What do most employees hope for when they wonder how they're going to make ends meet after they've been injured on the job? Workers' compensation. It helps recovering workers pay their bills and handle insurance claims.
What these workers may not know, however, is that if their injury was caused by a faulty tool or defective piece of machinery, they may be able to receive additional compensation. Manufacturers have a responsibility to make products that are safe for their customers. If they fail to do so and their product injures someone on the job, they may have a product liability case.
Design flaws, tool recalls, and unsafe work equipment can cause serious injuries and even destroy your ability to earn a living. These things are beyond your control, and if you were injured because of a defective product, you know how unfair it feels. You may not be able to return to the same job, and that can jeopardize the quality of life for both you and your family.
