Machine Operator Suffered Severe Personal Injuries From a Faulty Heat Sealer

September 14, 2005

While a machine operator was wiping residue off of the upper plate of a press used for heat sealing packages, the press plate closed trapping the operator's hand under hundreds of pounds of pressure and temperatures in excess of 400 degrees Fahrenheit. The press, which was manufactured and installed by Universal Machine, was in emergency stop mode to allow for the cleaning when the work injury accident occurred. Lawyers at Rapoport Law Offices, P.C., filed a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer of the machine on behalf of the plaintiff who suffered serious personal injury and disfigurement as a result of the incident in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.
