Were You Injured by A Power Tool? (Tool Defect)
The majority of people understand that certain precautions are necessary to safely operate and handle power tools and equipment. However, individuals have no way of knowing how to protect themselves when the product has an unknown hazardous defect.
Each year, thousands of construction workers and consumers are injured due to defective tools and equipment. This can include accidents caused by defective:
- Power saws, including chain saws, table saws and circular saws
- Power drills
- Welding equipment
- Lawn mowers
- Leaf blowers
Types Of Tool/Equipment Defects
There are three primary reasons why tools become dangerous and injure people:
- Design defect: The tool has a flawed design that makes it unsafe and hazardous.
- Manufacturing defect: The tool was not properly manufactured according to safe design specifications.
- Warning defect: The tool did not come with proper safety warnings, so the operator had no way of knowing that certain usage might be dangerous.
