Machinery Accident Lawyer

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.
