Defective Machinery And Equipment

Eastern Connecticut attorneys representing workers injured due to unsafe workplace environments

Cutting corners to save money at the expense of safety can have disastrous consequences, particularly in an industrial environment. Dangerous or defective machinery can cause catastrophic injuries, resulting in heavy medical costs, loss of earning power, and other financial impacts.

When a company puts their bottom line above their employees’ safety, their entire workforce is at risk. In pursuing claims involving dangerous or defective equipment and machinery, Anderson Trial Lawyers is committed not just to getting you fair compensation, but also to protecting those in our community from unsafe work environments.

More Than Just Workers’ Comp

Workers’ compensation will offer some financial relief for injuries sustained at work. However, it only covers two-thirds of your normal wages. This sum is often not enough to cover the medical bills resulting from an injury, and it certainly doesn’t compensate you for your pain and suffering and other financial impacts.

If your injuries were caused by an unsafe work environment — such as the use of dangerous, outdated, or broken machinery and equipment — you may be entitled to additional damages beyond workers’ compensation. However, it’s important that you pursue a claim as quickly as possible, since preservation of evidence is crucial to the success of product liability claims.

Building Your Case

We have successfully handled cases arising out of several industrial accidents. Our firm has the necessary resources and knowledge of relevant government and industry regulations — including HAZMAT, OSHA and fire code safety measures — to successfully handle your claim.

We often enlist the knowledge of machinery or equipment experts when investigating the details of your accident. Their findings can serve as key evidence in a trial, or persuade the responsible party to offer a reasonable settlement.

I could not have asked for an easier, stress free way to handle my legal business. I dealt with Mike mostly and it was a pleasure, but the staff was great too! Definitely a positive experience and a PROFESSIONAL I'm glad to have in my circle.

For thirty years, we have never faced a vendor-related contract failure... but it finally happened.We turned to the compassionate team at Anderson and Anderson, for our goal was a resolution that met the needs of clients and agency but didn't turn into something nasty or not reflective of our corporate culture.Chris and his team at Anderson and Anderson were professional, calm and supportive. Through a strong and guiding presence, they helped us successfully negotiate a settlement with a vendor that failed to deliver as promised.While it was a challenge to experience this process, Chris translated the legal-ease and clearly protected our best interests and that of our client. We could not have been more pleased or grateful for his guidance and support.I can clearly envision how he would protect those injured and in need of a skilled advocate. We had to go to court, and other clients may have to do so, as well. Ultimately it really matters who you choose to be your representative: someone who says "they will fight for you," or someone who has a proven record of walking into a courtroom to fight on your behalf.
