Were You Injured by a Faulty Power Saw, Welder, Drill or Other Tool?
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, close to 400,000 people are treated every year in emergency rooms for power tool injuries. Out of that number, approximately 200 die from their injuries.
Power tool designers, manufacturers and marketers have an obligation to make sure their products are safe for use on construction sites and other places. At the minimum, they are required to provide adequate warnings about the potential dangers associated with the tool. If you were injured by defective construction equipment or from false representations made by the manufacturer, you may have a case to recover financial compensation for your losses.
Other serious injuries may occur when someone tampers with a power tool. For instance, a supervisor may decide to remove a guard on a saw because he or she believes it will allow a worker to perform his or her job faster. Speed vs. Safety, never a scenario that plays out well for the worker. The worker is later injured when he or she loses control of the saw and cuts his or her hand or finger. The guard, if properly placed, would have avoided this serious consequence.
- Table-mounted or hand-held power saws
- Nail guns
- Power sanders
- Welding or cutting torches
- Power drills
- Grinders, polishers or buffers
- Rechargeable batteries
