Were you using a nail gun while working on a construction project at home or as part of your regular job duties as a construction worker when it failed and caused you serious injury? Nail gun accidents are a serious and common consequence of defective hardware equipment that was not properly manufactured or unclear on safety instructions.

Parties that could be liable for your nail gun accident include:

  • Manufacturer
  • Distributer
  • Retailer
  • Supervisor (failure to maintain equipment)

In recent years, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recalled several popular nail guns. Ridgid Pneumatic Nailers were recalled due to trigger malfunctions that could cause the tool to misfire and involuntarily discharge without warning. Hitachi Koki Coil Nailers were also recalled due a defective safety switch that could either cause a nail to discharge from the side of the nail gun or for multiple nails to discharge at once.

Any sort of injury caused by a defective nail gun is sure to be painful and debilitating. In order to recover, you may require extensive medical treatments and miss weeks of work. You should not be the one who has to pay for these consequences out of your own pocket. The liable party should be held accountable for their negligence.
