Is A Defective Product Responsible For Your Injuries?
Construction workers rely on the equipment they use to function properly at all times. Failure to do so can cause an injury when no worker is at fault. Defects in the design or manufacture of a piece of equipment or the failure to warn of certain likely risks can cause a manufacturer to be liable for injuries caused by those defects or failures to warn.
