See below to learn more about these dangerous accidents.

Common Types of Saw and Cutting Blade Accidents

  • Table Saw Accidents: These are prevalent in woodworking shops and can lead to severe cuts or even amputation.
  • Miter Saw Accidents: Often used in framing and carpentry, misuse can result in loss of limb.
  • Band Saw Accidents: Utilized for intricate cutting, this machine can be dangerous if not handled correctly in a safe environment.
  • Chainsaw Accidents: These are common in forestry and tree-trimming services, and mishaps can lead to catastrophic injuries.

Causes of Saw and Cutting Blade Accidents

Accidents involving saws and cutting blades are often due to one or more of the following reasons:

  1. Operator Inexperience: Lack of training can make handling saws hazardous. Those in charge should not put power saws in the hands of inexperienced workers without adequate training and supervision.
  2. Equipment Malfunction: Sometimes the machinery itself may be defective, leading to accidents. Malfunctions might be the fault of the product manufacturer or the owner of the equipment who failed to maintain it. Determining the liable party or parties requires the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer.
  3. Inadequate Safety Measures: Insufficient safety features or not using protective gear can result in injuries. In New York, employers as well as property owners, developers and contractors on construction sites must provide workers with the equipment they need to do their job safely.

Legal Rights and Responsibilities in New York

In New York, personal injury law is well-defined when it comes to saw and cutting blade accidents. Victims may be entitled to compensation for past and future medical expenses, loss of income for time missed from work or due to permanent disability, and “non-economic” damages like pain and emotional suffering. Additionally, New York follows the “pure comparative negligence” rule, meaning you could still recover damages even if you are thought to be partially at fault for the accident. An employee’s negligence plays no role in workers’ compensation claims, and in other situations, it could affect the value of a claim but not the viability of the claim itself.
