The manufacturer, supplier, and seller of personal protective equipment has a duty to manufacture, supply, and sell the equipment in a safe condition or a condition safe for all foreseeable uses. It should contain no unsafe elements. If they fail to do so, and you are hurt, you may have a claim against them for your injuries and losses.
And, if your injury is on-the-job, you may be entitled not only to Workers’ Compensation benefits but also have the right to file a “third party” claim.
“Third party” liability includes a person or company who is not your employer. Often, third parties include general or sub-contractor, the manufacturer of defective or unsafe protective equipment, or any other type of third party who contributed to the injury because of misconduct or negligence.
