It is very likely that you do. If there is a design defect in the machine that caused your injury, then you could have a case against the manufacturer of the machine. Further, it sounds like your finger was in a dangerous area like a pinch point that needed to have a guard to protect the operator. If a guard did not exist, you could have a case against the machine manufacturer. If a guard did exist, but was designed improperly, then you could also have a case against the manufacturer. However, an inspection of the machine is necessary in order to properly evaluate whether you have a case or not. Therefore, it is important that you talk to an industrial machinery accident lawyer in Pennsylvania to discuss your case and set up an inspection.
