MINNESOTA ATTORNEYS FOR INJURY BY DEFECTIVE EQUIPMENT OR BAD MACHINE
Every day people in Minnesota and throughout the country are seriously injured or killed by a defective machine or bad equipment. Sometimes, a careless manufacturer just puts a greater priority over profits than safety design or quality control of their manufacturing processes. This places the lives of people using the bad equipment or machine in jeopardy. Our MN defective product lawyers have seen many cases of defective products or equipment disfiguring, maiming, electrocuting, and burning innocent people. We take these cases very seriously and will sue the negligent manufacturer of the machine to get fair and complete compensation for our clients.
INJURED BY BAD EQUIPMENT OR MACHINE ACCIDENT ON THE JOB – MN LAWYER
If you are injured in a bad equipment accident or machine accident while you are working in Minnesota, you are entitled to workers compensation benefits, just like you would be if you were injured any other way while on the job. You will be entitled to your MN workers comp benefits regardless of how the accident happened or who was at fault.
WORKERS COMPENSATION AFTER DEFECTIVE MACHINE OR BAD EQUIPMENT ACCIDENT IN MN
Your workers comp insurance benefits will include most of your lost wages, medical bills, and a number or other benefits, including a direct payment to you if you have suffered a permanent injury. Workers compensation payments for a machine accident is helpful, but it is limited and does not provide complete compensation. In addition to MN workers comp benefits, however, you may also be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer of the bad machine or equipment. Our defective product attorneys in MN have handled many cases where our client receives both workers comp and additional compensation from the third party that was at fault. Workers Compensation benefits are limited, so to be fully compensated, you need to pursue the equipment or machine manufacturer’s insurance as well. In addition, the defective equipment or machine manufacturer may have to repay the workers comp insurer for the accident, which will help reduce your employer’s workers comp rates.
Our attorneys’ primary focus is to get you fair and complete compensation for your injuries.

DEFECTIVE PRODUCT LIABILITY IN MN
Minnesota has strict product liability laws that hold manufacturers and sellers liable when their defective product, defective equipment or defective machine injures someone. This makes sense for several reasons. Two of the primary reasons are: 1) the manufacturer is in the best position to make sure they have designed and manufactured the product, equipment or machine safely, and knowing that they will have to pay for the damages if they injure people is a good incentive to make sure they don’t make defective products or defective equipment in the future; and 2) the manufacturer is in a better position to pay for the medical bills and other costs for the person injured by a bad product or equipment because that is the business they are in and they can spread the cost over the many sales that they make – versus the unlucky injured person having to pay the whole cost themselves.
