Virginia Beach & Richmond Defective Machinery Accident Lawyers

Protecting the Futures of Those Injured on the Job

At Breit Biniazan, we believe workers should be safe on the job. It seems like a reasonable concept, but millions of American workers are injured on the job every year. Many of these injuries are the result of defective or dangerous equipment. 

When faulty machinery leads to personal injuries, there are several possible liable parties, from the manufacturer to the distributor. Identifying those responsible and holding them accountable is a complicated task, but one the personal injury attorneys of Breit Biniazan are dedicated to. 

If you or a loved one were seriously or fatally injured by defective machinery, our Virginia Beach and Richmond attorneys will help you receive the compensation you’re due.

Common Machinery Defects

When something goes wrong with equipment, it is the result of one of three kinds of defects: 

Defective Design

When the design of machinery is defective, it is inherently dangerous. For example, if a machine doesn’t feature adequate safety guards in its design or is prone to overheating, its design is flawed and dangerous. 

Defective Manufacturing

When a piece of machinery is not manufactured correctly, it can also be dangerous. If it is assembled incorrectly or low-quality materials were used during manufacturing, it can lead to injury for the user. 

Defective Marketing

Users of equipment need to understand its dangers or limitations in order to use it safely. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to provide appropriate warnings or instructions. 

These defects can occur in many different kinds of equipment and cause truck accidents, in addition to other accidents involving machinery. At Breit Biniazan, we regularly stand up for clients who have experienced defects with the following types of machinery: 

  • Forklifts
  • Cranes
  • Saw guards
  • Power tools
  • Circular saws
  • Bulldozers
  • Backhoes
  • Graders
  • Excavators
  • Wheel loaders

Types of Accidents & Injuries Caused by Defective Machinery

It’s called “heavy machinery” for a reason, and accidents involving this big equipment tend to lead to catastrophic or even deadly injuries. These accidents occur most often in work environments in which this machinery is used, like the construction, agriculture, maritime, and manufacturing industries.

Defective machinery, similar to defective products, leads to a variety of different kinds of dangerous accidents, including:

When these and similar accidents occur, the injuries often include:
