Representing Victims of Defective Machinery Accidents
From toaster ovens to snow blowers, machines are a part of our everyday
life. We use them at home, at work, and even in our vehicles, and we rely
on their convenience and efficiency to help us multi-task. When a machine
is manufactured or designed incorrectly, those defects can cause serious
and life-threatening injuries. Whether at home or in the workplace, the
use of a defective machine that you believe to be safe can result in severe
injury or death.
product liability attorneys at Golomb & Honik, P.C. represent those who suffered preventable
injuries using poorly designed or manufactured machinery either on the
job or in the home. If you suffered an injury that you suspect was caused

Who is liable for defective machinery accidents?
A machine can fail in numerous ways, including design defects and manufacturing
errors. If the machine contained a design defect or manufacturing flaw
or if there were inadequate warnings on the product, then you may be able
to hold the manufacturer responsible for your accident. Manufacturers,
distributors, sellers, and even maintenance companies could all be held
accountable under product liability laws. An experienced Philadelphia
product liability lawyer will need to investigate all aspects of your
accident to determine who is ultimately responsible for your accident-and
your injuries. In some cases there may be multiple parties responsible
for your accident.
Unfortunately, manufacturers rarely admit that their machine has an inherent
defect in the design or construction. They may shift blame to the consumer
or state that the product was not used in the manner in which it was intended.
These tactics are designed to reduce the manufacturer’s liability
and deflect blame. At Golomb & Honik, P.C., we don’t let manufacturer’s
hide behind these smoke screens. We fight aggressively to expose design
flaws and product defects, so dangerous and defective machines are removed
Whether a machine has a design flaw, is prone to a manufacturing defect,
or lacks adequate warnings, our attorneys have more than three decades
of success leading product liability cases backed up by the resources
and the will to challenge the companies who exercise negligence in putting
defective machines into the hands of consumers and workers.
