Chain Saw Injury Attorneys
Accidents involving saws and grinders modified with saw blades can cause serious injuries to construction workers. Injuries range from lacerations, amputations and even death. The New York Labor Law and Industrial Code contain several provisions applicable to table saws and hand saws/grinders that, if violated, will provide a basis for a claim by an injured worker. For example, each portable and table saw (including a grinder with a saw blade attached) must be equipped with a guard to prevent contact with the saw blade. A worker who is injured due to an unprotected saw can file a lawsuit to obtain fair compensation for his injuries due to the lack of an adequately protected saw as required by New York law.
