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.
Most power tools pose inherent risks of harm to users, but many accidents are truly caused by product defects. We can help. Our attorneys have the experience and skill necessary to pursue your case.
