Who is liable for your injuries?
When work equipment fails, it may be because of a design or manufacturing defect. In some cases, however, workers are injured when equipment is not properly maintained. Employers must perform regular safety and maintenance checks on equipment and machinery. If they fail to do so, they may be held liable for injuries. The attorneys at The Law Office of Joe A. Gamez know how to determine who is responsible for your injury.
When an individual is injured while using a product on an oil field the manufacturer can be held legally liable for damages. Provided that the person was using the product in its intended manner and was not acting carelessly or recklessly at the time of the accident, the manufacturer may be considered to be at fault. Defects that can serve as grounds for legal action include inherent design flaws, manufacturing defects, and even failure to warn of certain dangers involved with using the product. If any of these issues was a factor in causing your injury or the death of a loved one, then you have a right to demand fair compensation for your losses.
