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.
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
