Some people have jobs which require them to work with dangerous industrial machinery. When workers suffer injuries because of dangerous conditions of poorly designed industrial products or due to a lack of warnings, they can pursue a products liability case against the manufacturer of the product as well as an Illinois worker’s compensation case against their employer. I have handled these kinds of cases as well:
- I represented a machine operator at a plastic recycling plant who suffered a degloving injury to both arms when they got sucked into the machine when he tried to dislodge a jam in the machine. Theories included the lack of a safety interlock and a lack of a emergency off switch near the mouth of the machine.
These kinds of case are inherently difficult because of the legal, factual, and technical issues involved. The help of an experienced Chicago personal injury lawyer is strongly recommended.
To help injured workers navigate the difficulties of this difficult situation, we have written a free book on Illinois worker’s compensation cases and a free book on third-party liability suits in Illinois.
