Were You Injured By A Defective Power Tool?

The very nature of power tools makes them a potential hazard. However, if a skilled user is putting the tool to the use for which it was intended, there should not be a risk of harm. Unfortunately, because defective power tools are a fairly common occurrence, injuries can happen even when a user does everything right.

Because power tools are used at home and on construction and other work sites, the injuries defective tools cause occur in the home and at the workplace. Power tools — often intended for purposes such as cutting, drilling and impacting — have the capability of causing serious harm and even death. No amount of caution, care or skill can prevent an accident or injury when a power tool is defective. The Sacramento County product liability attorneys at Piering Law Firm can help you get the compensation you deserve.

There is no type of power tool that is exempt from the possibility of possessing a defect with the potential to cause injury.

If there is a defect in the design or manufacture of a power tool and injury resulted, you are entitled to seek compensation from the tool manufacturer.
