Everyday people are injured using table saws. Even with the growing number of injured users, very little is being done to correct the defective issue that is causing such injuries. Recently technology advocates have requested that the federal government make certain features mandatory. The developers of new or advanced technologies are pressing for these safety features in order to avoid devastating accidents. Statistics show that there are over 60,000 ER visits annually for table saw related injuries. Of those over 10% have lead to amputations, which can be avoided. New technology exists which can stop the circular saw blade upon contact with human flesh. This new technology could potentially save and avoid hundreds of injuries. If you have been injured in a table saw accident, speak to a table saw defect attorney. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
