Equipment Malfunction Accidents in New York

Counsel from a Skilled New York Workers' Comp Lawyer

Some work environments hold a greater potential for serious injury than others. In places where employees must work with heavy machinery, the risk of injury is greater: not only do they have to rely on safe practices by management and fellow employees, they also have to rely on equipment manufacturers' commitment to safe, reliable products. When equipment fails and a worker is injured, action should be taken to recover the relief the victim needs to recover.

For over half a century, our legal at Katz Leidman Grossman Wolfe & Freund team has been advocating for the rights of the injured worker. We have built our reputation on aggressively pursuing the compensation these victims deserve following an injury in the workplace—and in the process have recovered hundreds of millions on their behalf.

Equipment Malfunction and Workers' Comp

Equipment malfunction cases are different than other workers' comp cases because they potentially involve a third party. In these cases, the third party is the equipment manufacturer, whose failure to properly test or produce a safe product could be held as a liability against them.

Common instances in which equipment malfunction is a significant risk:

  • Construction sites
  • Warehouses
  • Factories
  • Piers, ports, loading docs
  • Any task concerning scaffolding/heights

No matter what the environment you were in or what task you were involved with when you were hurt by faulty equipment, our legal team can help. Not only can we help you file and, if necessary, fight for the proper workers' comp relief, but also take the proper steps to hold the equipment manufacturer responsible for your pain and suffering.

You do not have to keep wondering if you are owed compensation for your injury. Contact us today to start exploring your legal options.
