Deerfield Beach Heavy Equipment Failures
If you have been injured in a series workplace accident in Deerfield Beach or anywhere in Florida, it is common to feel helpless. You may be seriously injured and unable to return to work.

You may be falling behind on bills and you may be suffering due to the pain of your injuries.

If your injuries were caused by manufacturing defects or through another preventable instance of negligence or recklessness, you may have a legal claim under Florida law.

In fact, our attorneys are pleased to have been able to recover more than $100 million on behalf of thousands of clients over the years, and we know that this compensation has helped make a difference for those clients who have struggled to pay the bills and return to their normal lives following a devastating injury.Products Liability Cases Involving Heavy Machinery
Under Florida laws, plaintiffs can file a products liability claim in Deerfield Beach or their community if a product has injured them through a flaw or defect. In most product liability cases, plaintiffs need to prove that:
- There was a flaw in the design or manufacturing of the product
- The defect caused an injury
In the case of heavy equipment on a construction site or in an industrial setting, the case can be more complicated because these products are not enjoyed by millions of customers, so class-action lawsuits are unlikely. Many people may also be involved in setting up, maintaining, and using the heavy machinery, so there is usually a lot of finger pointing when a piece of heavy equipment causes a serious injury. A good attorney can find all liable parties and can build a strong case by working with private investigators, engineers, and technical experts to prove negligence.
Depending on the specifics of your situation, there may be multiple liable parties in your case, including:
- The manufacturer of the machinery
- The company renting the equipment or the company responsible for maintaining the equipment
- The construction site manager or the owner of the property whether the equipment is located
- Your employer
- Other employees
