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, Freund & Herman 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
- 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.
