Today, modern tools and machinery are designed to be as safe as possible to the responsible user. When equipment is manufactured improperly, or contains incorrect instructions, disaster can strike. Faulty machinery presents a steep risk of personal injury or death to even the most careful operator. Unguarded moving parts, lack of appropriate safety devices, and inadequate or incorrect operational warnings and instructions are common indications of negligence, and grounds for legal proceedings.
Even when equipment is manufactured impeccably, danger can arise when careless or highly pressurized work environments are not mindful of worker safety. Often, high volume environments deprioritize the development, implementation, and supervision of safety precautions. In some cases, employees are even instructed to take shortcuts in order to maximize production. Such practices are severely negligent. When workers are injured in these situations, they may feel personally responsible because they followed the instruction of their superiors. However, when employers fail to provide or enforce safety training, or promote a careless work environment, they must shoulder the liability for any and all harm that results as a consequence.
If negligent design or manufacturing of mechanical equipment harmed you, or if you were injured in a work environment that promoted the unsafe use of dangerous machinery, legal action may be an appropriate step. When injuries result from improper manufacturing, maintenance, or operation of machinery, many factors must be assessed to decide how to proceed. The Law Office of Joseph M.
