San Jose Unsafe Equipment Injury Attorneys

Call Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP – (800) 900-0863

Equipment of all kinds, whether it is for personal use or is required to be used at one's job, is manufactured to be safe when operated correctly. All products must be deemed safe by manufacturers in order to protect unassuming consumers and employees. In the event that injury arises, it may be the result of negligence, either in properly warning a consumer or other equipment operator of some sort of risk, or in the very design of the piece of equipment.

Who can be held liable for my injuries?

Unsafe equipment can result in a product liability or premises liability incident. If product liability is to blame, then the equipment itself poses a danger to anyone who uses it, regardless of whether or not safety instructions are followed. This danger can result from failing to inform the equipment user of a potential risk, or may even be the result of a completely unforeseen risk. In cases such as this, the manufacturer of the equipment can be held liable for all damages that the faulty and / or dangerous equipment causes.

Premises liability and unsafe equipment results when a building owner, usually a company or some other type of business, fails to properly maintain equipment, and the equipment, consequently, does not work the way it should. If proper training is not given to employees on how to use the equipment, then that responsibility falls on the shoulders of businesses or premises owners as well. Regardless, it is the duty of employers that their employees are safe at all times, especially when using equipment that could pose a potential risk of injury.

Unsafe equipment accidents can result in significant injuries, including but not limited to:

  • Burns
  • Broken bones
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Lacerations

Seek Compensation, Obtain Justice

Unsafe equipment injuries can often impair a person from being able to function appropriately at their job, thus causing the person to miss work and lose wages. Even more significant is whether or not the person is injured to such a degree that quality of life is seriously impacted. In any event, the negligence of others who contributed to the injury should be held liable for their actions and accept the consequences associated with these actions.
