Defective Industrial Equipment

Texas Personal Injury Attorney

Industrial workplace injuries and fatalities due to defective equipment can result in product liability cases that can become long and complex matters. In addition to addressing severe injuries caused by improper safety guards and dangerous conditions, we work hard to find out who is potentially liable to provide a source for compensation; it involve the company, equipment manufacturers and several insurance companies.

Contact Hampton & King to discuss your case with a knowledgeable defective equipment accident lawyer.

Skilled in handling defective equipment accidents

Faulty industrial equipment can result in explosions, electrocutions or fires, and workers often suffer crushed limbs, amputations and other catastrophic injuries.

The law firm of Hampton & King provides the legal resources and experience required to effectively handle defective equipment claims involving:

  • Defective lathes, presses and drilling equipment
  • Faulty safety guards
  • Failure to follow safety standards
  • Forklift accidents
  • Defective valves
  • Platform and railing defects

Defective equipment cases differ from other workplace claims in that liability rests with the third-party manufacturers of the defective equipment. Employers, who are protected by workers compensation insurance, are usually immune from suit. Often, the only opportunity for an injured worker to receive adequate compensation is from a third party.
