Nail Gun Accidents
If you work in construction or carpentry, you are probably familiar with nail guns. As you know, these tools can be extremely useful on the job. However, they can also be extremely dangerous — and if things go wrong, you can be seriously hurt. These injuries can range from the inconvenient to the life-altering.
Each year, 37,000 people visit the emergency room due to nail gun accidents, according to the Center for Disease Control. These injuries can be caused by a careless nail gun user, of course, but they can also be caused by an employer’s negligence or a defective product.
If you use a nail gun at work, it is important that you be properly trained beforehand. If an employer is careful to establish and follow good safety protocols, many injuries can be avoided. Unfortunately, not every employer is as careful as they should be.
After a nail gun injury, you may be feeling frustrated, angry or confused. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to achieve justice. If your nail gun injury was caused by an unsafe work environment or a defective product, you may be entitled to a financial settlement.
This can include compensation for missed wages, medical bills, and emotional damages. You may also be entitled to a settlement if your injury was the result of a defective nail gun. An experienced attorney can help you figure out whether you might be entitled to compensation.
