Fort Campbell Work Equipment Accident Attorneys
A substantial number of work accidents are the result of defective equipment. While the victim is entitled to workers’ compensation in these cases, a personal injury claim may also be filed against the equipment manufacturer. At the Haggard Law Office, our attorneys have more than 28 years handling these cases for military personnel at Fort Campbell army post and civilians throughout western Kentucky. When you choose us to represent you, we will take care to investigate and find every opportunity to maximize your compensation.
Defective Factory Machinery, Construction Tools And More
More often than not, these cases involve factory workers hurt by defective punch presses, conveyor belts or other equipment, or construction workers injured by defective cranes, saws, drills, ladder, scaffolding or other equipment. It is important to understand that the definition of defective also applies to work equipment having proper warnings and instructions. For example, chemicals in the workplace need to be properly labeled by the manufacturer if there are dangers present in their use. If there are no warnings and a worker gets hurt, the manufacturer can be held liable for the injuries.
Taking Work Accident Cases To Trial
These cases can get complicated, with one party pointing the finger at another and nobody accepting any responsibility. That is why our Fort Campbell work equipment accident lawyers always plan for trial. In a list prepared by The Kentucky Trial Court Review, Kenneth R. Haggard was included among the top 25 in terms of the number of personal injury cases tried. Our impressive record of success speaks for itself.
