Common Injuries Associated With Circular Saws

When most people imagine an injury inflicted by a circular saw, they picture a grizzly gash or amputation of a finger or two. Contact with the blade when it is in motion will always result in a severe injury. However, many other types of injuries can occur when operating a circular saw or being near a circular saw when it is in use. Some of the less often considered non-blade circular saw-related injuries include:

  • Blunt trauma can occur when a piece of wood or other material being cut kicks back or is thrown off the work surface by the rotating blade injuring the saw user or anyone near the work area
  • Eye injuries often occur due to flying debris and sawdust
  • Respiratory injuries are related to inhaling sawdust and other fine particles created when using the saw
  • Strains and sprains can occur when handling the saw or when the material being cut suddenly kicks back

While most circular saws include safety features, including guards and blade stops, there is no guarantee that they will prevent all injuries when using the saw. In addition, there is the potential for the circular saw to malfunction, increasing the possibility of a severe or even life-threatening injury. So any time you are injured when operating a circular saw or are in the area where someone else is using a circular saw and become injured, it is always best to consult an expert circular saw injury lawyer. These professionals can determine if you have grounds for seeking compensation for your injuries. In addition, the team at DTLA Law offers free initial consultations to all victims of a circular saw injury to discuss the details of their injury and the potential for a claim for compensation for their injuries.

Who Is Liable For My Circular Saw Injury?

As a layman or hobbyist who has suffered an injury using a circular saw, there could be a number of parties you could sue for compensation. The team at DTLA Law is here to help you understand how each of these parties could be held responsible for your medical bills and other losses related to the injury. The potential plaintiffs include:

  • The manufacturer of the saw, due to a product defect or failure to initiate a recall for a known issue
  • The manufacturer could also be held responsible if there were missing safety features or if the operating instructions failed to address the safety-related operation of the circular saw or complete safety warnings
  • The store where you rented the saw could be liable for failure to properly maintain and repair the circular saw
  • The store or supply chain that was selling a faulty or unsafe circular saw could be held responsible

We are proud to have the reputation as the most successful circular saw injury lawyers in the area. And we will put our expertise to work for you to secure the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

What Compensation Could You Expect

With years of experience as circular saw injury lawyers, the DTLA Law group can provide a realistic estimate of the value of your claim based on several criteria, including:

  • The severity of your injuries and the cost of medical bills for your care, such as the emergency room visit, surgery expenses, recovery care, rehabilitation, prescription medications, and any special items purchased to aid in your care or recovery from the injury.
  • Future medical expenses are also taken into consideration as severe injuries like an amputation can require reconstructive surgery after some healing has occurred or long-term rehabilitation and therapy.
  • Lost wages due to your accident are also used to calculate the amount of your compensation package.
  • Severe injuries such as the loss of fingers or a hand can result in a loss of future earning capacity- this loss of future earnings is a factor in determining the amount of compensation you should seek.
  • As the victim of a circular saw injury, you are sure to experience pain and suffering from your injury as well as potential mental suffering, including anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, nightmares, or other challenges that are included in evaluating the dollar figure for compensation.

The Time To Take Action

In the State of California, there is a time limit on filing a claim for a product liability case. The Statute of Limitations on a circular saw injury is two years from the date of the injury. If you wait too long to file, you could be denied the right to compensation. The team at DTLA Law is here to help you understand the time limitations on filing a claim and the few exceptions to these rules.

It is always best to contact one of our expert circular saw injury lawyers as soon as you are able to discuss the incident. At your free initial consultation, we will evaluate your case and help you organize important information and documents that will help support your claim, such as :

  • All medical records related to your treatment of the injury
  • Photos of the injury
  • Images of the circular saw and especially any areas that could be defective or damaged
  • Witness statements
  • Documents pertaining to the purchase or rental of the circular saw

We also caution any circular saw injury victim against discussing any compensation or settlement from a store, rental company, or manufacturer before seeking legal counsel. Instead, keep the circular saw in your possession and refuse any repairs or service until speaking with a circular saw injury lawyer. This is a precaution to ensure that you have all the evidence needed for your case and have not compromised your ability to seek full and fair compensation for your injuries at a later time.
