Defective Industrial Machine Accidents
Call a New Jersey Product Liability Attorney
Product liability laws relating to industrial machines are, by and large, the same as the laws that apply to regular consumer products. Thus, if you have been injured by a dangerous product, you can fight for fair compensation. Common examples of industrial machines include the following:
- Agriculture equipment
- Assembly line
- Industrial robots
- Oil refinery equipment
- Packing and labeling equipment
- Paper mill equipment
- Water wheel
Due to the inherent dangers of being employed at an industrial workplace, defects in these types of machinery is especially problematic—and can result in life-threatening or even fatal injuries to workers who are utilizing them.
Third Party Lawsuits for Workplace Accidents
For those who are injured on the job, the only route for compensation is not necessarily workers’ compensation laws.
If it can be proven that the injury was caused by a defective industrial machine, they may be able to pursue a third-party lawsuit against the designer, manufacturer, or distributor of the product. In such cases, something that can be especially helpful is an understanding of the safety codes and standards implemented by OSHA as it could help to prove that the industrial machine in question did not meet set regulations.
