Equipment Malfunctions

Equipment Malfunctions in Maryland

Skilled Representation Courtesy of Our Laurel Construction Accident Lawyers

A significant percentage of equipment malfunctions result from defects in design, materials or assembly. In cases where a defect or modification to the piece of equipment has caused a serious accident, the injured person can initiate a product liability lawsuit against the party or parties responsible for the defect.

At McGowan & Cecil, LLC, we are experienced product liability attorneys in Laurel, Maryland. Our firm has the experience, technical resources, and financial strength to handle these challenging and hard-fought cases.

We handle cases involving all types of defective equipment and tools, including:

  • Heavy construction equipment
  • Industrial equipment
  • Conveyor belts and forklifts
  • Electric hand tools
  • Landscaping equipment and tools
  • Other types of defective and dangerous equipment

It is imperative that we preserve the evidence of your accident immediately.

Call us at (301) 761-2007 as soon as possible. We provide free consultations to all our clients.

Experienced in All Types of Product Liability Cases

Product liability cases often hinge on highly technical investigations performed by engineers, materials specialists, and other experts. When representing you, our Laurel equipment malfunction lawyers will work with specialists in appropriate disciplines to establish the mode of product failure and liability. McGowan & Cecil, LLC will vigorously advocate for you, seeking full compensation for your losses, including medical costs, lost income, and pain and suffering.

Do You Have A Third-Party Claim?

Many, if not all, people who are injured on the job have workers' compensation insurance that pays benefits. If your accident was caused by a third party, such as an equipment supplier or service company, you may be eligible for additional compensation via a third-party claim. This is a separate, but related legal action that requires careful attention and coordination of both the workers' compensation claim and third-party claim. McGowan & Cecil, LLC has extensive experience in cases involving workers' compensation and third-party claims. We will work diligently to protect your rights and help you obtain maximum compensation from all sources.

To learn more about your legal options and how we can help you get the compensation you deserve, speak with a Laurel equipment malfunction attorney at our firm when you call (301) 761-2007.
