Defective Machinery Lawyers in Rogersville

Experienced Lawyer For Defective Machinery Injuries

Not every on-the-job injury in Tennessee is a workers’ compensation issue. If dangerous or defective machinery is to blame, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit as well.

You can still get workers’ compensation payments, but you may be able to get further payments from the true wrongdoer responsible: the makers of the machinery, engineers or mechanics who failed to take proper care of the machinery that caused your accident.

A Civil Trial Specialist For Manufacturing Injuries

At the Stapleton Law Office, we will look at every angle of your case. We will interview witnesses, review accident reports and investigate the scene of the accident. Our work might reveal that defective machinery is the true cause of your injury.

If you have been hurt on the job, talking with an attorney is the best way to learn about a products liability lawsuit. Your attorney may tell you that there are several ways that defective machinery can cause an industrial accident:

  • Explosions caused by improper venting
  • Failure to provide safety guards/removing safety guards
  • Failure to provide shut-off switches or valves
  • Electrocution/defective voltage detectors
  • Improper warnings on the machinery
  • Design defects
  • Improper maintenance

Why Manufacturing Injuries Occur

From punch presses to conveyor belts to cranes, man lifts and ladders, many Americans work with machinery every day. There are certain risks that come with working with machinery. There are also things that employers, machinery manufacturers, engineers and maintenance crew do to make things worse.

Engineers can create defective machinery that causes injury because it is poorly designed and inherently dangerous. Machinery manufacturers can create defects when building machines. Machinery can also be marketed for a purpose it was not intended, distributed without proper warnings or maintained improperly.

Sometimes, employers even remove guardrails and other protections to speed up productivity. They may also put men on the machine who are not adequately trained for the job.
