This past year, the nail gun accident lawyers at the Philadelphia law firm of Laffey, Bucci & Kent resolved two nail gun accident cases in Pennsylvania.
Outcome: One case settled for $1,000,000 (one million) dollars and the other settled for $925,000. Both of these nail gun accident cases settled prior to trial.
Nature of the defect: The two cases involved the same or similar defect. Our nail gun accident lawyers alleged that the nail guns discharged sideways, and therefore constituted a manufacturing defect.
Under Pennsylvania law, products such as nail guns are defective if they are designed defectively, manufactured defectively or otherwise fail to contain proper warnings. In these nail gun accident cases, the defect occurred during the manufacturing process. Something occurred during manufacture which created a defective end product. In other words, the manufacturing process created the defect.
Nature of the injuries: Both clients suffered permanent vision loss. They were using the defective nail guns when they accidentally fired sideways, hitting them in the eyes.
