Workplace Injury Cases
Workplace injury cases can be complicated, especially when workplace equipment malfunctions and causes the injury. This situation is a basis for a worker’s compensation case against your employer. In addition, you may have a case for product liability against the manufacturer of the defective equipment. If you suffered a serious injury at work, don’t go at it alone. Call our injury attorneys for your worker’s compensation case.
Defective Products/ Product Liability
A product is legally defective if it contains a risk of harm that the average consumer would fail to expect. A defect can be a “design” flaw, where something went wrong in the manufacturing process and the original design was not followed. Therefore, anyone who is involved in putting defective products into the stream of commerce is liable for the injuries they caused. And as a result, the manufacturer is liable if the plaintiff can prove the defect and that they were harmed because of it.
Drugs harm tens of thousands of Americans every year. As a result, holding the manufacturers of such drugs liable plays an important role in preventing the release of new, dangerous drugs into the market. If you or a loved one experience harm due to drug use, please call us.
When you engage in an ultra-hazardous activity and someone is harmed, you are, as a result, liable no matter how careful you had been. For example, the manufacturing or storage of high explosives, keeping exotic pets such as a lion or tiger, production of nuclear energy, etc. So, if you or someone you care about has been harmed by someone else’s ultra-hazardous activity, call J. Murphy Firm first.
