When Bad Products Hurt Good People - Your Case is Our Cause
Which Law Firm Can Help With a Personal Injury Caused by a Defective Table Saw, Circular Saw, or Chainsaw?
Nearly every type of construction project or home improvement job site will feature some sort of saw – from table saws, miter saws, to circular saws – these tools are invaluable when it comes to cutting materials made out of wood, metal, brick, and tile. However, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) there are thousands of reported injuries 1 related to table saws, circular saws, chainsaws, and more.
These power tools are incredibly useful to people that work construction or remodeling jobs, but they can also be extremely dangerous and can be susceptible to causing catastrophic and life-changing personal injuries.
If a person is injured by a defective table saw, circular saw, chainsaw, or any other type of defective power tool the case should be handled by attorneys with experience in this area. Product liability law is very complex and these cases require experience, time, and substantial financial resources.

What Are Some Common Causes or Defects That Cause Table Saw and Power Saw Injuries?
A manufacturer of any power tool is required to meet certain safety standards to ensure that their product cannot cause harm to the operator during reasonable use.
Unfortunately, many defective products and designs can slip through the cracks and create a hazardous condition for the user. In many cases, it can be something as simple as failing to properly alert the operator of a potentially dangerous component or scenario. Other times inferior internal parts make it past the quality assurance processes and end up failing during use causing the operator or owner to sustain a personal injury.
No matter how an injury occurred, any operator of a power tool should be entitled to receive compensation if they were hurt by a defective product like a table saw or chainsaw.
Common causes and potential defects that cause power or electric saw injuries include:
- Saw blades that are loose or fit improperly
- Blade guards that are missing or defective
- Frayed electrical cords and power cords that cause shock and electrocution
- Manufacturer defects
- Saw blade kickbacks
- Saw blades making contact with the machine
- Overheating saws and components
- Missing safety guards and sensors
- Inferior materials used during production and assembly
- Engineering and design defects
- Inadequate or missing warning labels
Cuts, Amputations, Eye Injuries
What Are Some Common Inuries Caused by Defective Circular Saws or Other Electric Saws?
Most electric saws, including circular saws, can rotate saw blades at speeds up to 7,000 RPM. With that type of velocity, even the smallest manufacturer defect or engineering flaw has the potential to cause catastrophic, life-changing injury to the operator.
While less common, there is still always potential for electrical injury if an operator comes in contact with a defective electrical component like frayed wires or poorly designed power supplies.
