A large number of industrial and construction accidents in New Jersey are caused by defective equipment. The victims of these accidents may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, and in some cases, additional compensation for physical and emotional suffering. Defects can occur in the design, manufacture or use of products.
Obtaining fair compensation is not always easy though. Insurance companies for employers often try to keep their claim payouts to a minimum. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury because of defective equipment in the workplace, you may need an attorney to help you obtain all of the medical care and compensation you deserve.
In a free consultation, Forman & Cardonsky can provide you with honest assessment of your case and discuss your legal options. If we represent you, we will work to help you obtain maximum compensation for your financial losses and suffering.
As we all know, factories and construction sites are dangerous places. Manufacturers of production equipment and construction tools are supposed to provide safeguards to minimize the possibility of accidents, and employers are supposed to provide adequate training in the safe use of the equipment. Unfortunately, these precautions are not always taken.
Accidents can result from:
Cases involving defective equipment often involve both a workers’ compensation and a third-party claim against the manufacturer or service provider. This can dramatically increase the amount of compensation that can be obtained.
