Machine and Tool Defects
A significant number of different jobs simply could not be performed without the use of modern tools and machinery. While they enable workers to accomplish tasks that were previously impossible, they carry with them many noteworthy dangers.
When tools and machinery are flawed by design or manufacturing defects, or when a malfunction occurs, the same individuals who depend upon them are at risk of sustaining serious injuries that may threaten their lives and livelihoods. The most pressing concerns in the aftermath of an accident are related to physical health, but quickly the emotional and financial pressures will also make themselves known. After an injury, you are likely facing hefty medical bills, you may be missing time from work and having trouble covering your daily expenses.
If you have been hurt by a defective or malfunctioning tool, then a skilled and experienced lawyer can help you to seek compensation from the manufacturer of the failed device.

Common Injuries Caused by Defects and Malfunctions
Each tool or piece of machinery is built with a different set of constituent parts and a different aim. Accordingly, each represents its own unique threat to those handling it and those nearby. To put into perspective the wide variety of potential perils, consider the following injuries that may occur:
- Amputation of hands/feet
- Amputation of fingers/toes
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Severe lacerations
- Bone fractures
If you have suffered from these – or any other- injuries due to an improperly functioning tool or machine, LaMarca Law Group, P.C. can help you get the compensation you need to cover your medical expenses and other injuries.
About Defective Machine and Tool Cases
When a machine or tool proves defective enough to cause injuries, you can seek compensation to recover financial damages for your medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering and more. The legal way to seek this compensation is likely through a product liability claim. There are two main types of product liability cases that deal with the defects responsible for your injuries. A design defect deals with the way that a product was intended to be – in other words, the safety of the product was jeopardized as a result of the way it was designed. A manufacturing defect puts a bad product into the marketplace due to something that went wrong during the assembly of the finished product. Unfortunately, most of these defects are results of either the corporations responsible for design or manufacture cutting corners.
Big businesses need to be held responsible for the injuries they cause to hard-working people who suffer as a result of their faulty products. If you or a loved one has been hurt by a defective tool or machine, LaMarca Law Group, P.C. can help you recover the compensation you deserve for your injuries by taking legal action. We utilize all of our resources to ensure that you get the maximum amount available to you by law.
