Aggressive, Experienced Pennsylvania Nail Gun Accident Attorneys
Nail guns are safe, effective tools that save time and make workers’ jobs easier when they are designed, manufactured and used properly. Nail guns drive nails into a variety of surfaces with explosive charges, but that kind of force also makes them as dangerous as firearms unless proper safety measures are observed at all times. With tools as powerful and potentially deadly as nail guns, it only takes a moment of carelessness or a malfunction to cause very serious and potentially fatal injuries.
Nail gun accident victims who did not receive proper safety training or who were injured due to a malfunctioning or defective nail gun often consult with experienced Philadelphia nail gun accident lawyers. The Pennsylvania nail gun accident lawyers at personal injury law firm Cherry Injury Law have many years of experience helping accident victims and their families. If you or a close relative has been injured or killed in a nail gun accident, they may be able to help.
It requires a great deal of force to drive a nail into metal, cement, masonry and other hard, dense surfaces. As an example of the explosive force of these tools, consider that some nail guns can fire nails up to ten centimeters into hardened concrete at velocities up to 1,400 feet per second. Depending on the nail gun and its intended use, some people use explosive cartridges to drive nails, and others use compressed air. But it is very important to note that even nail guns that are considered “less powerful” still discharge nails with deadly force and can cause very serious and even fatal injuries. Common nail gun accident injuries include the following:
- Nails driven into a worker’s non-dominant hand
- Dropped nail guns driving nails into skulls, spines, mouths and limbs
- Soft tissues injuries from nails that fragment and explode on impact like shrapnel
- Severe hand injuries from malfunctioning or poorly designed nail guns that explode in a worker’s hand, resulting in lost fingers and lifelong disfigurement
- Devastating eye injuries from the explosive force causing fragments of nail, concrete and other material to enter the eye
- Other very serious and sometimes fatal nail gun accident injuries
The Philadelphia nail gun accident lawyers at Cherry Injury Law are strong advocates for injured workers’ rights and have been helping injured workers and their families seek damages for years. Although no amount of damages can replace a lost digit or impaired vision in one eye, it can help families with medical expenses, replace lost wages and future earnings and defray the costs of physical rehabilitation and other ongoing care.
