INJURED BY SOMEONE’S TOOL – MN INJURY COMPENSATION ATTORNEYS
Our lawyers have represented many people injured by a tool they borrowed from someone. Usually, the situation is that the tool or equipment was not maintained properly or had a problem that the owner of the tool did not warn our client about. There are many tools that can cause serious injuries if they are not maintained properly. For example, our lawyers have had cases where someone was injured by a circular saw, grinder, drill, and nail gun.
Sometimes the injury is caused by a defect in the tool. In that case, there may be a claim against the manufacturer. It is very important to save the tool that injured you in exactly the condition it was in at the time of the accident. Save all the parts and don’t fix or change anything. Also get photos if possible. Many times, in order to prove the case, our lawyer need to show exactly what went wrong with the tool or how it is defective. This may require experts examining the tool or equipment.
If you are injured by someone’s tool or equipment, there may be insurance coverage to help pay your medical bills and other compensation for the accident. For example, if the tool is owned by someone who owns a house, the case may be covered by their homeowner’s insurance if the accident was not business related – even if the accident was not at their house.
