Can I File a Lawsuit for a Defective Power Saw Accident in Boston?

Many people believe that if they are injured on the job and file a worker’s compensation claim there is little else they can do. What they do not know it that if the injury was caused by a defective tool, such as a power saw they have the right to sue the manufacturer of the defective tool. If you were injured by a defective power saw while working, call our Boston office to speak to an expert defective products liability attorney. The personal injury lawyer you meet with will evaluate your case at no charge. We ever charge you an upfront fee and you only pay us if you win your case.

Many manufacturers are earnest in making their products safe. Even so, design failures occur and products may be recalled. However, power tools often change hands and there is no guarantee that users know about the recall. Not too long ago, DeWalt recalled over 110,000 miter saws. The saws were recalled because DeWalt learned of seven instances of injuries caused by a badly designed blade attachment system. Used normally, the bolts that secured the 12-inch blades to the saw became loose and the spinning blades detached from the saw.

Power saws are great tools. However, if not made or designed correctly they can cause long-lasting injuries that affect your quality of life. Manufacturers should be held accountable for the things they make. A power saw injury could ruin your ability to work.

You can sue the manufacturer and receive monetary compensation for past and future medical bills, past and future lost wages, all costs of rehabilitation, pain, and suffering and in some cases punitive damages.
