Attorneys In Jacksonville Represent Florida Workers Injured By Industrial Equipment
Holding Manufacturers And Others Accountable For Your Job-Site Injuries
Many people in Florida may think that if they’ve been injured on the job, their only recourse is to file for workers’ compensation. But if you work in a factory, on a construction site, on a farm, or in any other kind of workplace where you routinely handle industrial equipment and that equipment is the cause of your injury, you have the right to seek damages from the manufacturer.
Our Jacksonville products liability attorneys at Fallgatter Catlin & Varon, P.A., have handled many products liability suits for workers injured by industrial equipment. When that equipment fails to work properly and you’re injured as a result, we can hold the manufacturer liable if the product was poorly designed or constructed, substandard materials were used in the manufacture, or there was a failure to warn about potential dangers. If any of these can be established, we proceed with a products liability suit separate from a workers’ comp claim against your employer. And we fight to obtain the maximum possible recovery for you, whether through settlements or at trial.
Complex Claims Call For Tenacious Representation
Claims involving industrial equipment can be complex: They often involve liability on the part of more than one party. The manufacturer, the distributor and the reseller may all bear some responsibility for the defect that led to your injury. Injuries resulting from defective industrial equipment can be severe and long-lasting, which is why we take the time to investigate the full extent of your injuries and their effect on your future ability to work in deciding upon an amount that will compensate you adequately.
The types of industrial equipment claims we’ve been successful in pursuing include those involving:
- Injuries and wrongful death from defective factory machinery
- Accidents stemming from defective farm equipment
- Exposure to hazardous industrial chemicals
- Construction site accidents involving cranes and conveyors
Most consumer products we use every day are strictly regulated; industrial equipment should be held to the same standard so that workers, trying to earn a living and feed their families, don’t lose a limb or their life in the process. We have the knowledge and experience to go up against big industrial equipment manufacturers when the products they make and you use on the job render you unable to work, perhaps ever again.
