Power Tool Accidents

 

Power Tool Accident Cases

In the last 20 years, there has been an increase in the number of power tool or workshop accidents and injuries, mostly due to a rise in the number of “do-it-yourself” homeowners who perform home renovations.  Power tool accidents send an estimated 400,000 people to the emergency room per year.  While the majority of these visits don’t involve serious injury, power tool accidents can and do cause significant injury or even death.

The most common types of workshop or power tools involved in accidents are:

  • nail guns
  • chain saws
  • table saws
  • jig saws
  • band saws
  • snow blowers
  • circular saws
  • drills
  • push and riding lawn mowers
  • air compressors
  • power sanders
  • hoists, lifts or jacks
  • welding, soldering torches
  • power washers

Pennsylvania and New Jersey Laws Applicable in Power Tool Accident Cases

Under Pennsylvania and New Jersey laws, companies which design, manufacture, sell, service and/or rent power tools may be liable for:

  • defective design
  • defective manufacture
  • inadequate warnings
  • ordinary negligence, such as negligent repair/reconditioning

Pennsylvania and New Jersey law is clear: all products must be reasonably fit for their intended uses. Any company who puts a product in the stream of commerce is held to this standard.  In power tool or workshop accidents, there may be a products liability or negligent repair claim against any of the following:

  • manufacturers
  • distributors
  • retailers
  • equipment rental companies
  • power tool maintenance/service companies

It is vital to speak to an experienced Pennsylvania and New Jersey power tool products liability lawyer as soon as possible to determine liability of others.  You may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills/treatment and more.
