Injuries May Be Catastrophic or Fatal
Working with power tools or machines puts a worker's arms, hands and fingers at increased risk for injury. However, many types of injuries are possible, including:
- Broken or crushed bones
- Eye injury and loss of vision
- Electric shock
- Deep cuts or lacerations
Wrongful death may occur if the accident causes severe blood loss, electrocution or infection.
Defects in the design or manufacture of a tool or machine can cause it to malfunction and injure workers. Wear and tear, failure to inspect machines and failure to do maintenance can also cause accidents. Missing or faulty safety guards may result in electrical accidents or injury from the machine's moving parts.
Lack of proper training can also put workers at risk. Additional dangers include using the wrong tool for the job and failure to provide safety equipment. We can help you seek compensation from negligent third parties such as the manufacturer of a defective tool or a contractor who was involved in the accident.
