Manufacturers of industrial equipment such as power tools, electrical equipment and machinery are held to the same standards for safe design, manufacture and installation as manufacturers of consumer products in the United States. Workers using industrial equipment must be provided proper instructions for safe use and warnings of potential hazards. If a worker suffers an injury on the job while using factory equipment or power tools, he or she may have a legitimate claim for compensation from the negligent manufacturer, installer or property owner responsible for maintaining the equipment. The additional compensation is in addition to New Jersey Workers’ Compensation you qualify for.
Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow & McElroy, LLP, is one of the state’s leading New Jersey personal injury law firms in litigation to help injured workers recover full and fair compensation for their injuries. We have extensive experience in settlements and verdicts related to industrial product liability, with a record of some of the most significant recoveries in the state.
Lawsuits against manufacturers or property owners for compensation for workplace injuries are referred to as third-party claims. They are different from and are handled independently of Workers’ Compensation claims. We have earned our reputation for excellence by being selective about the third-party cases we handle. If you feel your work accident was the result of defective or dangerous equipment, allow us to examine the circumstances of your case and explain your options. If your case has merit and you hire us to represent you, we will work aggressively to pursue the maximum money damages you are entitled to.
