Bloomington Premises Liability Lawyer for Improperly Installed Devices

McDonough County appliance installation negligence lawyers

Attorneys for Injuries Caused by Appliances in McLean County, Macon County, Sangamon County, and Champaign County

Typically, premises liability cases involve injuries that took place because of the negligence of a property owner or a tenant who did not take steps to protect the safety of visitors to the property. However, injuries can also occur because appliances, equipment, or other devices were not installed properly. In these cases, victims will want to determine who was responsible for the damages they have suffered, and by working with a skilled attorney, they can pursue compensation from all liable parties.

At Kanoski Bresney, we have more than 40 years of experience representing clients in premises liability cases and other types of personal injuries. We have helped injury victims obtain over $400 million through jury verdicts and settlements, and we are not afraid to stand up to large insurance companies or others who are liable for an accident or injury. We will fight to protect your right to receive compensation for your injuries, and we will make sure you receive the respect, response, and results you deserve.

Injuries Due to Negligent Installation of Appliances and Other Devices

There are a wide variety of electrical and mechanical devices in a house or apartment, including home appliances and HVAC equipment. Commercial properties such as stores and restaurants may contain larger and more complex equipment, such as elevators, escalators, cooking equipment, or industrial laundry equipment. Factories and warehouses will often feature large pieces of machinery, conveyor belts, or other equipment used to package and ship products. Improper installation of any of these devices can lead to serious injuries for their users or other people on the property.

Some common types of injuries that can occur when equipment is not properly installed include:

  • Refrigerators or freezers may tip over and crush a person, causing injuries such as broken bones or amputations. A coolant leak can lead to chemical burns, or a person may suffer harm due to exposure to toxic substances.
  • Furnaces or air conditioners that are not connected properly can cause carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Improperly installed dishwashers may leak water onto wiring, which can cause electrical fires. These leaks can also lead to slip and fall injuries.
  • Ceiling fans that are not properly secured can come loose and strike a person, leading to traumatic brain injuries.
  • Improper installation of stoves or ovens can lead to gas leaks that cause fires or explosions.
  • Washers or dryers that are not wired correctly can cause electrical fires or electrocution injuries.

In some cases, a contractor, tradesman, or another worker may be responsible for injuries that occurred because the equipment was not installed correctly. A landlord may be liable for injuries to tenants that took place because they did not address dangers presented by appliances or other devices. A manufacturer may also be liable for injuries caused by defective products, including in situations where proper installation instructions were not provided or a manufacturer did not warn people about the dangers of using a product.
