Aggressive Representation For Injured Construction Workers
When you go to work, you have the expectation that the tools and equipment that your employer provides will be safe for you to use. You should not have to worry about whether you will be dealing with a defective product.
Getting injured by tools and equipment on a construction site is difficult. The injury means you have climbing medical needs, and you are also losing valuable time at work.
If you were injured on a New York construction site, it is important to talk to an attorney who is skilled in workers’ compensation as well as defective product liabilities.
Injuries Caused By Defective Tools
Tools can be defective in their design, the way they were manufactured or in their warning labels. When you are using a tool in the way that it was intended to be used and you suffer an injury, you may have a claim against the tool or equipment manufacturer.
Defective tools and equipment can cause a lot of injuries; especially on a construction site. We can help you with a claim no matter what kind of injury you are facing, including:
- Broken bones
- Severed limbs
- Head injuries
- Scarring and disfigurement
Liability For Defective Tools And Equipment
When you are injured by a defective tool or equipment while you are at work, you may have two claims to pursue. If you were injured at work, you will have a workers’ compensation claim, and if the tool or equipment you were using was defective, you may have a claim against the manufacturer.
