Injured by a Defective Machine At Work Minnesota Lawyers
Every day, people throughout the United States are seriously injured or killed by poorly designed or defectively manufactured product or equipment. Too often, a careless corporation takes a shortcut and places a greater priority over profits than they do safe design and quality control of their manufacturing processes. This puts consumers’ lives in jeopardy. Our MN defective product lawyers have seen many cases of defective products disfiguring, maiming and burning innocent people. We take these cases very seriously and our attorneys will sue the negligent manufacturer to get fair and complete compensation for our clients.
INJURED BY EQUIPMENT OR MACHINE ACCIDENT ON THE JOB – MN ATTORNEYS
If you were injured in a machine accident or equipment accident while you were at work, you are entitled to workers compensation, 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. But you may also be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer of the equipment or machine that injured you.
WORKERS COMPENSATION AFTER MACHINE OR EQUIPMENT ACCIDENT IN MN AND OTHER BENEFITS
Your workers comp 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. In addition, however, you may also be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer of the defective machine or defective 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 (company that made the machine or equipment) that was at fault. Workers Comp benefits in MN are limited, and to be fully compensated, you need to pursue the other insurance as well. In addition, the equipment or machine manufacturer may have to repay the workers compensation insurer for the accident, which will help reduce your employer’s workers comp rates.
Our lawyers’ primary focus is to get you fair and complete compensation for your injuries.

DEFECTIVE PRODUCT LIABILITY IN MINNESOTA
MN has strict product liability laws that hold the manufacturer and seller liable when their defective product, defective equipment or defective machine has injured 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 defective product or defective 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.

Our top Minnesota defective product lawyers have built a reputation of tirelessly battling large corporations and insurance companies to get our clients the compensation they deserve.
The most important thing you can do to help us and help your case is to SAVE EVERYTHING and take lots of pictures. Keep the equipment or machine in exactly the condition it was in at the time of your injury. DON’T let anyone throw anything away, not even your clothing. If possible, don’t even move anything. We need all the equipment parts even if they are partially destroyed.
