DEFECTIVE INDUSTRIAL MACHINERY ACCIDENTS AND INJURIES
For the men and women working throughout northeast Ohio’s manufacturing and labor industries, there are countless risks that simply come with the job. Although employers are required to enforce numerous safety laws and standards, defective or faulty machinery and equipment can, and often does, result in life-changing injuries to Ohio laborers.
Making The Workplace A Safer Environment For All Employees
At Robin J. Peterson Company, LLC, we have seen all types of product and equipment failures that have left workers and their families dealing with severe injuries, stacks of bills and the difficulties of adjusting to drastically different lives. Whether you or a loved one works in auto manufacturing, the rubber or steel industry, or another field, we have the experience helping injured workers just like you pursue compensation.
Heavy equipment accidents can happen anyplace, at any time. When it comes to defective products and machinery, common types of cases we see involve:
- Defective safety or emergency shut-off switches and devices
- Unattended or improperly guarded machines
- Machines rendered unsafe due to misuse, a lack of maintenance or other factors
- Inadequate warning labels
- Defective designs
- Manufacturing defects
- Faulty personal protection equipment
- Electrical failure that may result in shock or burns
Whether injury arose from a machinery defect to an oversight in workplace safety and supervision, there is always a common factor in all the workers’ compensation cases we handle: the loss of a family’s sense of safety and security. At Robin J. Peterson Company, LLC, it’s our job to help families get it back.
