Defects, Inadequate Instruction, or Lack of Warning

Almost all the tools and equipment used in construction are very dangerous, even when they are functioning properly. While product defects can cause serious injuries, the failure to provide warnings about hazards or proper instructions on a tool's safe use can be equally dangerous. The Law Office of John J. Garvey, III can protect your rights no matter what caused your accident. our firm has handled a wide range of complex defective product cases, including:

  • Paper mills
  • Unguarded saws
  • Electric fans
  • Electrical appliances
  • Power tools and equipment
  • Punch presses
  • Farm equipment
  • Welding tools

In some cases, injuries may occur because of problems with the design of a tool, and even if it functioned as intended, it may have caused you to suffer harm because designers failed to take certain factors into account. Tools or equipment may also become defective because of problems during the manufacturing process, causing them to break down and become dangerous. Whether your injury occurred because of design defects, manufacturing defects, or failure to warn, Attorney John Garvey can help you pursue compensation from a negligent manufacturer or other liable parties.

Do not Rule Out a Third Party Claim

Many injured workers believe that they are limited to receiving workers' compensation benefits after a workplace injury. However, other options for pursuing compensation may also be available in these cases. If a product manufacturer, designer, or distributor is responsible for injuries that occurred because of defective tools used in the workplace, you can file a separate personal injury claim for additional damages, including lost wages and medical expenses. You may also be able to receive compensation for your pain and suffering, which would not be available through workers' compensation.
