Nail Gun Accident Attorney
It is difficult to see the complete picture of nail gun injuries at work because many incidents are never reported, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Some of these injuries occur among owners working on their homes. Whether victims are homeowners or professionals, users of nail guns suffer at least 40,000 puncture wounds each year. These numbers, reported by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), are almost certainly lower than the actual number of injuries.

Injuries in Nail Gun Accidents
Nail guns use compressed air to fire nails into wood, stone, and concrete at high speed and velocity. And while they are known to increase productivity, their very speed and force result in injuries to many users. The most common type of injury is a puncture wound in the hands or arms. However, victims can suffer injuries to the eyes, head and mouth. Nail guns can also cause fractures, sprains, nerve damage, electrical burns, hearing loss, finger dislocation, and lacerations. Puncture wounds can become infected, and victims can even die. In short, seemingly innocuous nail guns are in reality a very dangerous product.
What Are Issues in Nail Gun Case?
When nail gun injuries are the result of manufacturing defects, lack of training, or other types of negligence, victims may be eligible to obtain compensation for their medical expenses, lost income or other costs related to the injury. Certain types of nail guns – known as coil type guns – are more likely to cause injuries. This might be a factor in a nail gun injury case. Proner & Proner will gather information about the circumstances of your injury, the type of nail gun, and whether or not you received proper training to use this type of equipment.
