Louisiana Heavy Equipment Accidents

Resolving Accidents Caused By Faulty Equipment in the Workplace

Most job sites in the industrial or construction industry require daily use of large machinery and heavy duty equipment. On occasion, the equipment can malfunction, which can cause life-changing, catastrophic injuries to the operator as well as those in the vicinity.

At Plotkin, Vincent & Jaffe, we can handle a wide range of complex product liability claims, including those involving equipment malfunctions.

We can evaluate the details of your faulty equipment lawsuit to determine whether the equipment was unreasonably dangerous and the malfunction was related to a defect in the design, construction, or composition of the equipment. We also will evaluate whether there were inadequate warnings.

Equipment or products that have been known to malfunction during use:

  • Drills
  • Motors
  • Welding equipment
  • Forklifts
  • Power tools
  • Construction machinery
  • Scaffolds
  • Cranes

Common Causes of Equipment Malfunction

Equipment malfunction can be caused by a variety of reasons, namely negligence during the manufacturing or design process.

The manufacturers could have produced a product with defects or failed to provide adequate instructions on the proper handling or operation of the equipment. Certain heavy-duty equipment can only handle a certain amount of workload, anything beyond can lead to malfunctions.

Equipment that is poorly maintained or worn out can also lead to malfunctions.

Heavy Equipment Injuries

Heavy equipment accidents or deaths are very common in workplaces that involve construction, manufacturing, and food processing. When heavy-duty equipment malfunctions, this can cause severe injuries, including:

  • Amputations
  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Severe burns
  • Other permanent disabilities

Seriously injured victims are entitled to recover medical costs, lost wages, emotional distress, and other expenses associated with the injury.
