Electric and pneumatic nail guns speed up framing, shingling and other construction work. Unfortunately, sometimes speed comes at the expense of worker safety.
If you have been injured in an accident involving a nail gun, call (646) 808-3785 to discuss your case with an nail gun accident lawyer at The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny today. You may be entitled to compensation. Our lawyers represent construction workers, including undocumented workers, who are injured in construction activities in the New York City area.
Determining the Cause of Nail Gun Injuries
Nail gun injuries can result from product defects, unsafe modifications to the tool, a lack of training or other causes. Prompt investigation of the accident and the tool in question is needed to identify all parties who may be liable for your injury.
Here are examples of the most common causes of nail gun injuries:
- Accidental discharge due to a malfunctioning safety mechanism
- Deliberate disabling of a safety mechanism
- Double fires or misfires caused by a product defect
- Ricochets caused by a nail-striking metal or a hard surface
- A nail going all the way through wood
- A nail missing the intended strike area
- Operating a nail gun without eye protection
Common injuries include nail penetration or ricochet wounds in hands, legs, feet, heads, eyes or other areas of the body.
Firm founder Richard M. Kenny worked in construction before he became a lawyer. As a result, he understands the job safety issues workers face.
