Workplace Electrical Accidents
Accidents and injuries involving defective electrical equipment can occur anywhere and anytime that an electric device is used, but they often occur on construction worksites and in manufacturing plants. Workers who are injured by defective electrical equipment while on the job are generally entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Additionally, the injured worker may also be able to pursue a product liability action against the product manufacturer.
Product Liability Laws
Whether an accident caused by defective electrical equipment occurs in the workplace, at home, or in another location, the plaintiff may be able to recover money damages against the product designer, manufacturer, or supplier in a product liability lawsuit. In order to sustain a product liability claim, the plaintiff must show that:
- there was a design or manufacturing defect in the product;
- the manufacturer failed to warn consumers of the possible risks associated with the product;
- the defective product caused the plaintiff’s injuries; and
- the plaintiff was using the product in the way it was intended to be used.
Product liability laws generally hold anyone along a product’s supply chain – including automobile designers, engineers, manufacturers, distributors, and dealers – liable for injuries and damages sustained as a result of a dangerous or defective product. Product liability lawsuits can be brought based on design defects, manufacturing defects, or marketing defects (such as inadequate warning labels).
