When Defective Equipment Contributes to Accidents

Employees across many industries in Connecticut face potentially hazardous conditions every day. Construction, manufacturing, and other industrial jobs typically involve heavy machinery and powerful equipment.

Sometimes, that equipment poses a danger to workers, especially if it's defective or dangerously designed. Power tools, vehicles, cranes, and assembly line machines fall into this category. Other times, workers depend on certain equipment — for example, harnesses, ladders, and helmets — for their safety. Their health and lives often depend on the equipment's ability to function as it's supposed to.

Understanding Your Rights

After an accident or injury on the job, workers' compensation might not be your only source of financial recovery. You may also be entitled to bring a personal injury lawsuit against any third parties — other than your employer — whose negligence contributed to the accident.

An investigation may reveal that an industrial accident or work injury was related to defective equipment. A personal injury lawsuit against the product manufacturer may be the only way to pursue accountability. In the case of fatal accidents, the surviving family members may have the right to bring a wrongful death claim.
