer at Cline Farrell Christie Lee & Bell will be happy to provide a free case evaluation and advise you as to your legal options.
While accidents involving dangerous and defective industrial equipment happen in many different environments, the following are two common workplaces where they occur:
- Manufacturing plants: Factories sometimes have dangerous or defective machinery that can cause serious injury or death to the workers who have to operate them. When conveyor belts, saws, sanders, lathe machines, boilers, forklifts, bulldozers, valves, and other equipment malfunction, our attorneys have the experience necessary to evaluate and pursue your claim.
- Construction sites: Unfortunately, construction sites are often places of devastating injuries and death. For example, a defective crane, defective scaffolds, unsafe saws and nail guns, malfunctioning backhoes and other construction equipment can cause serious injury and death.
