Defective Tool Injury Lawyers
When one thinks about defective tools, it’s likely that he/she thinks about power tools. Yet, this is just one example. Defective tools may include any device, instrument, machine or apparatus that is used to perform a task. Specific examples include:
- Power saws
- Power drills
- Nail guns
- Welding rods
- Lawn mowers
- Leaf blowers
While it requires adequate knowledge and adherence to safety precautions to use the above-mentioned tools successfully, there are instances where a product defect causes severe injury to even the most skilled users. For instance, suppose an individual suffers a puncture wound, eye injury or even a brain injury from a nail gun with a design defect related to its trigger mechanism. As the nail is “fired” from the gun, it does so with great speed, but the contact and hand trigger can make discharging the nail complicated. This design element is believed to contribute to a number of accidents and injuries.
As another example, imagine a worker falls while on a ladder due to a broken rung or because the ladder collapsed too quickly, or perhaps a defective generator has resulted in a fuel spill, causing a fire.
As consumers, we purchase and use a variety of tools, putting our faith and trust in the safety and integrity of those products. Yet, despite using them correctly, when a product or tool has a manufacturing or design flaw, we become at risk for injury or even death.
