Most tool injuries involve amputations, severe lacerations, the loss of an eye, or head and neck injuries. In each instance, costs associated with medical treatment, surgery, medication, and lost wages must be taken into account.
At GoldenbergLaw, PLLC, our defective tool injury lawyers on our Minneapolis team work with medical economists who provide thorough, accurate cost analyses of our client’s injuries. We also take into account pain and suffering, as well as long-term disability when a tool-related accident results in someone’s being unable to perform certain tasks.
Case Quick Facts
Where Most Tool Injuries Occur
Most tool injuries occur when people are on the job. Workers’ compensation benefits do not cover pain, suffering, disability, scarring, or emotional damages. That is why it’s important to have the case reviewed by an experienced product liability attorney, not just your workers’ compensation attorney. We are also able to help if you were injured at home.
The CPSC estimates that 900,000 people are injured each year using power tools. These tools are designed to cut, puncture, shred, slice, and sand metals, fiberglass, and woods. If a power tool makes contact with a person, bad outcomes like the following can occur:
The manufacturer of a power tool must identify and prevent hazards through design, guarding, and warnings. We have worked on thousands of product liability cases and we will help you understand your options and rights.

“Chuck” was a carpenter using a circular saw. Suddenly, the saw “kicked back” and severed a portion of his hand. He contacted GoldenbergLaw, and we immediately investigated the incident and the design of the saw. We hired an expert and commenced a lawsuit. We alleged that this injury could have been prevented if the saw had been designed with a “saw stop” feature and a riving knife feature. After extensive litigation, a settlement was reached for Chuck’s case.
