Workplace injuries may be the result of negligence by another company's employee, or even by your own employer's removal of a guard or safety device. Ohio workplace accidents are also sometimes caused by defective machines, the result of product defects, design defects, negligent installation or negligent maintenance. Boiler explosions may also cause serious injury or even wrongful death. If you have been injured by defective machinery or equipment, by a missing safety device or a guard, you may be entitled to collect damages from the manufacturer, a third party, or in the case of a workplace intentional tort, your own employer.

Industrial machines, heavy equipment, power tools and appliances — any machine with moving parts has the potential to cause serious injuries or disability. Machines are supposed to have guards that prevent people from being injured by moving parts as well as from contact with electrical current. Machines such as construction cranes, backhoes, earth movers and the like must be operated with great caution or someone may be killed or maimed. Some of the most common results of machine accidents include:
- Wrongful death
- Crushed limbs, hands or fingers
- Electric shock and electrical burns
Injuries may be the result of unguarded machines, missing safety guards, wear and tear, poor supervision, lack of training, machine defects or negligent operation. We will seek compensation from all responsible parties for damages, including past and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and related expenses. In wrongful death cases, we will also seek compensation for one's funeral expenses, the loss of a loved one's consortium and society, and loss of income, as well as conscious pain and suffering.Akron Dangerous Machinery Attorneys
