Defective Machinery or Products
Consumers trust that the products that they are purchasing are generally safe for use. Even dangerous items come with safety warnings and guidelines. However, more and more people are sustaining injuries due to products that are defective or unknowingly dangerous, resulting in serious injuries.
At the Whittier area office of Dixon & Daley, LLP, we are highly knowledgeable of product liability law, which governs the handling of cases involving defective products that have caused injuries. Whether the product was recalled or not, you may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer of a defective product or other parties whose negligence contributed to the injury. Using more than 40 years of experience in the area of personal injury, our attorneys work diligently to determine who is ultimately liable for the losses you have suffered and take swift action against them to ensure you are made whole.
Any type of product can have a defect. Our firm handles a wide variety of product liability cases involving:
- Auto defects
- Seat belts
- Children’s toys
- Baby products
- Medical devices
When machines and equipment are defective and malfunction, the injuries can be extremely severe. Crush injuries, broken bones, amputations and even death can result. Whether the machinery was in a workplace, home or other location, it is essential that you take action against the manufacturer and any other parties whose negligence contributed to your injuries. Our firm can assist you in filing a personal injury claim based upon the defect in the machinery.
Defects In The Workplace
If the injuries you sustained due to the malfunction of, or defect in machinery or equipment occurred at work, our firm can help. We have handled numerous workers’ compensation cases, including situations in which a worker was injured on-the-job by defective machinery or equipment. In these cases, the injured employee has rights to workers’ compensation benefits, but may also file a third-party civil claim for damages against the manufacturer, retailer, and supplier of the machine or equipment. In addition, under certain circumstances, the employee may also file a third-party civil claim against the employer. The lawyers at Dixon & Daley, LLP, have the experience and knowledge to identify and purse all potential claims in these complex cases, and will fight for all damages and benefits allowed under California law. We handle BOTH workers’ compensation and civil third-party actions for damages.
