No. You cannot sue your employer for an injury that happened on the job due to the workers' compensation law. However, in industrial machinery accident cases, you can sue the manufacturer of the machine and other parties who were involved in the evolution of the machine. Industrial machines are reengineered, rebuilt and redesigned throughout the span of their lives, and outside engineering firms or contractors are often responsible for these processes.
If you were injured in an industrial machinery accident, call Dan O'Brien, an experienced industrial machinery accident lawyer in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, to discuss your legal rights at 877.944.8396.
