If you’ve done a home improvement project, chances are that you’ve worked with a nail gun. Despite their convenience over regular hammers, nail guns are responsible for over 37,000 injuries every year. These mechanized devices have also been the subject of recalls over the year when it was discovered that a manufacturing defect could lead to serious injuries in consumers.

It is important to understand that nail guns are very dangerous power tools and as such, should be examined and maintained regularly for defects as well as signs of wear and tear. Your employer should also make sure that you are adequately trained and that safety checks are carried out regularly to keep you safe at all times. As a consumer using a nail gun in the privacy of your own home, nail gun manufacturers are held by a duty of care that is meant to keep you safe by making sure that nail gun makers follow all the manufacturing protocols needed to produce a fully functional product before it hits the market. Failure to do so is tantamount to breach of duty of care, and you are free to file a nail gun injury lawsuit under product liability law to recover compensation. Have you been hurt by a nail gun?
