Practice Areas

I was hurt at work by a machine that another worker was operating. I was doing other work in that area that had nothing to do with that machine. Do I have the right to sue that machine manufacturer anyway?


A: Products liability cases are not limited to only those people who are actually using the product. Therefore, if your co-worker is using a product, and a piece flies off because of a manufacturing defect and injures you as you are working or even walking nearby, you can bring a products liability claim. The law in this area is being reviewed but the purpose of product liability laws is to ensure safe products and thus the focus is on the product and not necessarily on who was actually operating it.
