Festool USA has recalled its popular plunge circular saw for possible laceration hazards caused by the device. According to the recall notice the device has the potential for causing lacerations to those who use it. These lacerations can be dangerous if they cut against an artery or deep into a vein causing massive blood loss. In other cases deep lacerations can result in nerve damage and tissue damage. Depending on the location of the cut it may require long term procedures such as plastic surgery to repair any injury. If you have been injured contact a personal injury attorney to get a better understanding of your rights and make sure to follow these steps.
Cause of Injury Manufacture Liability
A manufacturer will be responsible for putting in the stream of commerce a defective product. All that is required to show that a product was in fact defective, is that it failed to perform in the manner for which it was intended. If the device fails to operate in the manner for which it was designed it is considered a defective product. To prove a product is or was in fact defective a lawsuit will need to be filed against the manufacturer of the device. In certain cases it is advisable to join in all of those involved in the sale of the product. All parties in the commercial sale of the product will be held responsible for injuries sustained.
