We have helped families affected by catastrophic Injuries caused by defective equipment.
In Kentucky, workers’ compensation is the sole remedy between injured workers and their employers. However, a work injury caused by defective or unsafe equipment may be prosecuted directly against the manufacturer, even while a worker or his/her family receives workers’ compensation benefits. Equipment can be unsafe by its design, or by unsafe manufacture, or improper maintenance. We have successfully represented clients who have suffered catastrophic injuries caused by rental equipment or by equipment belonging to a separate company. We have engaged knowledgeable engineers, college even professors and cross-examined equipment owners and manufacturers. These cases have taken us from Nashville all the way to Sacramento.
