Power tools can be found on every construction site in San Antonio, Texas. Advances have been made in power tool technology, making power tools smaller, more powerful and readily available. The recent increase in the number of power tools used on construction sites throughout Texas has dramatically increased the number of people exposed to a potential injury involving a power tool. Injuries involving the use of power tools include burns, lacerations, puncture wounds, electrical shock, loss of sight, and potentially death.
Claim possibilities in power tool injury cases
Employees injured by power tools may have a claim against the manufacturer and/or supplier of the power tools. Under Texas law, manufacturers and suppliers owe a legal duty to only sell products fit for their intended use. You may have a claim if a power tool’s manufacturer failed to properly equip their power tools’ moving parts with safety guards. Additionally, claims may be brought against the manufacturer if the power tool injury resulted from a manufacturing defect or design defect.
Employees injured by power tools may also have a claim against their employer or general contractor. Employers have a duty to ensure that the workplace is safe from known and to use reasonable care to inspect for unknown hazards. Your employer owes a duty to ensure that you are properly trained and supervised. Furthermore, modifications to power tools made by the employer or at the employer’s direction can also result in serious injury. Don’t worry – our San Antonio law firm can help.
Many people injured while using power tools believe that they are solely responsible for their own injuries.
