Wilmington Power Tool Accident Attorney

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), a division of the U.S. Department of Labor, issued a set of guidelines having to do with the safe operation of hand and power tools. Although this document is more than 15 years old, and although industries and workers know full well most of the guidelines (such as, "Examine each tool for damage before use"), accidental injuries related to power tools continue to occur in work settings.

Examples of power tools that have caused serious injuries to workers, as well as private individuals engaged in do-it-yourself activities at home, include:

  • Power saws
  • Pneumatic tools
  • Chippers
  • Drills
  • Power hammers
  • Jack hammers
  • Sanders
  • Nail guns
  • Hydraulic tools
  • Grinders
  • Powder-activated power tools

Effective Wilmington Tool Injury Lawyers

At Christina Rivenbark & Associates, experienced personal injury attorneys represent people injured through the use of power tools, at work or in their private lives. If we investigate your case, we may discover that your accident was caused wholly or in part by missing or malfunctioning:

  • Guards
  • Safety switches
  • Goggles
  • Safety gloves

Sometimes we learn that a maintenance provider was negligent, or that a power cord was defective. It is not always a violation of safety standards by workers or their supervisors that causes power tool accidents. Sometimes the fault lies with the manufacturer of the power tool. We have handled a number of product liability cases with favorable outcomes.
