New Jersey Machinery Defects Lawyer & Products Liability Attorneys
For workers who work with, or near, heavy industrial and manufacturing equipment, a healthy respect for what those machines can do to you is always a first step toward keeping safe. But, sometimes, even if you know what you need to do to remain safe, it will not be enough to protect you.
When machinery is defective, people can suffer grave injuries or death. This is true even when all safety procedures are followed.
Defects can occur in several different fashions, including:
- Failure to warn — When there is an insufficient warning of a specific danger, the owner may be liable for any injuries caused by that danger.
- Manufacturing defect — The piece of equipment may have been manufactured in a way that varies from the original design and that results in increased danger to the operator or others.
- Design defect — The machinery may have been designed in such a way that some danger was overlooked.
