From logging to shipbuilding, from the construction trades to high-tech manufacturing, Mainers have never been afraid to tackle the toughest jobs. The men and women who keep these industries running depend on safe, reliable tools and equipment.
But when those tools and pieces of machinery are defective, poorly designed, or improperly labeled, it can result in serious injury or death for the operator.
Each year, hundreds of people in Maine, through no fault of their own, are injured or killed by defective products, including tools and industrial equipment. When someone else’s negligence caused the injury whether it’s a manufacturing defect or an employer’s failure to properly train a worker. Maine law entitles victims and their families to financial compensation.
