Who is Liable for Defective Machinery Accidents?
A machine can fail in numerous ways, including design defects and manufacturing errors. If the machine contained a design defect or manufacturing flaw or if there were inadequate warnings on the product, then you may be able to hold the manufacturer responsible for your accident. Manufacturers, distributors, sellers, and even maintenance companies could all be held accountable under product liability laws. An experienced Philadelphia product liability lawyer will need to investigate all aspects of your accident to determine who is ultimately responsible for your accident—and your injuries. In some cases there may be multiple parties responsible for your accident.
Unfortunately, manufacturers rarely admit that their machine has an inherent defect in the design or construction. They may shift blame to the consumer or state that the product was not used in the manner in which it was intended. These tactics are designed to reduce the manufacturer’s liability and deflect blame. At Golomb & Honik, we don’t let manufacturer’s hide behind these smoke screens. We fight aggressively to expose design flaws and product defects, so dangerous and defective machines are removed from circulation.
Whether a machine has a design flaw, is prone to a manufacturing defect, or lacks adequate warnings, our attorneys have more than three decades of success leading product liability cases backed up by the resources and the will to challenge the companies who exercise negligence in putting defective machines into the hands of consumers and workers.
