Faulty Machines Can Cause Devastating Injuries
Construction projects commonly require the use of large and heavy machinery. Implements like power saws, pneumatic tools, jackhammers, forklifts, cranes and propane heaters are inherently dangerous to workers who use this equipment and anyone in the vicinity.
Accidents involving machinery and power tools tend cause disabling or disfiguring injuries, such as lacerations or shrapnel injuries, severed fingers or limbs, crush injuries, eye injuries, serious burns or electric shock injuries.
If you or a loved one was seriously injured in a construction accident because of faulty machinery, the attorneys at Sakkas, Cahn & Weiss, LLP, can help you pursue damages for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other expenses. You didn’t deserve what happened to you, but we can help you pursue the compensation you need to heal. Call us today at 212-571-7171.
A Third Party May Be Liable For Your Construction Injury
Even if your employer provided a safe work environment, a third party may have contributed to an injury suffered at the building site. For example, if you were injured due to faulty or unsafe machinery, you still may be able to file a lawsuit against:
- The manufacturer of the machinery
- The company that assembles or services the machinery
- A contractor who knowingly provided machinery that was broken or had safety features disarmed
- A subcontractor who brought defective machinery to the site which injured others
There are many parties involved in a construction injury and sorting out liability can be complex. At Sakkas, Cahn & Weiss, LLP, we will work closely with you to determine who may be at fault. We have experience in product liability litigation, holding manufacturers accountable for design defects or manufacturing defects that resulted in injuries.
We Know How To Hold Them Accountable
In one successful case, we obtained $200,000 for a Nassau County man injured by a table saw that was defective and had partially amputated the tips of three of his fingers. In another case, we reached a $260,000 verdict for an immigrant whose arm was trapped in a milling machine, causing a degloving of his forearm and several fractures.
