Table Saw Safety Will Likely Result from Lawsuits Since Neither Industry Nor Government Will Act

CV.jpgAnnually, more than 4,000 Americans suffer amputations while using table saws and nearly 30,000 more need emergency room treatment with lesser injuries. Sadly, these injuries don't have to happen at all. For many years now a table saw manufacturer called Sawstop (http://www.sawstop.com/ ) has manufactured its table saws using technology that stops a table saw blade nearly instantaneously when contact is made with human skin. Years ago I discovered this technology while investigating a table saw accident and had the opportunity to speak with Sawstop's owner. He imparted that the rest of industry has been resistant to this amazing technology because of its cost.

An Employee May File A Products Liability Lawsuit For A Workplace Injury in Some Instances

California workers' compensation laws require that employers provide employees with workers' compensation benefits when they are injured during the course of employment.  Employees are generally entitled to this compensation even if the accident wasn't the employer's fault and even if the employee may be partially to blame for the injuries sustained.
