Is the Equipment at Your Job Unsafe?
The equipment you rely on to do your job should make your life easier, not put you at risk. Whether you work in manufacturing, construction, or somewhere else, you have the right to depend that the equipment you use will be safe and reliable. Your employer is legally required to keep your work environment as safe as possible. That includes ensuring that work equipment is maintained properly. It also means that you have the right to be trained to use complicated equipment.
Sadly, unsafe work equipment is all too common. In some cases, the equipment was defective. In others, poor training or maintenance can render once-safe equipment dangerous. When equipment is unsafe, everyone in the workplace is at risk. The consequences can be dire: in 2016 alone, over 700 deaths were caused by contact with objects and equipment in the workplace, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
If you were injured by unsafe equipment, you may still be struggling today. Serious injuries can make it hard or even impossible to return to work. Rising medical bills can make it hard to pay rent. All because someone else failed to ensure that you would have a safe work environment.
You shouldn’t have to bear the burden of your preventable injuries alone. You may be entitled to financial compensation to help cover the cost of missed wages, medical bills, and emotional damages.
