About Equipment Malfunction Injury Cases
Equipment Malfunction Work Related Injuries
Many work environments require the use of equipment on a daily basis. Although generally safe, equipment does malfunction and can cause injuries to workers who use them during their work performance. These injuries can come about through explosions, failure of safety systems, gas leaks and other unexpected dangerous situations. Equipment malfunction injuries can result from various reasons, including:
- Poor maintenance
- Design flaws
- Worker errors
- General malfunctions
Fortunately for injured workers, regardless of the reason for the malfunction, a worker is covered under the workers' compensation laws in California. A San Diego workers' compensation attorney can assist you in determining what compensation you may be entitled to following a work related injury.

In addition, if it can be shown that the equipment malfunction was caused by a third party's negligence, you may be able to pursue them as well for compensation that might include pain and suffering.
