Injuries Caused by Equipment Malfunction:  Workers' Comp Cases

When you work with equipment and machinery in the workplace, it can occur that the equipment malfunctions in some manner, either through poor maintenance, a design flaw or operator error.  Regardless of the reason, if you have been injured in an equipment malfunction while at work, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits.  A Los Angeles workers' compensation attorney from the Pacific Attorney Group can meet with you to determine the facts of the accident that caused your injury and provide you with the legal options you may have.

In cases of equipment malfunction due to poor design or a defective part, you may also be able to file a personal injury claim against a third party, the manufacturer of the equipment.  If it can be shown that there was something wrong with the design or operation of the machinery due to their failure to properly design the equipment, compensation for medical costs, lost wages and pain and suffering may be allowed.

Workers' Compensation Benefits

Regardless of whether you can pursue a third party for additional compensation, your employer provides you with workers' comp benefits which include the cost of medical treatment as well as a portion of your regular pay.  In order to ensure you obtain all benefits you are entitled to and receive the medical treatment you need in order to fully recover, retaining a workers' comp lawyer from our firm is highly recommended.  Your employer and their workers' comp insurance company do not always have your best interests in mind when determining your benefits; therefore it is best to have your own representative protecting your interests.
