Defective drill lacking safety


Clients come to us after being injured by a dangerous machine or tool and want to know what legal rights they have. These clients have come to the right place for answers because the attorneys at Schiffman Firm have almost a century of legal expertise dealing with these complex issues.
If a person is injured by a defective tool or machine, the case should be handled by attorneys with experience in this area because the law is very complex and these cases require experience, time and financial resources. We know that often more than one person or company is responsible for the injury. For instance, a person injured at work or during the course of his employment due to a defective machine or tool may have a claim for workers’ compensation. This may not be the only avenue to compensation. This injured person will also be able to bring a case against the machine or tool manufacturer and seller also if the proper conditions are met. We have the expertise to pursue those case.
At Schiffman Firm, we have had significant and repeated success with cases involving defective tools and machines that other attorneys and law firms have refused to take or have quit pursuing when the road got too rough.

  • Office equipment;Dangerous tools and machinery

  • Nail guns;
  • Chainsaws;
  • Snow blowers or snow throwers;
  • Industrial presses;
  • Sanders;
  • Table saws;
  • Sledgehammers, and many more.

We put in the time and effort it takes to find the right experts for each case. Defective product cases almost always require experts and retaining the right expert often means winning the case. We search for the right experts regionally, nationally, and even internationally. Our efforts ensure that our clients have the best possible chance of a positive outcome in their cases.
We are often able to provide secure evidence storage to our clients free of charge which saves them an otherwise costly expense and provides our attorneys and experts with the access they need to the vital evidence that must be evaluated or examined in preparing a case.
Our attorneys know the right places to look to locate exemplars that can be used by experts in extensive destructive and non-destructive testing to find the answers to complex questions of causation and legal fault (liability).
We know how difficult life can be when you or a loved one is injured. That is why we put in the hard work that is required in cases involving defective or unsafe tools and machines required to obtain the best results possible.
