Defective industrial equipment can lead to injury or death

Florida workers in factories, power plants, refineries and similar industrial settings face safety risks on a daily basis that most other workers can only imagine. The machinery and other equipment industrial employees work with can cause catastrophic injury or death if it is defectively designed or is not accompanied by adequate safety warnings. Workers can be, and sometimes are, crushed, burned, maimed or killed by the machinery in their workplaces.

When a workplace tragedy is caused by defective industrial equipment, the injured worker -- or the family of a deceased worker -- may wish to investigate the possibility of seeking damages through a product liability lawsuit. Under the law, if equipment is unreasonably dangerous when put to its intended use, the manufacturer, designer or installer of the equipment may be held liable. Industrial equipment can be unreasonably dangerous due to a design defect, a manufacturing defect or an insufficient warning of the inherent risks.

These cases are complex. They are also defended aggressively by the manufacturers and their insurance companies. At the law firm of Kurzban Kurzban Weinger Tetzeli & Pratt P.A., our lawyers have built a successful practice representing workers and their families whose lives have been turned upside down by a serious industrial accident. We work closely with expert witnesses who are familiar with the design of the machinery involved and similar equipment in the field, and who can present testimony as to the defective nature of the design at issue. We also work closely with the victim's physicians and other professionals to make a compelling case to the jury for just compensation.
