Manufacturers of machinery and equipment must make their products reasonably safe. If they fail to do so and someone is hurt, they can be held legally and financially responsible for the damages caused by their negligence.
The attorneys of Chiariello & Chiariello have achieved significant verdicts and settlements on behalf of people who were injured by dangerous equipment at home, at work and in public spaces. If you were injured by a dangerous product or unsafe equipment, please contact our New York law firm to discuss your case.
Unsafe Construction and Industrial Equipment
We represent clients who were seriously injured by defective construction and industrial equipment, including:
- Nail guns
- Fork lifts
- Devices that lack proper safety guards or cut-off switches
- Improperly constructed scaffolding
We won compensation for a client who was injured when a defective gantry crane knocked him down a 2-story escalator. We also represented a man who was seriously injured in an industrial accident when his head got caught in a piece of equipment that pulled products off a conveyor belt.
We have found that construction contractors and business owners often buy second-hand equipment that does not meet today's safety standards. Many of these defective devices are never serviced or inspected. Our attorneys hold these parties responsible when their negligence causes harm.
Unsafe Consumer Products
Our law firm also represents clients who were injured by dangerous consumer products and equipment, including:
- Power tools
- Household appliances
- Snow throwers
- Cribs and other children's products
Product liability is a hard-fought area of law. Product makers will go to great lengths to avoid responsibility for damages. Our law firm has the experience and skill to get results for our clients in these challenging cases.
