Ohio Valley Attorneys for Defective Machinery Injuries

We Hold Machinery Manufacturers Accountable

If you have been injured or your family member has been killed as a result of a defective machine, contact the Ohio Valley law firm of Chaffin Luhana. Over the last several years we have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation for our clients. Though we are equipped to handle all work injury, wrongful death, and personal injury lawsuits, we are particularly skilled at extremely complex cases including those involving defective machinery.

Our attorneys work with mechanical engineers and other specialists who can study the facts of your case to determine if a defective products liability lawsuit is possible. When you contact us for a free consultation we will offer a candid analysis of your case. By the end of your consultation regarding a defective machinery injury, you will know:

  • If your case has merit and if Chaffin Luhana will represent you in a defective machinery injury lawsuit
  • How much compensation you may be able to obtain through litigation
  • How long the legal process will likely take to resolve

Defective machinery cases require diligence and access to specialists who can determine if the machinery that caused your suffering was defective. We may need to demand company records and additional evidence for signs that the machine manufacturer knew or should have known that their product was unsafe. If you need aggressive attorneys on your side in the Ohio River Valley after a defective machinery injury, do not hesitate to call Chaffin Luhana.

Workers’ Compensation May Not Be Enough

In every state—including the states of the Ohio Valley—workers’ compensation is required in the event of an injury or wrongful death occurring at work. However, each state has different ways of administering the system and each state has widely varying standards for determining how much compensation an injured employee or their grieving family should receive. Many times, claims for benefits are denied. In other cases, the compensation approved is far below what is fair.

Chaffin Luhana can assist you with filing a claim for workers’ compensation in Ohio, Pennsylvania or West Virginia. In fact, we are able to help you after a workplace injury wherever you are in the nation. We are also particularly skilled when a third party liability lawsuit is necessary.

In a defective machinery injury lawsuit, the third party named in a lawsuit will likely be the machine manufacturer. A distributor of the defective machinery, a company that shipped the machinery or a contractor operating the machine may also be named in such a lawsuit. Defective machinery injury lawsuits may have multiple parties sharing responsibility. Our Ohio Valley attorneys for defective machinery injuries will hold all parties accountable and fight for maximum compensation on your behalf. We collect nothing unless we win for you. If we take your case, we plan to win.

how not to be a lawyer

according to eric t. chaffin

“My father was a union witness at an arbitration in a steel mill. After the hearing, my father, dressed in blue jeans and a sweatshirt, stuck out his hand to shake hands with the company’s lawyer. The lawyer refused. The lawyer was not upset because my dad got the best of him but because he frowned upon working class people. I was the first person in my family to graduate from college. My dad used this story to remind me to respect others, to remember where I came from and as an example of how not to conduct myself as a lawyer.”
