Workplace Injuries Caused by Defective Machinery and Equipment
When people suffer injuries at work, lives are turned upside down. The physical, financial and emotional costs of serious or fatal workplace injuries can be too much for individuals and families to bear.
Kentucky has laws in place to support injured workers and their families in the event of sudden injuries and death, but it can be important for victims to seek legal counsel to ensure they understand their rights and options. At Hay & Knight, PLLC, we offer skilled legal representation to those who have suffered serious injuries or the loss of a loved one due to defective machinery or equipment in the workplace.
Most of our clients live in South Central or Eastern Kentucky, not far from our office in Somerset, but we offer representation across the state for very serious personal injury and wrongful death claims.
Extensive Experience in Products Liability Law
The manufacturers of factory machinery and other tools and equipment for job sites have a duty to ensure their products are safe for use. In many cases, this includes designing adequate safety devices, guards and warning systems as part of the machinery. When manufacturers fail in this basic duty, workers and their families can pay the ultimate price.
Our lawyers are experienced in helping individuals and families seek justice and recover compensation from manufacturers through product liability claims. For over 30 years, we have worked with our clients one-on-one to understand the full extent of their losses before preparing cases designed to secure maximum compensation.
A successful products liability claim for defective factory equipment or defective workplace equipment may result in compensation for:
- Medical expenses, past, and future
- Long-term care and rehabilitative costs
- Lost wages
- And more
Very few attorneys have the skills and resources it takes to investigate complex product liability matters and pursue claims against large companies. When you entrust your case to Hay & Knight, PLLC, you can rest assured that it will be handled by an experienced team of litigators that has a long history of prevailing against major companies.
