Chicago Dangerous Tool Injury Attorneys

When a worker is injured by an unsafe or defective piece of construction equipment, he or she can pursue compensation through a products liability claim. These claims are separate from a workers' comp claim and involve identifying design defects, manufacturing defects, faulty tools and other negligence. Product designers, manufacturers and even retailers may be held liable for the injuries incurred. The Chicago lawyers at Steinberg Goodman & Kalish have extensive experience handling defective construction equipment claims and protecting the rights of those injured by dangerous tools.

Were You Injured in a Work-Related Product Accident?

Our personal injury attorneys handle third-party liability claims. For example, a construction worker who is injured on the job by defective machinery or equipment may be entitled to pursue a products liability claim in addition to workers' compensation. Types of defective products can include the following:

  • Presses
  • Production belts
  • Crushers
  • Melters
  • Cable reels
  • Hose reels
  • Forklifts and cranes
  • Scaffolding and ladders
  • Backhoes
  • Saws
  • Nail guns
  • Cribs
  • Insufficient warnings or instructions
  • Lack of appropriate guards and controls

Steinberg Goodman & Kalish can thoroughly analyze the injury claim and identify the responsible party or parties. Depending on when and where the defect occurred, the designer, manufacturer, distributor or retailer may be held responsible.

Construction tools undergo in-depth research, development and quality controls prior to reaching consumers. When people are injured by defective construction equipment, our firm can find the particular point where negligence has occurred.

Did You Sustain a Serious Injury From a Defective Machine at Work?

Products liability claims can involve serious injuries such as brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations and de-gloving. These serious injuries generally require future medical treatment, physical therapy, future surgeries and special accommodations to the home. Our firm seeks fair compensation that helps our injured clients adjust to their new financial needs.
