Chicago Faulty Machinery Lawyers
Illinois Product Liability Attorneys
Faulty machinery can be incredibly dangerous, causing serious injuries or even death. Although technological advances in machinery have made it easier to complete certain tasks, defective machinery can put the lives of innocent people at risk. When a manufacturer, distributor or retailer allows a dangerous product, including faulty machinery and defective tools, to enter the marketplace, the responsible party may be liable under product liability laws for any damages, injuries or deaths that result.
Product liability laws are highly complex and require a detailed legal and factual analysis. An experienced personal injury lawyer that is knowledgeable in product liability laws, like the Chicago personal injury attorneys at Ankin Law Offices, LLC, can advise injured persons on whether they may have a claim against the manufacturer, distributor, retailer or other responsible party for any damages, injuries or deaths that occurred as a result of faulty and defective machinery.
Common Injuring-Causing Machinery
All machinery can be somewhat dangerous, but certain types of machinery, due to the nature of the machine or mechanism, are more dangerous than others, such as:
- Automobiles and other motor vehicles
- Bulldozers or other construction equipment
- Ladders or scaffolding
- Production line equipment, such as conveyor belts
- Power tools, such as saws and nail guns
- Landscape equipment
- Farm equipment and machinery
Types of Recovery in Product Liability Lawsuit
If a plaintiff can show that the faulty machinery was defective and that the manufacturer or other responsible party is liable, the plaintiff can recover damages that may include:
- Compensation for injuries or deaths
- Medical expenses (both past and future)
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Other financial awards, including compensation to family members
