What Causes Most Defective Machinery Accidents at Brooklyn Workplaces?

Power tools, construction equipment, and other pieces of heavy machinery can be dangerous for a number of reasons.

Sometimes it’s because of the way they were designed or manufactured. Other times, it’s due to a company’s failure to provide adequate safety instructions or warnings. Some heavy equipment accidents happen because employers cut corners on inspection, maintenance, and repair to cut costs.

Some of the most commonly reported causes of defective machinery accidents include:

  • Machines that are inherently unsafe because of a design defect
  • Machines or pieces of equipment that were not assembled or built properly
  • Machines that lack necessary safeguards or safety features
  • Safety equipment, including gloves, masks, and goggles, aren’t provided to workers
  • Failure to regularly inspect machines for potential hazards or defects
  • Failure to fix defects or malfunctioning components
  • Refusal to remove unsafe or defective equipment from a worksite

If an employer intentionally disregarded safety issues or refused to fix or replace a piece of defective machinery, you may have the right to take legal action against them. Similarly, you could have a legitimate claim against a manufacturer, property owner, business, or negligent third party.

Our Brooklyn workplace accident lawyers can help you determine all possible courses of action for financial recovery.

Defective Work Equipment Can Cause Catastrophic Injuries

Whether you work on a construction site, in manufacturing, agriculture, or another industry, the machines you use on a daily basis are fairly dangerous.

If they’re defective or otherwise unsafe, the potential for devastation and harm is quite high.

Injuries that can result include:

These and other injuries can also be fatal and result in wrongful death. Always seek medical care immediately after an accident involving defective machinery in Brooklyn or other NYC boroughs. Prompt care can prevent your injuries from getting worse or developing complications. Your medical record can also be used to establish a causal link between the workplace accident and your trauma.
